Can A Tiler Fit Brick Slips

Brick Slips And Brick Tiles being installed by tilerCan Brick Slips Be Installed By A Tiler?

Yes, a tiler can fit brick slips. Brick slips are essentially a thin cut of brick that can be applied to a wall like a tile. They are manufactured either by cutting the face off a brick or simply creating a molded tile from scratch. Tilers are skilled in laying tiles, and the process of laying brick slips is similar to laying tiles. Tilers can use adhesive to fix the brick slips onto the wall and then use pointing mortar to fill the gaps between the slips and the wall. Tilers should be able to fit brick slips into your home and give it a professional-looking finish.
