Contractor Troxler and Sons is still seeking to resolve issues involving the brick used for serpentine wall repairs. LAOHR recommended Troxler obtain samples of Carolina Brick Company’s hand-cut brick product.

Carolina recommended Troxler contact a smaller local distributor that might have a lower minimum.
