I am finishing my basement and want one wall to be brick face.

I would like opinions for the various options: brick-it, z-brick, brick veneer.

Ease of installation, cost, quality and look.

Check on Owens Corning's website for their thin faux brick facing or go to a local brick supplier for thin real brick facing materials you can use.

If you are looking to place stone veneer in your basement, you can purchase molds to make them yourself. StoneCasterStudio.com has an array of stone styles that you can use to create any look you wnat. Currently there are no "brick" styles, but plenty of natural stone profiles. Check it out. You do not have to pay $10sqft for pre-cast when it is simple and fun to make your own. Further, you have complete control over the colors you want and your imagination is the limit. I used the products to face an extension on my home and they look fantastic.
