Watsontown Brick Co. has introduced a new tumbled look for its Luzerne Paver. Using a combination of native red Pennsylvania shale and imported yellow clay, the regular Luzerne Paver is tumbled with black and white paint to achieve the desired distressed and rustic appearance, with the look of used brick. Sized at 2.25 x 3.75 x 7.5 inches, this has been a popular style and color in the New York market so far. The photo illustrates a recent installation at a residence in Long Island, N.Y.
Dryvit Systems, Inc., the leading manufacturer of exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) in North America, has launched a breakthrough new brick product that can dramatically increase brick installation productivity for masons and provide new options for architects, contractors, and building owners who wish to include brick as part of a new or renovated building’s exterior cladding.
