A Made In Canada Brick Facing from Stonetile

There's something about the look of brick. It truly transforms buildings from ordinary to something special. But, thanks to Canadian weather, building with actual bricks has never been a really viable option. So we turn to brick facing, tiles and thin brick systems, many of which are imported.

Which is why it's so nice to find a local manufacturer of high quality brick tile systems.

Made In Calgary

Stonetile (Canada) Ltd. is a company that is based in Calgary, Alberta. They've been making manufactured stone cladding products for a very long time, and have a large facility in the city that produces all of them.

Buying locally manufactured products is always a good idea. There are no import headaches, for one thing, and when products are made to work in the Alberta climate, you can be sure they will be able to stand up to anything Canadian weather can throw at them. That's not always true for products created for warmer, milder climates!

But when you choose products from suppliers like Stonetile, you're also putting money directly back into the Canadian economy, and that's good for all of us!

Unique Features

The Stonetile brick tile system looks great, and installs fast, but it's also got a lot of smart features (like all of their products.) These features include:

  1. 10mm rain screen for drainage
  2. A unique galvanized steel fastening system for fast and secure installation
  3. Made for Canadian freeze / thaw cycles
  4. Can be installed year round, due to mortarless application
  5. Hail, fire, earthquake and fade resistant
  6. Flexible grout
  7. And more

Same Look, Less Hassle

The truth is, while brick looks great, there's a lot that goes into it. Just installing face brick well enough that it looks good is a dying art world wide. Then there's the mess, fuss, materials and time required to install it, which makes it prohibitively expensive.

A home grown brick tile product like the one from Stonetile combines the classic look of real brick with ease of installation, and a lot of very smart, built in features. It's basically maintenance free, and once it's installed, you can forget it. You'll never need to repoint the mortar or replace a single brick. It cuts easily, wears to a beautiful even patina, and is suitable for new builds and retrofitting.

If you're in the market for a high quality brick finish on a project (commercial, residential or DIY) be sure to check out this home grown option! The company manufactures a large range of manufactured stone facing products too, all of which incorporate smart features that make them easy to install, durable, and made for (and in!) Canada.
