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.
In 1966, the groundskeepers of the one-year old Houston Astrodome - known at the time as “The Eighth Wonder of the World” - were having difficulty getting grass to grow in the domed stadium. They made a decision that would spawn an entire industry: installing artificial turf, which became known as “AstroTurf.” Sports fields would never be the same again.
For centuries, buildings constructed of brick have withstood the ravages of hurricanes, tornadoes, high winds, hail and punishing rain. When used in conjunction with modern building codes, brick homes can remain standing when others on the same block might be destroyed. Since 1891, Acme Brick has been manufacturing these almost indestructible building blocks!
Just like brick construction, wrought iron has a colorful history dating back to the dawn of civilization. Because of their timeless beauty and virtual indestructibility, both of these materials have been important structural and design elements of homes since ancient times. They also look great when they are used together in one structure.
Consumer surveys note that today’s homeowners crave authenticity in the places where they live. While synthetic materials such as stucco or siding are sometimes cheaper building products, brick has always passed the test of time and proven to be a better investment. In fact, centuries of homeowners have surrounded the most important parts of their lives - family and priceless personal possessions - with the permanence and strength of brick.
