Starting a restaurant or remodeling a basement man cave has plenty of possible obstacle and possible sources of frustration.
From the planning to the design, from foreseeing the total cost to dividing the budget properly.
The last thing an installer or owner needs is adding the headache of a difficult brick wall accent installation. Companies that make fake brick panels know this issue firsthand. The reason why they are in business is because they are aware of what an installer needs therefore they go straight to delivering that aid.
Regular brick, whether it’s full or veneer, it is quite messy. Let’s face it, mixing mortar, building a wall behind it that will hold the weight of the finish product, cleaning the grout lines and sealing everything is not exactly the most exciting job.
Manufacturers of faux brick panels have done most of the work in-house. The panels come in 12-14 square feet sections that are basically ready to go. The grout lines are already there (and they look absolutely real) and painted. The bricks are already sealed so there is no need to do it on site to avoid dirt, grease and food from staining them.
The phrase we hear so often is “it was easy and effortless to install these brick panels”. Or, “we’ll never go back to regular brick”.
Homeowners and business owners also love the fact that these imitation brick sheets create such little dirt while they are being installed.
It’s almost as if to make a faux brick wall they used wallpaper.
Today the “dumping regular brick on the installer” is quite over. Yes, there are still companies who are so used to install brick-by-brick that they fear change but the truth is that once they try brick sheets they can’t get enough of them.
The job goes from messy to fun.
