Product samples

Further visualization of each Palmetto Brick is available through a representative brick sample.

Although every effort is made to keep colors and blends as true as possible, we can't guarantee that the color and/or texture of the manufactured product will match the samples exactly.

For best results, order only from recent samples. Variation occurs in each production run from changes in raw materials and processes. If your color choice is critical, set up panels after brick are delivered and before use.

Protecting your brick product

Here are a few tips to minimize post-installation cleaning.

  • Protect brick on-site from mud by storing on plastic or straw.
  • Cover walls at the end of each day's work.
  • Protect brickwork at the base of the wall by spreading straw, plastic or sawdust on the ground.
  • Palmetto Brick does not recommend the use of muriatic acid on light colors, pressure washing or sandblasting on any color to clean brick masonry.
