Tumbled Brick: The New Old

Thin Bricks for Precast and Tilt-up Panels come in all shapes and sizes these days, but who doesn’t love the look of old brick? If you are interested in constructing a commercial building with an antiquated look and cannot acquire enough reclaimed bricks for your project, tumbled bricks are the answer!

Tumbled thin bricks are bricks that are mechanically distressed to create a weathered and aged appearance. The manufacturing process involves “roughing up” the brick to create rounded edges and worn surfaces, ultimately creating a timeless and warm look with rustic character – one that mimics the look of old, reused, or handmade brick.

AP can help by providing you with not only the brick but also the form liner to complete your project.
