Fake brick / stone for interior application

I have a few small spaces (@3' x 12') on interior sheetrock walls that I want to cover with fake brick or stone. Does anyone have any reccomendations on a good product to use? I would also consider thin sheets of woodgrain panneling for the spaces as well.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Try z-brick. It is easy to work with and gives a very real finished appearance. pm me a cell #, and I'll send you a pic of mine.

My parents used Z brick many moons ago and it was a really good looking product.

I just come here to sample the WHINE!!

If you are driving for a "rustic" look, may want to consider Tongue/Groove barnside in Knotty Pine, or even Cedar T&G. You can alternate it diagonally for a different twist if you like. Easy to apply.

I'm a parttime stone mason, but real stone, so really can't offer up much adice on the cultured stuff.

I used Z Brick about 30 years ago and it was great stuff. I did not know they still made it! Do you know where I can but this material?

Re: Fake brick / stone for interior application

We used Stonecraft two years ago on our fireplace we built at camp. It was really easy to place. If you know someone who is into concrete for a living or things like that talk to them for advice.

The stuff we decided on was about $9/SF. I laid it and it turned out pretty good I thought.
