We are currently experiencing problems with our How to Install page. We have therefore put our installation guide here whilst we resolve the issue.

How to Install

Step 1 – Surface prep & marking out
Remove any loose paint or plaster, and repair any flaking surfaces. Dust down the prepared surface and remove any grease or dirt. Seal the surface with a suitable primer. Mark out level lines using a spirit level on the blank wall surface.

Step 2 – Adhesive
Mix your tile adhesive to the desired consistency applying the adhesive to the surface at a depth of 3-4mm to an area you can cover quickly.

Step 3 – Fit the brick slips
From the bottom upwards, stick your brick slips to the desired surface, cutting in where necessary. Stick your second course, using your desired bond pattern and using spacers between courses. Complete the works whilst the adhesive is still workable.

Step 4 – Pointing
Once all the tiling is complete ensure the tiles are clean and dry, remove the spacers, then apply the pointing mortar between the joints. This can be squeezed into the joints using our Brick Slip Pointing Tool

Step 5 – Seal
If desired, when all the pointing has been completed, brush the whole wall to remove any loose deposits ensuring the surface is clean and dry. Apply a coat of matt finish sealer to the surface of the brick tiles using either a brush or roller.
