mixing old and new brick


I have a 1100 sq ft porch that goes around the house. The concrete guys made a mistake where some column pedastyls were supposed to be and I had to cut out some concrete. So now I have to cover my porch in something to cover up the ugly concrete where it is cutout.

My house was going to be the cherokee st louis tumbled new brick. but they dont make a paver to put on my porch. So I was wondering about getting the reclaimed old st louis and slicing it into pavers for the porch? This will be expensive I know but I dont know what else to do. A tile would cost me almost as much I think and will not look as nice. I just hope the old brick doesn't look funny with the new brick. Just wanted to see if anyone saw something wrong with the plan?

Brick guy quoted me $7000 to do the 1100 sq ft porch. The brick is like $690 per thousand I think. Does that sound reasonable?

mixing old and new brick


1100x4.5=4950
4950/1000=4.95x690.00=$3415.50/2=$1707.75+$2475.00=$4182.75

So the brick cost is $4182.75 and they should match well.
