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.
It is tempting for those who analyze consumer trends to arrange age groups into neat and tidy “cohorts.” They are given cute names like “Baby Boomers” “Generation X” or “Generation Y” (aka, “millennials''), and immediate conclusions are drawn. However, they are far from completely homogeneous. Of course, there are similar traits among these groups, especially regarding their preferences about their homes.
Why? Life stage.
In the past two years, it felt as if the world was going “virtual.” What began with Zoom meetings and myriad social media “influencers,” quickly spread to NFTs, cryptocurrencies, and ultimately home décor.
In a logical response (or perhaps backlash), interior designers, and the clients who pay them big bucks, are leaving the virtual realm and getting real again. Authenticity appears to be on the rise. Oh, and those trends that were red hot a year or two ago are now as cold as ashes.
Fort Worth, Texas – The Magjarevich twins Mike and Mark recently celebrated 35 years at Acme Brick Company’s San Felipe plant near Houston.
The brothers started at Acme Brick Company- San Felipe on Feb 24, 1987. Early on, the two displayed their knowledge and expertise in the everyday operations of brick making.
After more than 130 years of manufacturing one of the world’s most durable and iconic building products, Acme Brick knows a thing or two about what homeowners want around their houses. Of course, this includes brick, but over the past few years, Acme has also begun to offer customers some of the most innovative home improvement products in the world.
For several years, researchers who chronicle the trends in home construction and home improvement have noticed an increased interest in homeowners wanting additional, functional and private spaces to augment their main dwelling. These additions have been called colorful names such as “granny flats” or “backyard cottages,” legally appropriate descriptions such as “accessory dwelling units” (ADUs), and the most popular moniker, guest houses.
For architects, home builders, interior designers and homeowners, there can never be enough choices for interior and exterior walls. More colors? Yes, please. More textures? Of course. More freedom from maintenance? Absolutely!
Driving around new suburban developments, or even more mature neighborhoods, it becomes obvious that something different is going on here. Instead of the usual FOR SALE signs in the front yard of these homes, FOR RENT signs have taken their place. This increase in the number of single-family residences that are for rent instead of sale has occurred for a variety of reasons including the greatest disruption in the past 100 years, the COVID pandemic. After working, playing and spending most of the hours in a day at home, that space has taken on new importance.
There is something about achieving a place in the Guinness Book of World Records that strongly resonates among almost everyone. Runners long to be the fastest in the world and jumpers want to leap the highest. It’s human nature to want to be the “best” in a chosen field and have this feat listed in this iconic book of world records.
