Adobe and Masonry Products

Adobe is the Spanish word that translates “mud bricks.” These mud bricks are in reality sun-dried mixtures of heavy clay and straw, and are used predominantly in arid regions. Although open for debate, the true origin of adobe is believed to date back some 8,000 years, and centered in the Middle East where adobe was the primary choice of construction material due to the abundance of earth compared to the scarcity of other building materials such as lumber and rock. Although the indigenous population of the American Southwest had been using mud as mortar and surface treatments for other construction methods for centuries, the practice of using forms to create adobe bricks for use in construction of homes and missions began with the arrival of the first Spanish settlers to the region. It is believed that the Native American Indians of the Southwest quickly adopted this “new” technology for use in constructing adobe pueblos- many of which survive to this day.

 

Grand River Supply offers many accessory products for both modern and historic adobe style homes whether they were originally built using true adobe bricks, or other construction methods and materials such as modern frame and stucco.
