From outdoor chimneys and fireplaces to decorative walls and retaining walls, thin brick provides a modern and updated look to any outdoor space.

Outdoor chimneys and fireplaces

Choose from an array of thin brick sizes, textures, colors, and patterns to bring your outdoor space to life. We will work with you to choose just the right product for your existing style and architecture.

Decorative and retaining walls

While retaining walls can be purely functional, aesthetics can still come into play. By using some decorative elements in the thin brick family, a wall can become a focal point along a driveway, walkway, or landscaped area.

Benefits of thin brick

Thin brick is a great alternative to full size brick because it doesn’t require a support ledge and can easily be used for re-facing jobs.

It also weighs considerably less so it can be installed in areas where brick wouldn’t be an option, takes much less time to install, and costs less than traditional brick.

Just like traditional brick, thin brick is low-maintenance and will not wear with time, so you won’t need to worry about repainting or resealing your brick.
