Historical Glossary: Insul-Brick Siding

Insul-Brick Siding was manufactured in Winnipeg by the Building Products Limited, from the late 1930s to the early 1960s. The touted benefits of the material was that it looked superficially like real brick, required no painting or other maintenance, and provided some insulation value to exterior building walls on which it was installed. It was durable and could last in some cases for over 60 years and was available in red, brown or grey colours with white or black “mortar” between bricks.
