Made from an abundant natural material, clay bricks bring buildings to life with a wonderful mixture of subtle tones and textures. On versatility and pure aesthetics, few rivals come even close. As we have been building with brick for thousands of years, its technology is well understood: how to use it to keep a building dry, what kinds of bricks to use in different environments in order to cope with expansion and contraction, what physical and chemical effect different mortars can have on brickwork. At Greengates Builders Merchants we stock an extensive range of bricks and blocks so if you are thinking of building that long awaited for extension then come and have a look at our wide range of bricks.
There is huge and varied range of bricks produced in the UK alone, from handmade bricks and specials to extruded and stock bricks. Bricks blend easily and naturally with their environment and complement other building materials and furthermore, brickwork can be adapted as a building changes use.
Brick is one of the most successful building materials ever devised. On aesthetics and price it is hard to beat and moreover it is the most mellow, most sustainable of building materials.
Bricks have long been a favourite building material. It’s not only beautiful to look at, but it also has excellent sustainability credentials and it’s hard to beat on price and is made from an abundant natural material.
The maintenance of brick is minimal: repointing may be necessary after 70yrs, but in contrast to other materials, brick will not rot, rust, erode or decay yet improves with age. Wind, rain and snow will not damage it. Indeed weather merely mellows it. So as brick ages its looks improve and when the time comes to knock it down it can be crushed and recycled on site.
