reclaimed bricks

A long standing relationship with a local builder has seen General Reclaimed Bricks supply a residential development in London's SW10 with over 16,000 reclaimed bricks. The renovation in Chelsea saw large rear extensions on two town houses to make way for further living space.

Toby Hunt, contract manager on the development site , commented, " General Reclaimed bricks made it easy for us by ensuring; deliveries were on time and all bricks supplied were of a high quality.

General Reclaimed Bricks take pride in supplying satisfied customers with reclaimed bricks throughout Surrey, London and the South East.

Reclaimed bricks are bricks that are rescued from old buildings and cleaned up.

Their edges are typically worn and irregular and they may have remnants of mortar due to their original use.

Good quality reclaimed bricks only require 2 workable sides, 1 bond and 1 stretch.

Many will have fine creases, characteristic folds and variations in colour that typify old brickwork. It is this combination, which many feel gives "Reclaims" a charm and character all of their own.

We also offer a brick matching service where we do our upmost to find the correct style for you.
