Brick Buying Guide

With the largest supply and selection of antique reclaimed brick and stone anywhere, we know narrowing down your choices can be a daunting task. With that in mind, we have developed a brick buying guide to navigate you through the buying process. Here are the questions you need to ask yourself to make the perfect choice:


What Kind of Bricks Do I Need?

Paving Bricks
These bricks are used on the ground for driveways, walkways, patios, pool surrounds, etc. Antique Granite Cobblestones are also a great paving choice.

Building Bricks
These bricks are used for exterior walls, retaining walls and the like.


How Many Bricks Do I Need?

Paving Bricks
Plan on 5 bricks per square foot in a paving project.

Building Bricks
Plan on 7 per square foot for a wall. (The difference is due to a combination of the size of the bricks, the pattern used and the spacing or mortar thickness.)
