Installation

Unlike full bed brick, Authintic Brick can be installed virtually anywhere you want the warm and rich look of genuine brick without the worry of having a structure to support the weight of typical full-sized clay brick. Applying thin brick to a substrate can be a do-it-yourself project or installed by experienced trades people.
