Locating Standard Size Brick


#1

I have been trying to locate standard size brick and it is a discontinued size. No one in the Dallas Fort Worth area carries it. Where can it be located and should the plans be changed to work with a current brick size.

Thanks for any help on this.

Standard size brick is one of the most common brick sizes - (8" x 3 5/8" x 2 1/4"), but you can also use Modular, Oversize Modular, Oversize Standard, Queensize, Engineer and Closure just to name a few.

When shopping for your edge brick, just make sure that the width (which will be the height when mortared vertically), is around 3.5" - 4". That’s all… nothing special.

So find a nice brick that you like (try to stay away from the Big Box stores as they have a very limited selection). In fact, visit your local Mom & Pop masonry supply as they typically have the best selections -
