  • Pricing firebrick

    I live in San Diego, CA and the local Brick store is selling Fire brick for $1.35. Is that a good price? I'm Planning on a 42" Pompeii Oven. I start digging today!

      I found prices in AZ ranging from $1.37 to $1.50. You've found a reasonable source.

          Yes, once you get out of fireplace land, firebricks become sort of a specialty item.

            I lucked out on my firebrick. My local suppler, within a couple miles, has them for $1.50/each. I found a place about 15 miles away that looks like you took a trip back in time. They were selling them (full low duty solids) for $.95 each. It was worth the extra travel to get them there. I'm in Western Pennsylvania.

              WOW!!! I get them here in South Carolina for between .70-.88 a piece. Maybe I should start exporting them to the west coast, huh

                I would be most of the firebrick is made on the east coast and the differeneces in cost is the shipping. I found them here in NY state fo $1.25.

                    Hey Nikki,

                    Where did you get your brick at? I have been doing some shopping around also and have not been able to get them for less than $2.

                      Marvel Masonry Supply has the best price, $1.37 each.

                      But Arizona Brick Source, while they have the highest price of $1.50, has hands-down the best customer service. They don't usually carry Heatstop 50 (nobody does around here) but they called around and found a supplier and are special ordering it for me. It's coming from one of their main suppliers, so they're not even charging me extra for shipping. Great service and one-stop shopping--that's worth the extra $26 it works out to for me.

                            The only fire bricks made in South Aus is $5 per brick and they can't or won't ell you their composition.
                            That's why I went secondhand at $1 each!

                              Northwestern Minnesota: 2.07 - full; $1.71 for splits.

                              I really thought that with the amound of fireplaces in this part of the country they would be much cheaper.
