RUSTIC BRICK SLIPS
RUSTIC BRICK SLIPS
We get many customers calling and emailing us weekly for reclamation looking rustic brick slips. They either have an existing wall to match or just simply want a rustic brick slips internal or external feature wall in their home or business.
In our experience reclamation bricks are very expensive due to the process of sourcing the full-size bricks, the reclamation yards costs to clean the bricks down and cutting them into slips. Also, you need to rely on property demolitions for the actual brick you need to become available.
If only a reclamation brick will do for your project, then you can’t go wrong by contacting cawardenreclaim.co.uk who are one of the UK’s premier reclamation yards. Or you can source a new reclaimed brick slip. New reclaimed bricks are brand new bricks that are chemically treated to look old. They can also be tumbled to represent a brick that has been weathered throughout the years. They tend to cost less than a reclamation brick and are more readily available.
So if you can’t find a reclamation brick in the colour, size or type you want then give us a call on 01206 638885 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org attaching an image of the brick wall you want to replicate and then allow us to find the best match in a new reclaimed rustic brick slips range.
RUSTIC BRICK SLIPS – THE SMARTER CHOICE
We can thank one of our Preferred Installers, NWA Steele for the images in this blog post. The brick slips featured are our Reclamation Shire Blend new reclaimed brick slips. Once installed and pointed I think you agree you wouldn’t know that they weren’t an actual reclamation brick slip.
Don’t forget that the pointing mortar type and colour makes a massive different to the end look of your rustic brick slips feature wall. In our experience a lime pointing mortar gives a better finish to an older looking wall than the modern cement pointing mortars you can pick up at local builders’ merchants. For a costing on our lime mortars please Contact Us.
