Video: Do you know Old Mobile from Old Chicago?

Join exterior designer Catherine Arensberg on her quest to understand the two popular brick types.

Many homes in our area were built using one of two very popular brick types: Old Chicago brick or Old Mobile brick. You may think your home is built with one or the other, but are you sure? What are the differences?

I wasn’t sure of the answer myself, so I went to a friend who I knew would have answers for me: Law Stuart of Riley-Stuart Supply Company. I asked him every question my clients had for him, and the history and differences between the bricks were so fascinating, I had to capture it on camera. You’ll definitely want to hear and see the differences for yourself!
