Don't take our word for why you should install thin brick. We asked a couple of our customers why they chose thin brick. Read their responses below.

  • "Research the process and take time to learn each step. Be realistic that it takes time (time to set, seal, mortar, seal…etc). Make sure that you know the look you want before starting so you can be sure that your dream becomes a reality!"

What color brick did you use for your project?

  • "Castle Gate Herringbone Panel"

What was your project?

  • "Sunroom floor"

Why did you choose brick?

  • "We went back and forth on picking the best floor. Actually we bought slate for the whole room and ended up returning it because we weren't 100% sold on it. I had my heart set on brick."

How did you find Old Mill Brick?

  • "We found the floor at Floor and Decor. We scoured the whole building up and down, every aisle looking for what we were most attracted to. I found myself constantly back at the brick."

Why did you choose Old Mill Brick?

  • "We chose Old Mill Brick because it is so natural looking. The sheets of herringbone are very easy to lay."

What color brick did you use for your project?

  • "I chose Castle Gate. I was torn between a few similar colors/styles, and I was only looking at pictures online. So it was a little difficult to tell how it would look in my space. But I am happy with the choice."

What was your project?

  • "I was building a bedroom in my basement and I wanted a few different sections of walls to have brick on them."

Why did you choose brick?

  • "I've always liked brick, whether it's the exterior of a house, interior rooms in old buildings, etc."

How did you find Old Mill Brick?

  • "I was searching for brick online. I am almost sure I ended up buying it through Home Depot's website."

Why did you choose Old Mill Brick?

  • "I like the option of using real brick, and I'd never worked with it so I thought It would be fun to try it out. I also liked the color/styles options that I found through Old Mill Brick. I would strongly recommend going with Old Mill Brick."

Any advice for those looking into brick for their future projects?

  • "Carefully plan out how the brick is going to start and finish on all four sides, and plan accordingly. If at all possible install the brick before installing adjacent walls, ceiling, trim, etc so you don't have to make awkward cuts to the brick. It will look more natural."
