faux bricks

-

What kind of sealer can we use on the faux brick?

The Manubric Sealer is perfect for enhancing the color and protecting the faux bricks. 

 

I don't see the style I want in stock. When will you get more?

We're constantly refreshing our inventory and also creating new styles. Contact our team here if you don't see the product you'd like in-stock and we can give you specifics on when we'll have more. 

 

Can we install the faux bricks on a fireplace or a backsplash?

Yes, our faux bricks can be installed on a fireplace or backsplash.

For a fireplace, be advised that because each fireplace unit has it’s own BTU emanation, we recommend using a polymer-modified mortar instead of Manubric’s adhesive. We also recommend verifying with the fireplace supplier which polymer-modified mortar corresponds best with the BTU emanation of your fireplace.

For a backsplash, we recommend using a sealer to protect the brick. If the chosen faux brick is white, we also recommend testing the sealer on one brick, because it can cause the brick’s color to appear yellow. The sealer available on our website has been tested to assure best results. However, if the chosen faux brick is white, we recommend testing the sealer on one brick, because it can cause the brick’s color to appear yellow

Can we buy units instead of boxes?

Our Faux Bricks, Wall Paneling and Loft Blocks are created as a pre-packaged set. When measuring your walls to determine the square footage that you need covered, we suggest adding an extra box to make sure you have enough. 

 

How long will it take to deliver?

Orders placed during the week usually take 7 to 10 business days to arrive at your home, office or business. 

 

How can I cut the wall panels?

We recommend using a bench saw that is equipped with a high-quality finishing blade (80 teeth)

 

How do I cut around my electrical outlets?

For the Bricks and Loft Blocs: 

  1. Shut off the breaker from the main panel and make sure there is no electricity going to the outlet.
  2. Unscrew the electrical outlet and pull it from the wall. We recommend taping the wires with electrical tape. 
  3. Install the bricks or Loft Blocs so that they follow the contour of the hole in the wall. 
  4. Once the installation is done and the grout is dry, re-install the outlet with 6-32 ½’’ screws (your old screws won’t fit anymore).

For the Wall Paneling: 

  1. Shut off the breaker from the main panel and make sure there is no electricity going to the outlet.
  2. Unscrew the electrical outlet and pull it from the wall. We recommend taping the wires with electrical tape. 
  3. Before installing the panel on the wall, cut a hole in the panel the exact same size (height and width) as the hole in the wall. To cut, use an oscillating tool. 
  4. Once the installation is done, re-install the outlet with 6-32 ½’’ screws (your old screws won’t fit anymore).

 

Can I install a TV on my wall?

Yes, but for our Wall Paneling only

TV’s can be affixed onto Wall Paneling using a mounting bracket, using a stud as an anchoring point. If a stud cannot be located, a FLIPTOGGLE may be used in its place. FLIPTOGGLE instructions can be found at: https://cobraanchors.com/en/fliptoggle.html

*Be advised that a wall stud must be found before wall paneling is in place

This information is only for wall paneling: the hole that you have to pre-drill should be done in the thinnest part of the panel (see picture bellow) at your chosen height. 

 

 

 

Can I use Manubric Faux Bricks outside?

No, our products are for interior use only.

 

Can I stick your products on plywood?

No, our products should not be used on plywood. 

 

Some of the pieces arrived broken in the boxes. What do I do?

Our team takes extra care to make sure our products arrive safely. If you receive a broken product, please contact our customer support team so we can correct the issue.

 

On what type of surface can I stick your products?

The surface should be clean, porous and even. Remove any excess dirt, dust or other substances before application.

 

What percentage of loss do I have to calculate to make sure I have enough merchandise?

Plan for 8%-12% loss depending on the complexity of the project.

 

How should I apply the adhesive?

Unless otherwise noted, Manubric products should be installed using double bonding. Adhesive should be applied to the back of the Faux Bricks as well as the wall, using 3/16’’ notched trowel, which can be purchased from our website.

 

I bought Faux Bricks and corners. Where do I start the installation?

Install the corners first and then the Faux Bricks. Use the same process for our Loft Blocks.

 

I am an experienced bricklayer and I usually wash bricks with acid to remove mortar stains. Can I use this technique with your bricks?

No, our bricks are a decorative element and should not be washed with acid or water.

 

Do you have corners for the Wall Paneling?

No, we do not currently offer corners for our Wall Paneling.

However, if you don’t end your project at the corner of the wall, pine molding can be used. Please contact our customer service team and we will be happy to assist with color matching to give your project the perfect result.
