Birmingham, MI (PRWEB) September 07, 2013
Masonry veneer & alternatives company, Ambrico, recently released an article describing the restoration of a historic building through brick veneers. The article showcases the potential of Thin Brick and EZ-Wall products for preservative purposes.
Brad Sorock, spokesman for Ambrico, said: "There are many cases in which Thin Brick products are used to maintain the integrity of a historically significant structure, and this is one of the strongest."
The study focuses around the Second Baptist Church of Detroit, the oldest African-American church in Michigan. The building needed an exterior restoration without any major reconstruction of the city landmark, while simultaneously protecting the original structure from future damage. Thin Brick was used to restore and protect the aesthetics of the church, and Ambrico was able to duplicate the architectural elements of the surrounding neighborhood.
Ambrico’s line of products features the revolutionary Thin Brick and brick veneers that are created for use in many kinds of construction applications. The company work includes renovations on large hospitals, major sports arenas, and schools of many styles and sizes that use the EZ-Wall System and Thin Bricks. Ambrico Thin Brick is simple to implement with the EZ Wall Thin Brick Installation System. The simplicity enables most small projects to be completed in a matter of hours or just a few days, saving builders loads of time and money. It’s a simple, affordable answer for rejuvenating a space or adding the finishing accents to a newly completed project.
Thin Brick is has made a name for itself from being fractions of the weight and price of traditional brick masonry, reducing its impact on the builder, the builder's wallet, and the environment! Additional features of Thin Brick include its self-supporting nature – it does not create any additional load or jeopardize the structural integrity of the target building, and can be put in place even after the rest of the building has been constructed. Thin Brick is not designed to be load-bearing, but its price, ease of use, and flexibility is an excellent solution for modern architects and builders.
