Stockyards Brick reclaims vintage brick and other materials from structures scheduled for demolition throughout the Midwest. We are able to salvage brick, stone, granite and limestone along with Vintage lumber and other architectural artifacts. From procurement of a building to deconstruction to regeneration of materials, we go to great lengths to ensure that the “bones” of these beautiful old buildings have an extended life as today's design elements.

Following the great Chicago fire of 1871, which destroyed over three miles of the city, reconstruction efforts began promptly and efficiently. Architects and city leaders laid the foundation for the “great rebuilding” and regulations required new construction to be manufactured primarily of brick or stone. At Stockyards Brick, many of our vintage brick have been extracted from that rebirth. We also reclaim brick from other major Midwestern cities. The antique kilns used in the manufacture of these old brick, combined with the diversity of clay deposits found in the earth years ago, allowed for the spectacular variation of color and texture in these historic building materials.

Pursuant to a building being razed, most of its components are crushed and intended for the landfill. The repurposing of these extraordinary materials reduces waste and becomes environmentally responsible. We at Stockyards Brick have made this our mission…it’s the natural thing to do!
