Thin brick is a much thinner version of full-face brick. Whether it’s an accent wall, a backsplash, a cement slab walkway, or a fireplace surround, you can now specify brick anywhere. Royal Thin Brick is both a beautiful and a sensible alternative to full brick, in part because it provides the look and feel of a full brick installation without the construction or weight requirements of traditional brick. With thin brick, a brick finish is not restricted to the confines of a footer and labor-intensive masonry work. Instead, you can install thin brick like ceramic tile using tiles’ tried-and-true, less labor-intensive installation methods.
In recent years, as manufacturing technology has improved and design tastes have veered toward the use of natural materials, interest in thin brick among architects, designers, and consumers has grown. This renewed interest has also fueled a movement toward veneer materials to add beauty to indoor and outdoor applications. Thin brick makes an excellent veneer material.
