Brick slip installation
Now, you can go through your accessories requirements individually. (Let’s face it, you may have a few tools lurking in the garage which can be used for your brick slips project). However, we’d always recommend the basics – like our 8 piece installation kit, which comprises of:-
- Mortar Pointing Gun
- Adhesive Spreader
- Pointing Trowel
- Brick Jointing tool
- Wire Brush
- Mixing Bucket
- 5Ltr PVA
- 200 Brick slip spacers.
Or if you have found a few tools spare, you could opt for our 3 piece tool kit https://brickslips.co.uk/brick-slip-accessories/383-brick-slips-tool-kit.html
Fixing and mortar
Next we recommend that you order the mortar that best matches your slips and decor. Our range can be found at https://brickslips.co.uk/51-brick-slip-mortar and each bag of mortar covers approximately 4m2. To apply the brick slips to the substrate you will require our Rapid Set Adhesive.
Accessories: from pointing trowel to brick sealer.
Now for the final touch. We like to offer a brick sealer for our products. This can be applied by roller or by brush however you recommend that you allow at least 2-3 weeks for the bricks and mortar to fully dry out before applying brick sealer. Sealant is available in either a gloss or matt finish, and each container covers an area of 5m2 (with 2 coats).
You’re ready to go!
So, let’s get to it! Go dig out the tools and lets get brick slipping.
