Find Brick Professionals

Genuine clay brick is typically sold by manufacturers or specialized distributors – many of whom go through BIA’s specialized training. Brick comes in many different shapes and colors, and can be used in just about any application you can think of. Brick isn’t sold at a typical big box store. Not surprisingly, there are many types of companies and organizations that depend on our industry.

Find Your Brick Resource

BIA members manufacture brick, distribute clay brick, or provide products and services to the industry. Many manufacturers and distributors have more than one location,and  you can find the one closest to you through BIA’s database.

Brick Sculptors

BIA’s members have compiled a list of brick sculptors who literally transform these modular units into striking works of art. You may have seen some of them in your hometown, and they range from relief murals, free-standing sculptures for downtown uses and art that brick enthusiasts display in their house.

Certified Brick Specialists
