SHIPPING ! please read this about SHIPPING !
These brick are heavy..... the minimum shipping is going to start at $220.00 plus / minus. This means for 1-order (200 pcs)the shipping can be more than the brick. shipping is based on weight so the more brick you purchase the weight goes up. Large orders benefit on the shipping cost. I add the shipping cost to your invoice AFTER you make a purchase then I send you the finial invoice to pay. I hope this eliminates the 100's of questions "how much is shipping"

- Old South Blend may come from many buildings that were constructed during the period in which the bricks were produced such as Clay Brick and sometimes used concretebrick.These brick salvaged from warehouses and industrial structures are referred to as Dallas Common" because they came from common buildings. Homes, churches, schools and private structures may also be sources for some Dallas Used brick. We then take new larger clay brick slurry or decorate them making them appear to be used. We then hand blend these brick together getting a great blend. The new brick are also larger than the used brick for two reasons. The layup factor now is greater using less brick and saving the customer money and it creates even a more rustic look with two sizes. This Blend had been very successful for us for many years. We have hundreds of million dollar homes in the Dallas Ft. Worth area with this brick on them.
When you open your boxes you will most likely find a few brick broken in ½ from shipping. This is common. We add extra brick to accommodate the broken brick. The broken brick are still useable. When cuts are needed only cut the broken pieces when possible. These thin brick were hand cut from full size brick.
Installation of your Thin Brick
Google in Video "Installing Thin Brick" you will find many many great tips. You must wash the cut side of the brick prior to get the brick dust removed from the back side so it will adhere properly. On OLD SOUTH BLEND some white slurry/decoration will come off what comes off and what stays on is the perfect look. Do not scrub the coating off the face of the brick. In fact many customers smear more mortar on the face during installation and leave it giving you an old used weathered appearance.
Tip: For interior application a simpler idea is using an adhesive like liquid nails with trowel marks let it dry to a sticky tacky state then push the brick on.
Another tip: If the brick want to slide down you can use small nails to hold the brick in place. MIX BRICK FROM SEVERAL BOXES AT A TIME…..
When grouting between the brick once dried in place. Use masonry mix with a grout bag or (tip) use sanded tile mortar mix in a box already mixed from Home depot or Lowes.
You can go over existing brick just glue on top of the existing. We also have corner and thin stone.
Each brick you handle is special unique and has lots of character. The Used Brick in this blend has been around for close to 100 years and has been through a journey we cannot imagine. You have saved it from the land field!
