Can any brick be reproduced?
We have replicated most types including Roman size, Ontario size, dry-pressed, wood-mold, extruded, “sun-baked”, clinkers/bloats and glazed brick.
What is the lead time to get a sample match?
Normally 4-5 weeks.
What is needed to have a sample prepared?
We require at least 5 bricks representative of the lot and photos of a 3' x 3' to 5' x 5' area of the wall.
Originals should be as clean as you want reproductions to be. We match dirt!
What are the anticipated costs of sample?
We charge a fee of $200.00 to defer lab and shipping costs or for developing glazes up to $400.
What are the anticipated costs of production brick?
We charge $55.00/ square ft. and up, with price breaks for larger quantities.
Do your bricks comply to ASTM standards?
We use the same clays and similar firing schedules as the big manufactures, so we can infer similar properties.
StoneArt, Inc. does not test samples nor the originals sent to us, but customer is welcome to do so.
