You love the look of brick. But you don’t love its excessive weight, the costly structural members it requires, or the need to bring in a second contractor to configure a continuous insulation barrier under it.
You can get the brick look you love (and avoid everything you don’t) by applying NewBrick® over a NewBrick CI system in both new construction and renovation. NewBrick over a NewBrick CI system is the single-source, fully tested, easy-to-apply brick exterior that will give you the aesthetic you desire along with the best energy performance possible with conventional cladding.
