Where to go for old bricks
My client has a house with some really cool looking bricks that he would like to find a match for. He has gone to evey brick supplier/maker in Denver, and came up empty.
Attached are some pics showing the strikings/details that make these bricks so unique.
I know this is a long shot, but any help is appreciated.
ya, that looks to be more salvage minded, but I'm thinking the housing they were used on is more recent like 50s to 70s and might not be that much available.
becauase of the random nature or the score lines on the face of those bricks I suspect they were hand cast, not a production brick at all.
Know of a stack of them in a backyard in Central IL that were salvaged from Lakeside package liquor, but the shipping would be a killer. Like somebody else said, from the 60's, EPA probably does not allow the process any longer.
OK. I was already wondering about the process to create those designs. But now I am really curious. What is the process?

Be betting on a patterned roller at the end of the clay extruder and before the slicer that cuts them to size.
They can't get your Goat if you don't tell them where it is hidden.
Robinson's on the south side on Dartmouth has advertised that they can match ANY brick. Have you tried them?
funny, at first glance I thought this thread said "where to go for gold bricks". LOL. Time go get glasses
You been working with too many goldbrickers?
