Installation questions and answers

Installation questions and answers

Our brick tiles are the quick and easy way to achieve the look and feel of original exposed brick without the hassle of having to build a new wall or the mess and hard work involved with exposed and repointing an existing brick wall.

Here are a few of the questions we get asked on a regular basis regarding installation…

  • Do you install?

No, we currently only supply the brick tiles. We do however have a good working relationship with Just Walls UK who offer an installation service for brick tiles. Terry and the team at Just Walls UK have been working alongside us for a few years now and offer a first class professional nationwide service and are more than willing to provide you with a custom installation quotation.

Check out the gallery below for some progress photos of a recent project the guys at Just Walls UK completed using our Shire Blend brick tiles. This project was across two seperate rooms in a customer’s home and was completed within one day.

  • How hard is it?

We always say that, like regular tiling, installation of our brick tiles can be done by a competent DIYer. If you are feeling confident enough to give it a try, take a look at our installation guide for some step by step instructions on how best to tackle the project.

  • Do I need a tiler or a brick layer?

A tiler can easily install our brick tiles. The installation process is very similar to normal tiling. The only area where it is different is that we recommend using pointing mortar rather than tile grout for the joints. This can be achieved easily by using our Brick Tile Pointing Tool to squeeze the mortar into the brick joints.

  • Can the brick tiles be fitting in a fireplace/with a wood burning stove?

Yes they can. We supply our brick tiles to many fireplace installers. The brick tiles and the installation products we supply are heat resistant making them perfect for fireplace projects such as this case study project completed by local fireplace installers Michael John Stoves.

  • Can the brick tiles be used in a bathroom?

This is a bit of a tricky one. Yes they can be used in a bathroom but we would not recommend using them in areas where they will be subject to heavy water usage such as a shower cubicle.

Along with our online installation guide, our team are only a phone call away and are happy to help out with any installation questions you may have.

I want to install a large area on the outside of a building off a scaffold so we will be shifting a lot of slips up and along scaffold to supply the installation. How best to carry the slips to the installation site without breaking them? Do you use a kind of brick hod or similar?

hi martin, the brick slips come in cardboard boxes each holding 30 brick slips (1/2 square metre). These are handheld size so should be no problem with moving them around a site.
