It is also known as salvaged, reclaimed, antique, recovered, historic, and old brick. In essence, it is brick obtained from dismantled or demolished buildings which stood 40 to 250 years in the New York area. Each lot, by nature, is limited, and they are often gathered from particular buildings of historical significance. The appearance is slightly irregular, hand-molded, and worn-looking producing the artisan-installed brickwork look. Esthetically this product delivers warmth and a unique feel but it is important to remember that it does not meet today’s ASTM standards. Bricks are fragile, some are cracked and half and/or partial pieces or are found in boxes. We recommend purchasing approximately 10% over the required quantities.

A frog is an indentation in a face of a brick, frequently with the manufacturer’s stamp embossed into it. The customers opinion is divided in regards to stamps. Some desire it, and others do not. Brick it has no control over the design, depth or amount of stamped bricks in the load. Your order might contain up to 50% of stamped thin brick slabs in it.

Bricks are fragile, some are cracked and half and/or partial pieces or are found in boxes. We recommend purchasing approximately 10% (+/-) over the required quantities and using the common bond pattern in order to minimize waste. This specific brick is not manufactured as a thin veneer, and it is cut into thin brick slabs using masonry wet saws. Due to that process, some moisture might be present. Therefore, it is always cut to a specific order, shipped immediately, and is intended to be unpackaged and installed by the customer asap, allowing proper and natural exposure to the environment.
