A whole new way to do brick

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.
