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.
