Reclaimed Looking Bricks, new bricks made to look old.

So you want to construct a garden wall, garage, house or whatever structure you have in mind, and you would like to use a brick with an aged, reclaimed look. The obvious choice would be to shop around for a reclaimed brick - there are hundreds of recliamed yards throuought the Uk and i would imagine that most would stock a good selection of reclaimed bricks, a vast range of colours textures and styles.

Alternatively, have you considered using a new brick that has been manufactured to give the appearance of a reclaimed brick. A new, reclaimed looking brick. Why would you do this?

Using a new brick can eliminate the potential for finding poor quality reclaimed bricks often stacked in the middle of a pallet (where they cannot be first seen). They can offer a more consistant option so you know what you are dealing with. With the new manufactured bricks made to look old, you still have a choice of colour and size - made available in 65mm and 73mm.

The Old Lanacashire Mill Brick - a new brick manufactured with an aged appearance by way of a tumbled finish and antique looking colour variation.

The Derbyshire Antique Blend - a beautiful blend of colour including the white paint so often seen im many reclaimed bricks.
