PORTSTONE THIN BRICK FOR WALLS
None of this is brick as you know it. PortStone, the original 1/4" thin brick , is made from polymer modified concrete and comes in sheets, or panels, for fast and easy installation. All PortStone products come pre-sealed unless otherwise specified. We have 10 brick and stone patterns and 21 brick colors and styles to choose from. With a few exceptions, we can make any of our color blends in any of our patterns giving you nearly 200 possible color and patterns combinations to choose form.
ROSE HILL BRICK COLOR
Brick Color - Rose Hill Brick Pattern - Face Brick
We have several brick colors for use exclusively on walls. These bricks are more heavily textured than our other brick colors and would be uncomfortable to walk on and very hard to clean, but they make a great looking wall brick. We can also make any of our other colors for use on walls.
PortStone can easily be used on vertical surfaces such as walls and backsplashes. The photos above and below show walls done in our Rose Hill color. Rose Hill is a very heavily textured brick made especially for use on vertical surfaces. PortStone can be installed over drywall on interior walls using ceramic tile mastic adhesive. For covered exterior walls where rain water infiltration is not an issue such as covered porches and patios, PortStone can be install over concrete block, regular bricks, or concrete backerboard such as Hardi-Backer, Durock, Wonderboard, etc., using thin-set mortar. If PortStone is being installed on exterior walls that will be exposed to rain, it must be installed in compliance with ASTM 1780. You can see a very detailed guide to ASTM 1780 installation requirements here - Masonry Veneer Manufacturer’s Association.
Like all PortStone thin brick products, our Facebrick come in panels containing 8 bricks each which greatly speeds and simplifies installation.
The color seen in the photo above, the photo to the left, and on the backsplash seen below are all done in our Rose Hill color blend. Rose Hill is only intended for use on walls due to its heavy texture.

PortStone makes a great backsplash.
You can see the deep texture and detail we put into our Rose Hill brick blend in the photo above. Take a look at how nicely our Corner Brick wrap the corners of the cooking center. Some of the bricks in our Rose Hill blend are purposefully made to be thicker than our normal 1/4" thick brick. This is done to add depth and texture with out sacrificing the ease and speed of installation that is only available from PortStone.

This brick porch and walkway were done with our 60-65% White St. Louis brick color blend in the Large Runningbond pattern. The porch walkway is bordered with our Nose Brick which wraps the edge of the concrete and has a 2 1/4" turn-down. Even though PortStone Thin Brick is no thicker than ceramic tile, our Nose Brick gives the appearance of full thickness bricks. The wall in this photo is PortStone's Rose Hill color.
