Default Re: firebricks in south Florida

Yeah, 67 cents was a great price, BUT.....precision made, they were not. All dimensions were a little off, no two bricks were the same size. instead of being 2 1/2" x 4" x 9", there were 2 1/4" (roughly) x 3 7/8" (roughly) x 8 3/4" (roughly). Since my plan was to cut everything to fit (not nearly as precise as the Les method) it didn't matter much. I believe they came from Carolina Bricks and are sold here as "fireplace" bricks.

I'm very curious about the cost of the tapered bricks down your way, the ones I saw were very well made and uniform - would have looked great. I just couldn't stomach the cost.
Good luck, keep us posted on your progress.

Bob,

They look great. Arch one appears not to be tapered and #2 appears to have an 8 degree taper. What is the difference between arch #2 and the wedge.
RT has a point, we need to see the cost per brick and if shipping costs are involved.
RT, where did you get your bricks because we're getting burned (no pun intended) at double the price.

Tony, it has been 3 yrs since my build so I can't say if they still have them or for what price. Here is the info:

Cement Products & Supply
516 W. Main St.
Lakeland, FL 33815
Phone: 863-686-5141

They also had Heatstop 50 mortar at $57 per bag, again, that was 3 yrs ago.
