Why Is Genuine Clay Brick the Most Sustainable, Green Building Material Made?

While many know that brick is a beautiful, durable material that lasts for a very long time, some may be unaware of just how advanced the brick industry is with respect green-building design and sustainability. For example, it takes almost 70% less energy to make brick today than it did in 1970. More than 80% of brick kilns are fired with natural gas, and many facilities use fuels from bio-based materials from other applications, such as methane gas and sawdust. Brick is the first masonry material that can be certified for environmental claims from a third-party source

Highly recommend the Richmond location and working directly with Taylor. She was extremely helpful and helped me reuse my existing material to save on costs. She selected new material that complimented the stone I had. Not only was the color and texture taken into account, but she also pointed out other considerations in the selection process that I would not have thought of. She pulled together samples so I could visually see her recommendations. Definitely ask for Taylor! You won’t be disappointed!

Hi Brian, just a quick note to Thank you and Jennifer Jollie for helping us locate the three tons of crush brick which was nowhere to be found in Richmond or maybe all of Virginia. It was delivered by Tony who can place a pallet on a dime. Saturday I wheel barrowed the last ton to our back yard and it looks great! Bottom line we are very impressed with Shade & Wise and are happy we located you folks.

Received excellent customer service from both Taylor and Tyler. I’m not a contractor buying in huge quantity but rather just a DIY home owner. Tyler went out of his way to make sure I had everything I needed and even made sure I was able to load the materials without messing up my jeep. 10/10 will recommend this business to others.
