Historic Ontario Size Bricks

With all the various sizes of brick currently being used in the Ontario market, it has become very difficult for architects, designers and masonry restoration specialists to source the right bricks for their projects. There are only two local manufacturers who make Ontario size brick 8-3/8" x 2-1/2"(2-3/8") x 4" and their selection is constrained to a dozen different colours and textures. This leads to architects and contractors spending days in a vain attempt to match an existing brick for an addition or a retrofit project.

We are pleased to announce that we have available in Ontario size a selection of over 350 different bricks, making available virtually every texture and colour that has ever been made. These bricks are manufactured to the highest standard by Ibstock Brick, the largest brick manufacturer in the United Kingdom . These can be viewed by using our brick selected by selecting the "Brick Selector" tab on this page.

In addition we have available all of the special shapes that were particularly used on older more historic buildings such as squints and plinith bricks in the "Special Shapes and Fittings" Tab. If you have a special custom shape that you need, we can make it for you, even if you only require 20 or less pieces.

Moulded John Price Style Brick in Ontario Size

We carry a full line of John Price style Ontario size moulded brick. These are the bricks that figure so prominently in restoration projects in the older areas of Toronto, other downtown urban centres and rural Ontario. To view a selection of the six main colors that we carry select the tab for "Moulded Style JP". We have had these bricks tested and they satisfy all of the requirements of CSA as well as the National and Ontario Building Codes (Tab "Test Results")

Can't Find the Right Colour?

If the brick that we supply you is not the right colour due to ageing or unavailability of the right colour, our sister company PermaTint Limited (http://www.permatint.com/home.html) can stain the brick to produce in most cases an almost perfect match to the original brick. Please select the "Custom Colours" Tab for more information.

As per the National and Ontario Building codes, bricks that are being used for exterior construction must pass the testing as laid out in Canadian Safety Standard A82-1 (CSA A82-1). Included here are the test results demonstrating that our bricks meet these standards and thus can be classified as Grade SW (Severe Weather)

Poor Masonry Repairs
If a repair has been completed and it stands out, they can tint the area to blend with the original.

New masonry to maintain heritage integrity.
