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.
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 the past 50 years, the economics of home construction has changed dramatically. When vinyl siding and synthetic insulation materials were introduced in the 1960s as a substitute for traditional brick and wood, tract homebuilders found their costs were reduced dramatically. In recent years, it is estimated by trade associations that homes wrapped in vinyl siding and synthetic insulation are purchased by 33 percent of new home buyers.
One of the hottest topics in the construction industry today is “green buildings.” This is a catch-all phrase that describes construction materials and building techniques which are environmentally friendly. These buildings require less energy to heat and cool and save their owners thousands of dollars over the life of the building. They can withstand the ravages of elements for generations and they are most likely constructed of materials that come from the earth.

June 8, 2016 - A new brick product from Acme Brick Company has a face that is one inch taller than the company’s King Size brick that is typically used on homes. Estate size brick is 3 5/8” tall by 9 5/8” wide contrasted to King Size which is 2 5/8” by 9 5/8”. This increased dimension makes Estate Brick more efficient to manufacture, ship and install.
This new brick lays up like modular brick and should match door and window heights without the need to cut brick. When laid in a one-third bond, Estate brick turns corners easily.
