Using Faux Brick As a Chimney Facade

Better Aesthetic, Lower Maintenance

The number one reason our customers tell us they love GenStone for chimney facades is the look. Our faux brick panels are manufactured using molds made from real brick. And, every single panel is hand-painted using colors inspired by real brick installations. This translates into a finished product that is visually indistinguishable from real brick.

What’s more, we now offers custom coloring options for our faux brick and faux stone products. This has huge implications for homeowners! Now, if you want to use a faux brick veneer that goes well with the color theme of your home, you can.

Or, you can always choose from our line-up of pre-colored faux brick products, including:

Faux Brick Chimney Facade Installation

If you’re not totally sold on the idea of using GenStone faux brick panels to create a chimney facade, this last fact will seal the deal for you: installation is a breeze. It’s actually something you can do yourself, without having to hire a mason or contractor.

As long as you can safely access your chimney and you have a few basic hand tools, you could complete a faux brick chimney facade installation in a single afternoon.

Here are the required steps:

  1. Measure the surface area of your chimney exterior. This will give you an idea of how many panels to order. For tips on taking accurate measurements, view our ‘How to Measure’ guide.
  2. Choose the GenStone faux brick style that suits your home. Refer to the options listed above, or get in touch with us to start the custom coloring process.
  3. Place your order for panels, ledgers, trim, and corner pieces. You can buy GenStone from your local, participating hardware store.
    Not sure which panels to buy, or how many of each you need? Just ask us; we’ll be happy to help!
  4. Cut your faux brick panels to size. Every GenStone faux brick panel can be cut-to-size using a handsaw, radial saw, or circular saw.
  5. Affix the panels using pre-drilled holes and industrial adhesive. Don’t forget to visit our ‘How to Install’ page for more faux brick panel installation tips and tricks.
  6. Enjoy the new look of your faux stone chimney facade!
