Default Firebrick dealer in Northern California Bay Area

Hello. New to the forum. Can anyone recommend someone who will sell firebrick retail in the Bay Area, CA? This info will help whether to make the brick oven or go with buying a precast. Thanks, Stella

The Bay area is a big place. Just call the nearest masonry dealer and go from there. I know there is a manufacturer in Sacramento.

Northern CA Bay Area firebrick
So I have found firebrick for sale at Sugar City, Pinole, CA and a Larms in Oakland, CA
Having just installed a Forno Brava Casa I'm actually going to try to build a brick oven now. Different location of course.
Does anyone know where I can get fire clay to mix my own mortar in the bay area? I can go as far south as San Jose, and as wide as Concord, even Sonoma and of course San Francisco. (Nice to have friends spread out)
Thanks

Hey Stellawood,
If you are interested, you can swing by the showroom in Windsor and pick up Refmix. You won't have any shipping (and as a happy customer we can cut you a deal!).
Let me know what you think.
James

Hi Stellawood,
I learned while building my oven that fire clay is commonly added to mortar by masons to make the mortar creamier. I think they call it "mortar clay" or "mason's clay" or something like that. Any masonary supply place should have it.

Stella, Dusty is right fireclay is pretty common at masonary supply dealers. I mixed my own with fireclay and it worked perfect. You should be able to find it pretty close to home.
