Replacement Of Brick W/ A Gray Glaze/morter Spread On Face Of It


I dont come across bricks of this nature very often, what are the terms I should be using in contacting brick yards/masons for replacement? I'll be attempting to re-use as many of the bricks as possible, then finding the next best thing for the rest.

Is the gray a "glazing"? I cant believe I'll find exact bricks, so color matching the underlying brick (which is a peach-ish/orange in "king" size 9 5/8 long), then re-creating the glaze I'd assume is best approach.

Thanks.

If you have access to the back side of numerous brick,you may get lucky and find a company name stamped on the back. If not,good luck.

Looks like a cheap (garbage) brick to me. From the pictures it does not look like they have the name of the manufacturer on the back like some do

Best bet is to take a couple to the brick yard and see what they have available

Call your local brick company, and have them send out their salesman. He will be able to identify the brick for you.

Don't call your local brickyard, you can't match brick on the phone or very well even with photos and they probably won't send a salesman to match a couple hundred (or thousand) brick. Take some to the brickyard. That looks like a dipped brick, find one that has the same basic color and then make a slurry with Portland, lime and water and dip them.
