Why do anything in life? If someone told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it?  If someone told you to eat 3 big macs in a row, would you do it?  It would probably depend on what the task involved, and what benefit there were in doing so.  There is always a benefit in doing the things we do.  We eat to survive, we work to make money, we go out with friends to have fun, we sacrifice our own time and money and resources for the benefit of others, and so forth. There are many reasons why human beings do what they do, but they all contain one common quality; they benefit you or someone else.

Well, we most certainly have an idea for you that will benefit your life in a huge way.  The next time you have a home or business project, choose faux brick panels.  In the end you will be very grateful that you chose the faux vs. the authentic option.  And here’s why.

Faux brick panels are made from a high quality polyurethane foam.

So what?

Well, polyurethane brings several beneficial qualities along with it: affordability, durability, and ease of application.

Polyurethane is affordable! Unlike installing authentic brick, you will only need caulk or glue and a few standard tools.  No mortar and absolutely no labor costs.

Polyurethane is also durable! By nature, it is a closed cell material.  This means that moisture cannot penetrate its surface.  Because of that, mold, mildew, and rot will not creep in on your gorgeous faux brick panels once the project is complete.  At Faux Direct, all of our faux brick panels are designed to withstand the effects of weather, both hot and cold.  This means you can use them outdoors as well. They are also UV resistant, and we have fire rated options available should you desire to place them around a heat source, such as a fireplace or stove.  They will not chip or break, and you can count on them looking amazing for years to come.

Polyurethane is very easy to install.  Like previously mentioned, all you need are a few standard tools.  This means you can do it all on your own! They are lightweight, and can be applied in a matter of hours.
