How Do I Fix Chipped Brick?

In order to achieve our signature distressed aesthetic, we chip a percentage of all brick during manufacturing.

Being that our brick is exteriorly decorated, the chipping during manufacturing exposes the bricks base color.

If this is something that is not to the liking of the customer, a simple remedy can be implemented during the bricklaying process.

How Do I Achieve A White Mortar Joint?

In order to achieve a vibrant white mortar joint, use the following technique:

Use the lightest colored masonry sand available in your region.

Use white masonry cement which is available in your region

For every sack of white masonry cement, add 1 shovel of masonry lime to the mix.

Brick Maintenance

How Do I Remove Yellow Staining?

Should I Seal My Brick?

If your brick will be installed in a location where it is prone to staining, such as a kitchen backsplash, we highly encourage sealing your brick.


We recommend the use of PROSOCO Siloxane WB Concentrate, with a 9:1 Dilution Ratio.


It is important to note that sealers have the ability to change the tonality of brick post application.


Because of this, it's recommended that testing be done in discreet sections prior to sealing an entire wall.

How Do I Clean My Brick?

When cleaning your brick, never use high pressure wash equipment, acid cleaners, wire brushes, or any other abrasive materials.

Doing so will tarnish the face of your brick, as well as void our Limited Warranty.
