Brick Wall Construction – The Easy way
Deciding to create a brick or stone wall accent is always a great idea.
These improvements will revitalize your room and will make your store stand out from the rest. Most customers walk into stores not only because they like the product on display but also if the room is inviting.
This is why so many retailers and display makers have moved toward faux brick accents. It is a very popular and appealing look.
Now, when it comes to installing the product, you have a choice of going with the difficult or the easy solution. Both look realistic but one can take a long time and the other just a matter of hours to complete.
With real brick you will need to:
- Prepare the substrate with wall-boards, concrete panels, wire mesh, etc
- Install each single brick or stone one at a time
- You will need to use a thin-set to hold them in place
- Use mortar to close each gap
- Cut many pieces with a wet saw
- Clean up a real mess.
Let’s also not forget that the vast majority of store and home owners do not know how to use real brick nor they feel like learning such a laborious process.
The cost for an average brick layer or mason is out of most people’s reach.
