When purchasing Reclaimed Chicago Brick it is important as a consumer to know that not all reclaimed Chicago brick is of the same quality in appearance, state of restoration, color or texture.
The Chicago brick derives from the Demolition & Restoration process. Once restored and cleaned from old mortar it gets palletized and distributed by the supplier in Chicago.
The brick goes through a demolition and restoration process. Once palletized and ready it gets shipped out to its destinations directly from Chicago.
The brick suffers when it goes through the demolition process and some brick result more distorted and damaged than others.
The average consumer does not have the ability to select the quality of the brick when it is at the demolition, restoration and palletizing process.
A pallet of Chicago brick carries 495 - 510 bricks, it should cover between 110-115 square feet of installation, when being installed on driveways, walkways or pool decks.
When the quality of the brick and the state of restoration is of poor condition, the installation diminishes to 70-80 sq/ft per pallet.
What differentiates the Select Quality from the Average Reclaimed Brick is the fact that the Select Quality Brick is Hand Picked & Selected.
