Default cost of firebrick

I would be interested in knowing what people are paying for firebrick??? There is only one place near me that sells them, and I payed $2.70 per brick.

We got our firebrick for $.99 each. $2.70 sounds very high.

Prices vary a lot regionally. Something like $1.25 would be more typical. $0.99 is unusually good & $2.70 is high.

I paid $1.20 ea. Make sure they are not High or Medium duty brick. You want low duty brick (composition is different)

I believe I paid $1.35 each. But i was quoted prices as high as $2.75 for the same brick.

However, if you have a manufacturer nearby you may be Ble to buy seconds for $0.30 each.

A quick google maps search shows a half a dozen mason material suppliers in Eugene. I can't imagine there's only one place that sells firebrick. It also shows dozens in portland: It may pay you to go a little farther afield.

two words.....due diligence. Just like everything else, you have to call, (or drive) around, or check the internet if you are really looking to save. I think alot of new builders just don't know where to look and jump at the first place that stocks what they need (after all, this is new and out of there normal comfort zone)......you have brick yards, "construction suppliers", refractory suppliers, pottery/ceramic suppliers and even the "big box" retailers who could all possibly stock or order firebrick and mortar.....and the prices will run all over the board between them.
