Pre-Cast Brick Slips
PRE-CAST BRICK SLIPS
“What’s not to like about these “Old Cottage Blend” brick slips. The most important aspect is that they look and feel totally real, absolutely no way you could tell that they are simply slips. I also liked the fact that they are produced using recycled and sustainable materials.
They are very easy to handle and apply using standard tiling techniques. Adhesive, spacers and grout you’ll have to purchase separately”.
“Having had them up for a few days now and admiring their natural beauty, it became apparent that they are produced from some type of mould as I’ve noticed that a number of the brick slips have the same look, features, etc. I did expect this to be fair but as my project only needed approx 120 slips in total I thought that this may only be a couple of bricks or so, but I’ve noticed up to 4 of the same.
I’m nit picking somewhat here because you only really notice this if you look at it for some time, but it’s something to be aware of when you apply your slips if you’re doing it yourself? I had a builder do mine for me as I work full-time so he probably didn’t notice this at the time and its only apparent if two of the same are placed closely together. Apart from me no one else has noticed this and I’m certainly not going to highlight it to anyone who calls round”.
“The only other negative about my purchase was that the manufacturer failed to supply one of the 18 Linear/Reveal slips that were required but Neil at Higgins Cladding had some left over from a previous job which made up for the error.
Also, one of these Linear slips had also been broken during the manufacturing process and had been glued together to make good. They had made a reasonable job of the repair, but it was still somewhat apparent that it had cracked at some stage. Again, Neil made up for this one with an extra slip he had at the showroom.
Overall the whole process from initially order to project completion was totally stress free. I’m absolutely thrilled with the final look and would not hesitate to recommend these slips and Higgins Cladding for your own project. Seriously you won’t be disappointed”.
