Preparation Before Installing Brick Slip Cladding

Before you start to install brick slip cladding, you need to ensure that the wall is prepared, this is the same regardless if you opt for our Brick Slips, Fireplace Brick Panels or Brick Tiles. It is important to make sure your surface is clean, free from dust and that any damaged surface is repaired and that there is no loose debris. Any of these that are not rectified will void the installation of brick cladding and can make it fail.

Installation of Brick Slip Cladding

When installing brick slip cladding, it’s important to start at the bottom and work your way up. If you are installing in an area that requires corners we always advise to install corners first. When you start applying your first row,  Use a spirit level to ensure evenness in height and make sure that each brick slip is level with its neighbour. Once you’ve finished installing all of your brick tiles along one row of your wall (or whatever other surface), repeat this process using a staggered bond known as a brick bond.


Maintenance of Brick Slip Cladding

Brick slip cladding is a very robust and long lasting product there is almost no maintenance required for keeping your brick cladding looking its best. What we advise is using our Brick slip Sealer to protect the fascia of the brick slips and prevent staining and mass weathering. Our brick sealer is market leading and only needs to be applied the once. Should you wish to clean your brick slips we advise doing so with just a damp cloth or sponge and giving them a light clean and then using a hard-wire brush to remove any debris from your brick slip cladding.

Advantages of Brick Slip Cladding

Brick slip cladding is a great option for adding value and character to your home. It’s easy to install, durable, and can be used in many applications. Brick slip cladding is made from bricks that have been cut into thin strips or slices. These slices are then applied over the surface of your wall by using mortar as an adhesive. This method allows you to create beautiful designs on the interior and  exterior of your home without having to hire professionals.

Brick slip cladding is also very easy-to-maintain because it requires little maintenance beyond cleaning off any dirt or debris that may accumulate on top of it over time (which should happen regularly).
