Parker Building Supplies stocks a wide range of standard and handmade bricks from the most popular and reputable suppliers. We can supply wired, machined and handmade bricks. We supply Ibstock, Freshfield Lane Brickworks, Hanson and Terca facing bricks and paving.

Our stock of bricks include engineering bricks, used where strength, low water porosity or acid resistance (such as in flue gas situations) are required.

Our supply of handmade bricks are for situations where individuality is of the essence. Changing the shape or size of the brick is as easy as changing the mold.

We also supply dark, yellow and red multi stock bricks, commonly used for heritage work. Machine-made versions are available for use where a cheaper approximation to the traditional product is acceptable.

There are two primary methods most manufacturers use to shape bricks in bulk; pressing and wire-cutting. The pressing method creates a brick by pressing clay material into a brick mold or form and applying pressure. This method tends to be more expensive, but it does typically produce very strong bricks of a uniform size and shape. Wire-cut bricks are cured or fired pieces of clay that have been formed into brick shapes with the aid of a wire cutter. Bricks made this way will tend to be more porous and weaker than pressed bricks. They also typically have a noticeable rough edge to them, resulting from the friction as the wire was drawn across the surface.

We have considerable skill in matching bricks. To find out how our brick matching service can help you, complete the form on the Parker Brickmatcher page.
