In 1947 Taft Vordenbaum, Sr. founded Brickstone International in San Antonio. Brickstone is a patented masonry siding that can achieve the look of almost any stone or brick. In 1959 Mr. Vordenbaum’s son in law, David Bomba, joined the business, and in 1961 opened Brickstone of South Texas in Corpus Christi. Throughout the 60’s and 70’s Mr. Bomba installed Brickstone on over 1000 homes in the Coastal Bend. In 1970, category 5 hurricane Ceila struck Corpus Christi. In the aftermath, over 5000 brick homes were damaged or destroyed. Brickstone was the only siding product that did not incur a single loss. This distinction created our slogan throughout the 70’s and 80’s… “Ceila Tested & Proven!”
In 2002, Martin Bomba and his wife, Debbie, purchased the business from his father David. And, in 2010, Martin and Debbie purchased Brickstone International from Martin’s Uncle’s Taft Vordenbaum, Jr. and Jack Harris and Aunt Marguerite Harris.
Today, Martin & Debbie Bomba continue the Brickstone legacy. For over 60 years and three generations, Brickstone is still family owned and operated and Brickstone is still the absolute best siding product you can have installed on your home.
