Stone veneer tile over brick

I am considering installing a stone Veneer tile over the brick portion in my house. I am looking at Rock Ridge from Floor and Decor



I don't want to user a Hardieboard or cement board since I have to keep the thickness under 1inch (Ledge cover only sticks out 1 inch). Can I cover the brick with mortar UltraFlex LFT fill the grout lines, put a thin layer on the tile and just stick to the tile (in one step)

This area doesn't get any rain and I am planning on sealing the stone (not grouting it, just sealing it)

Here is the brick

Welcome to the forum.

Please add a first name to the signature line so we'll know what to call you.

You wouldn't use a tile backer for that application, so no problem there.

I would use Laticrete's MVIS to adhere the tile to the brick. Skim it first to fill in all the mortar joints and the other tiny voids on the face of the brick. Then use the appropriate size botched trowel for setting the stone.

Are there any cracks in the brick or mortar joints? That happens sometimes from settling. You don't want to set tile over that.

Welcome to the forum!

What Kevin said.

Except, I’d used an appropriately sized notched trowel instead of a botched trowel.

I'll third what Kevin said, with the exception of changing the mortar.

Ultraflex LFT will be fine for this application, unless you are in an area subjected to lots of freeze-thaw. In that case, we would suggest using our Kerabond T mixed with Keraply in place of water.

I'd also like to echo Kevin's concerns regarding cracks.
Are there any cracks in the mortar or brick at any point on the wall?

Thanks for all the replies. Really appreciated.

Just to make sure I understand this correctly.
Everything is happening in one step. I skim the wall flat and add some mortar to the back of the tile (with a notched trowel) and stick them on. I don't have to wait for the skim job to dry, correct?

Also, I am in Chicago. Not sure if that make a difference with the Freeze/Thaw cycles we get up here

Do you have a picture of the tile, or a link to it? Is it in a sheet with irregular edges on the sides to allow them to interlock? Or is it a stacked stone?
