Handmade Brick Range

Over the past 30 years many of the UK’s smaller and traditional brick makers producing handmade bricks have closed their factories. Other manufacturers have invested in modern production methods to produce higher volumes to satisfy the demand from the major UK house builders.

There is a shortages of niche bricks, such as Handmade Red Rubbers in the UK. This type of bricks have been widely used throughout the South of England for over 200 years.

In the South of England there is a large increase in restoration work taking place in conservation areas. Our new handmade range of bricks are perfect for older properties. As there is a shortage of quality reclaimed bricks, providing an accurate brick-match to existing brickwork can be challenging. With this range there is not a supply problem.

Buildscape has partnered with a number of manufacturers to produce a new range of handmade facing bricks which replicate the colours and textures of traditional brickmaking in the UK.

We can provide handmade bricks in both imperial and metric formats, which make them ideal for both new build and restoration work.

Each range consists of 3 core colours Red, Orange and a Dark Multi. Very often a bespoke blend of 2 or 3 colours are required to match the existing brickwork. With the individual colours held in stock, for smaller projects the bricks can be blended on site. For larger projects the bricks can be pre-blended at the factory.

A free site visit to access your requirements is available.
