121 Years of Unique Woodmoulded Brick

Architects from 48 states specify St. Joe Brick Works, Inc. for impressive projects....WHY?
In the world of brick, St. Joe Brick Works, Inc. is produced in very limited quantities, by being pressed into wood moulds resulting in instant antiquity.
Automation? We have heard about it, but we prefer our traditional method passed down for generations. the result is a product as traditional as the sidewalks of New Orleans, where our brick has been stepped on for a hundred years, to a look as futuristic as the sky line of Houston, Texas.
Nature is on our side as well, depositing just the right amount of minerals in the soil of southeastern Louisiana to give our brick its unique colors from smoky gray, to clear rose flecked with charred black kernels from the iron pyrite found naturally in our clays.
