Capture to Inspire 2014 Winners!

Congratulations to our three distributors that placed in our first annual Capture to Inspire Photo Contest! Over six months ago we opened up the contest to our distributors across the country to send in images of Summit Brick projects through out the nation that they thought inspired architectural elegance. We received an abundance of photos from many of our valued distributors. From interiors to large commercial jobs, every entry was impressive.
