Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigCat Great product for DIY accent wall!
I did a lot of research on this product before pulling the trigger and I read every review I could, so I thought I would add my 2 cents. I had to order 11 boxes to complete my 8x11 accent wall and the product arrived mostly intact, there were several chips in the bricks but that added to the rustic look I was going for on this wall. If you're looking for exact edges with no chips, this isn't the right product for you! The bricks were easily cut with a diamond dipped blade, but this will produce a lot of "brick dust" so make sure you do it outside and use a breathing mask for safety. After applying the mastic to the dry wall, the sheets matched up very nicely and it wasn't too difficult to cut the brick around the sconces I had installed. Make sure you use brick sealer before you start grouting because it helps out a ton with cleaning off the mortar for the finished product.
The only major issue I had was grouting in between the bricks after it was applied to the wall. I watched several Utube videos where they showed the guy using a grout bag and easily applying the grout, but after several attempts watering down the mortar, we still couldn't use the grout bag. We had to apply the grout using dry wall spackling tool to hold the grout and then using a grouting tool to push the grout into each crack. This was a very time consuming and took me and my buddy about 10 hours to complete the project. Once the mortar was dry, it was very easy to go back and clean off the brick because we applied the brick sealer before we started grouting. Overall, I'm very pleased with the final look and I would highly recommend the product to anyone looking for an over the top accent wall!

This product worked exactly like we hoped it would.
We are very happy with the results. A few broken pieces in the box, but nothing major.
We would definitely recommend and use this product again.

Great product. Shipping was quick. Product was packaged well with no breakage. Installed easily and looks like an old chimney with our double oven it. Ordered some more to do an accent wall in the bedroom. It too arrived promptly and with no damage.

BrickWeb is an excellent product! After tearing down several layers of a 1930's fireplace, I discovered that I needed to reface the original to achieve the look I wanted and yet reduce the overall weight of the fireplace. Brickweb did the job. It was easy to install and easy to grout. Cleanup was a snap. For this job, I installed it both horizontally and vertically with no problems. I would highly recommend this product for both professional and do-it-yourself types. Thank you, Brickweb!

Brickweb and Home Depot really delivered on this one! We are soon-to-be "empty nesters" and wanted to convert the teen room into an upscale entertaining area and convertible office. The small alcove at one end of our basement provided the perfect area for brick to simulate an old foundation wall and give it a wine-cellar feel. The Brickweb was packed really well and arrived in perfect condition. Install was easy for this do-it-himselfer (I am a marketing guy, not a contractor!), and aided by a very good YouTube video I watched a few times. Cutting the thin brick to exact size to fit the adjoining wall was easy with a hand grinder. This project was the first time I used this tool, and it proved to be fast and accurate. Word to wise, wear a hoodie, eye and nose/mouth protection because there is a lot of dust! Naturally this is outside work. Completing the job involved mortaring the joints (Tec sanded, Light Smoke) with a grout bag and tooling with a masonry tool -- two more "firsts" for me. It proved easy and fast work once I achieved the right consistency of the mortar. Compliments are coming in now, and I pass these along to you and the Brickweb folks. The product delivered on promise, gave the desired look-and-feel, and complements perfectly the granite countertop and Home Depot Lyndhurst Cabernet cabinetry!
