We often get asked does brick cladding look realistic.
The answer is a definite YES, using real brick cladding tiles provides a real brick finish (just a thinner skin than full bricks ) Brick slips can make a huge difference to the Kerb appeal of any home take a look at some of our recent projects. Brick Cladding can provide a very attractive finish. Using real brick slips gives a genuine authentic finish to any walls, both internal and external.
A properly fitted and pointed brick cladding job can last the lifetime of the building. For a modern look, we can specify metric brick slips or for a more traditional historic look we can source handmade style brick slips, keeping tradition in mind we often clad the wall with one of the many solid wall bonds used before the advent of cavity wall build. This could be a flemish or garden wall pattern when pointed with lime will look like it has been built for years
Brick cladding is a great way to give your home a makeover.
Brick slips can also be used as a finish over insulated boards (providing they are frost-resistant and are bonded over suitable mesh).
They can also be incorporated into render systems and used as features such as castlework, headers above windows or quoins.

Ibstock bricks were used for the cladding on the bungalow project which was brick cladded all the way around, the double-faced brick enabled us to get two brick tiles from each brick. The full brick cladding corner pieces were also cut from the same brick, these were needed around the window reveals. All the other corners of the main house were cladded with precast Portland stone-coloured cornerstones. We can also source most bricks for cutting into brick slips or brick cladding we can also source the brick cladding ready-made in a 15mm thickness. All the brick materials we use for external cladding are frost proof, some brick slip tiles can be as thin as 7mm good for internal brick cladding but we wouldn’t recommend using them for external applications.
