Reclaimed solid bricks are the oldest bricks available today. These antique brick – made from the very soil that the old mills were built upon – comprised the walls of the original structure; hence, they reflect the land from whence they came. As a result, reclaimed “solids” tend to be oversized and filled with color variations and other time-worn marks.
The process of reclaiming these antique treasures is difficult and tedious. We begin by carefully toppling existing walls and then – by hand – we clean the brick of the original mortar and palletize them. They then arrive to you ready to install – often with the occasional fingerprint from the person who helped make the bricks or a painted face from the original structure. The painted face can be turned in if you prefer to not have that shown on your structure – though most people love how it helps tell the reclaimed story of their antique brick.
