We sat down with Stan McCarthy, Senior Vice President of Sales at Acme Brick, in Fort Worth, Texas to ask him some questions about various aspects of the brick business. We talk about the aspects of brick sales, the benefits of building with brick, the BIA and other advocate groups, and city building legislation, zoning and ordinances.
We hear about clay and shell brick versus concrete brick, clay pavers versus concrete pavers, solar reflective index (SRI), efflorescence, and other kinds of unwanted brick stains like scum and acid burn. We also talk about Acme Brick, and CEO and Brickman's Hall of Fame Inductee Dennis Knautz.
