Bricks and Blocks
One of the key factors in the appearance of the building will be defined by the choice of bricks, or other material to be used in the external construction of the walls. Internally the build is normally accomplished with the use of thermal or other blocks.
The choice is very wide with many different colours and textures available from a host of brick producers. Buildbase stocks and services the ranges of virtually every serious producer, both of machine made and handmade special bricks, and our depots are well equipped to help you with your selections and choices.
The Buildbase brick library is available so that you can see the effects of different types of brick and this, used in conjunction with the brick references that are available on many producer's websites, will help you to make the right choices. It is important to actually see samples of the bricks you will use to ensure the colour and texture are exactly what you want - remember that pictures in catalogues, or on web sites, may not necessarily be accurate for colour rendition.
Buildbase also offers a range of special brick shapes and fittings to make complex brickwork easier. Please enquire in branch for details and asssistance. Click image on left for PDF leaflet.
