“MY DESIGNS” TIP 👆🎨🏠

It’s true that 25% OF WHAT YOU SEE in a brick wall IS MORTAR. Therefore, it’s an important element to consider when selecting your brick color and making those final decisions to your home’s design.

Going from light to dark, here’s an EXAMPLE using our NEW APP of how mortar selection impacts the appearance of the same brick color, “Nottingham Tudor.”

As we continue to celebrate our 90th YEAR ANNIVERSARY! 🙌🎉🎆, here's another DID YOU KNOW 🤔 about our company...

By 1930, General Shale had acquired six brick companies in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. Following World War II, General Shale built a block plant in Kingsport, Tennessee, and its first tunnel kiln, which was a big contribution to the company’s success.

As you might know from a previous post, this is our 90th YEAR ANNIVERSARY! 🙌🎉🎆 To celebrate, we thought it'd be fun to share some quick facts about our road to 90!

DID YOU KNOW...🤔

General Shale was formed in 1928 when the "Kingsport Brick" Corporation merged with the "Johnson City Shale Brick" Corporation. At the time, we had an annual production capacity of 55 million bricks.

It’s officially Spring and an exciting time for those looking to buy or build a new home. 🌤️🌱🏡 Our goal is to always help you make a great investment – building A HOME THAT HOLDS VALUE versus one that eats away at your time and wallet!

Since we're asked quite often, we thought it would be helpful to COMPARE the pros and cons of BRICK to another common exterior material. Namely, FIBER CEMENT siding.

Read about not only the features and benefits of both but also sq.ft. cost comparisons in our NEW BLOG POST here 👉 https://blog.generalshale.com/the-pros-and-cons-of-brick-vs-fiber-cement-siding/

The saying goes that a company is only as good as its employees. If that’s true, we have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.

Employees at our Home Office in Johnson City, TN went all out in participation of The Salvation Army USA “Angel Tree” Program!

For those unfamiliar, the program provides new clothing or toys for children of needy families through the support of donors. Angel Trees are decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age, and gender of a child in need of presents. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags. This year our tree had up to 60 name tags!

As you can see, our employees didn’t disappoint!
