Since its founding in 1891, Acme Brick has continually advanced the art and science of brickmaking, to make brick an affordable, sustainable, enduring, and beautiful choice for America's homeowners, builders, contractors, institutions, and businesses.
In ways large and small, Acme Brick associates work hard to make brick a sustainable, high-performance building material that's as good for the environment as it is for the people who build with it.
Acme Brick Company makes brick for every type of home and for every budget, from starter homes to mansions.
All Acme Brick are manufactured to exceed the standards of applicable building codes, and all residential brick made by Acme are backed with a 100 Year Limited Guarantee.
The brick house is an American tradition hundreds of years old. Acme Brick Company and its builder partners work every day to honor and extend that tradition:
From the beginning, commercial buildings and their architects have been a key element of Acme Brick Company's success.
If remodeling or building projects are on the drawing board for the future, this is a good time to put the new tools found on the Acme Brick website to work. With many new products being added to the company’s offerings over the past few months, consumers and building tradesmen needed a convenient way to access the specifications, colors, styles of these products.
It has been well documented that over the past few years, homeowners have decided to stay in their current residence for longer than they used to. Because the ages, lifestyles and even the number of people (with multiple generations) living under the same roof can change over time, many homeowners have begun to update or renovate their homes to keep them functional.
There is no part of a home or commercial building that receives more wear and tear than the floor. While it is the foundation of a room’s design, it must also be durable enough to withstand constant foot traffic, exposure to water, pets and the day-to-day-play of young children.
Fortunately, advances in technology in the form of luxury vinyl products have come to the floor and demand is going through the ceiling!
Nature’s color palette is a wonder to behold and this has never been truer than with brick. The finished colors of the clay - mined from the ground and then fired in kilns to become brick - have delighted builders and home designers for centuries. Over its 128 years of manufacturing these rich hued building units, Acme Brick has consistently added new colors to this most natural construction material - brick.
The role of a fireplace in the home has evolved from being the sole source of heat for warmth and cooking, to the focal design piece that adds a special feeling of unparalleled comfort. After thousands of years in use, fireplaces are still as popular and evolving in home design and function.
Many homeowners are deciding that less is more when it comes to the size of their residence. This trend is being driven by demographic changes in homeownership and has led to a rise in the demand for “jewel box” homes.
The explosion of online shopping has made life easier for people who don’t like to go out to shop! This has led to a dramatic increase in home deliveries, especially around the holidays such as Christmas. According to this report, the U.S. Postal Service will deliver more than 28 million packages per day between December 16 - 21, nearly 40% more than the remainder of the year.
With a new year and decade just around the corner, it’s time for the annual gaze into the Acme Brick home design crystal ball.
