What is a Jack Arch?

A jack arch is an assembly of specially shaped brick used as a decorative accent over windows and doors. They are made to order for each job and usually take several weeks to produce from the ordering date. Jack arches often use a keystone, a decorative triangular shape made from clay, concrete or limestone placed in the center of the jack arch.

Many other specially shaped decorative bricks are used on steps, window, water tables and door sills. Please see our Brick Finder or Shapes Guide, or contact your sales representative or local distributor for more information.
