What Does Our Brick Centre Offer?

What is a brick?

In simple terms a brick is a type of block composed of dried clay, which is used to build walls, pavements and for other construction purposes. In many construction projects, bricks are mounted together by using mortar.

There are many kinds and types of bricks, which include facing, reclaimed and engineering bricks. Our Brick Centre stocks an extensive range of facing bricks, which are supplied by well-known manufactures including Ibstock, Winerberger, Forterra, Vandersanden and many more popular brands.

Our Facing Bricks Offering

Facing bricks have striking aesthetics and this makes them the most popular type of brick for external walls in the commercial and domestic property market. Generally, in areas where surfaces are exposed, facing bricks become very important due to their appearance.

Not only do they look beautiful, facing bricks have excellent water absorption and lower density properties, which are ideal for external housing walls, especially in the UK, where such durable brick properties (water resistance) are great for our cold winter months.
