Several years ago we began receiving requests to match
the brick in buildings which were built in the early twentieth century and
before. There are several reasons why we are able to do this. We mine both a
red-burning shale and a buff burning clay, and have the capability to blend
the raw materials in varying proportions, giving us a range of different
body colors. With our antiquated production equipment, we can duplicate the
forming and cutting processes.
We have the equipment to make a number of different textures that were popular years ago. We have the flexibility to make relatively small runs of different sizes and kinds of brick. We fire the brick in the same type of coal-fired kilns in use during that era.
We do not claim to be able to match every brick, but we
can duplicate a large range of the many different brick produced 100 years
