Slide2:

Brick slips are a great way to bring a pastoral quality to your home and its walls. They are quite in vogue these days as many homeowners are using brick slips to decorate their living spaces. However, the popularity of  brick slip cladding  has also led to the proliferation of fake or faux brick slips. If you find yourself confused about the differences between the two, refer to the infographic below.

Slide3:

Colour – You can instantly tell a fake brick slip by its colour since it’s made from concrete or mortar and coloured using dyes which lends a faux appearance (red appears pinkish). Real brick slips, though, are made from clay and don’t suffer fading. Texture – The texture is one of the most prized things about brick slips. Moulded and shaped by heat, a real brick slip’s textures are rustic, unique and authentic. However, fake brick slips feature manipulated textures that look unnatural and cheap. Ease of Installation – Faux brick slips are sold precast in fabrics, which is touted as easy to install. But the truth is that installing faux brick slips using adhesives is much harder compared to real brick slips which come as separate tiles and thus, are easier to install.
