The price of firebrick varies depending mostly on the cost of freight. Generally it's around three or four dollars per brick in small quantities - much less if a dealer brings it in on full truckloads. Let us know what you need and we will try to get you the best source and price - generally through one of our dealers.

Medium and super duty firebrick
High quality medium and super duty (2,700 to 3,100 deg.F) firebrick that meets the ASTM C27 standard is best for oven floors, masonry heaters and kilns. Shipped by the pallet or picked up regionally.

Firebrick Color
Firebrick is generally buff or ivory color because that's what color fireclay is. Some manufacturers have found ways to manufacture firebrick in other colors. Staining firebrick is a cost-effective way to get the color you want especially if the fireplace is already built. Superior Clay can glaze any firebrick about any color.

Firebrick is available in lots of sizes but mostly standard 9"x4.5"x2.5" and "splits" 9"x4.5"x1.25". Buidling codes required firebrick used in a firebox to be at least 2" thick.
