Why use a professional for Brick Slip installation
POINTING – Pointing is a big part of the installation and can ruin it if not done properly. From experience we know that pointing is beyond the skill of tilers and needs to be done by a bricklayer or a company like us with experience.
LONGEVITY-Brick slips are a fantastic solution however they are essentially tiles and so longevity needs to be an absolute priority. Bricks last for hundreds of years whilst we all know tiles come loose with poor installation. It takes many years in the game to develop the tricks and technical knowledge to ensure work is going to stand the test of time. (Our work wont fail)
THE LOOK- Brick slips are a tricky thing to install as they have both aspects of bricklaying and tiling. One has to understand the rules of both to create a seamless installation that looks like it was meant to be there. The only solution for this is experience. There are mistakes to be made by any new installer and its best they have already made them before they get to your job.
CLEANLINESS – Brickslips are very porous and the high performance tiling adhesives used will stain them in an instant. Pointing also is a concern for staining the face of the brick slips. These brickslips can get expensive and it takes many years in the game to be a clean installer so be sure to verify your installer before they waste your money.
