Product Feature: Heritage Collection

AB Original/Ivory

Our Heritage Brick Collection is similar to our Handcrafted collection due to its size. Our Heritage Brick collection is easily mistaken for the trending look of true reclaimed brick. 

What is a reclaimed brick? 

Reclaimed brick is brick that has been already used and recycled for another purpose. Reclaimed bricks are typically worn and might have old mortar on them. They might be irregular in shape and size. Sometimes that look works, but the downside to truly reclaimed brick is that there is a lack of availability. 

Reclaimed bricks are divided into two categories: handmade and machine-made. Reclaimed bricks can come from old mills, stately homes, and pavements. Brick can even be reclaimed from centuries ago!

Why do people want reclaimed brick?

Reclaimed handmade bricks are typically more expensive than older bricks. Older bricks usually have more character to their look, such as a rough texture. A reclaimed brick weighs less and is softer than machine-made bricks.

While the look and texture of reclaimed brick have steadily increased in popularity over the years, many homebuilders have chosen not to use reclaimed brick because of its weak structural integrity, exorbitant cost, and lack of availability. 

Does Cherokee Brick have reclaimed brick?

Fortunately, Cherokee Brick has paired the authentic look of handmade brick with an innovative manufacturing process to create this distinctive collection. Unlike truly reclaimed brick, our brick meets all current ASTM standards, comes in a variety of custom colors and styles, and will return your initial investment to you (and then some!) should you decide to sell your brick home. Our Heritage Brick Collection is unique in that you get a sense of both new and old when you choose this particular style.
