The Creativity of Brick Matching: The Future of Brick Additions

This one-hour, on-demand program teaches participants how to make new construction match existing masonry.  Participants will observe a number of projects in which matching was attempted and discover why some failed and others succeeded. 

Topics include selecting the right brick, making use of the physical brick-blending process, selecting a masonry coloring process, and specifying matching masonry in architectural plans. The presenter is an expert on the subject matter with over 30 years of hands-on experience in the brick industry.
