Whether you are re-rendering your property or having external wall insulation installed, you do not have to lose the character of original brickwork. Our brick slips are lightweight and therefore perfect for adding the finishing touch to any solid wall insulation job. We can offer our acrylic Acrylibricks or –for a higher price- brick slips cut from real bricks. Both look completely authentic – you’ll fool everyone!
Can I get brick slips to match the existing brickwork?
There is a huge range of colours to choose from, whether the customer would like to make a statement or match the existing brickwork of their property. We have a selection of more traditional reds and browns, as well as sand and white colours.
How does the process work?
The installation process is really simple. First up, a special adhesive is attached to the wall. The brick slips are then embedded into this in a staggered formation, like standard brickwork. Acrylic brick slips can be bent around corners without fuss and can be cut with a sharp pair of scissors. Finally, the process is finished by painting ‘mortar’ around the bricks with a 10mm brush. This also comes in several colours for a realistic look.
Here are some photos during and after installation:
How long will the brick slips last?
All the pigments used in our brick slips are resistant to UV, so they won’t fade over time when exposed to sunlight. They are virtually maintenance-free but have the additional benefits of being easily washable, impact resistant and also vapour permeable. Our brick slips come with a 10 year manufacturer-backed warranty, although they are bound to last much longer.
