Frequently Asked Brick Questions

How old are the used reclaim antique brick?

Used antique brick are 125 years old and come from buildings that are torn down. Once that building and it’s brick are gone (sold and shipped out) we must go to the next building. Each building is unique to its own. We cannot post photo brick from every demo job therefore the photo we post on the web are in the general. The brick can vary from building to building, we try and get as close as possible to the photos on the website.

Meaning they can be used for your end cuts or trim areas leaving your full brick in tack. We also always add extra to every shipment to cover the breakage. If the shipment looks to be completely damaged from shipping do not except the order take photos and notify us immediately.

How Many Bricks Will You Need For The Project?

Measure the height x width, subtract any openings. This will give you a square footage total x by the brick per square foot.

We do not test old brick for lead but we do state that antique reclaim brick could contain lead. If it is a concern then you may look at other new brick.

Don't Forget To Clean And Wash You Bricks

We recommend cleaning both sides of the brick, the front side is harder to clean on an interior install once installed and the backside or cut side of the brick might have loose dust from the cutting process still on the brick and must be clean before attaching it to the wall.
