What Is Manufactured Brick?
Manufactured brick, also known as handmade brick veneer, is a type of thin brick with endless possibilities. On the surface, it has all the character and appeal of traditional masonry. But without the heft and thickness of full-bed brick.
Manufactured brick comes in thin lightweight pieces known as flats and corners. These pieces are attached to an existing structure with adhesive and can be arranged to form interlocking patterns that are virtually indistinguishable from hand-laid brick. And once manufactured brick is installed, it’s incredibly low-maintenance. It just needs an occasional cleaning to remove dust or debris.
The result? A beautiful and lasting addition to any space.
