Brick is back!
This traditional building material is back in vogue with architects, not only for stable structures but to display innovative design and craftsmanship.
Taylor Maxwell partner with UK and European brick manufacturers, to supply a large range of bricks to meet the appearance and budget requirements of your development. Our range includes a broad spectrum of colours including reds, oranges, blues, greys, yellows and creams. In addition to this, we also supply glazed bricks and create bespoke blends to meet the vision of your design.
Modern, fired, clay bricks are formed using one of three manufacturing processes – soft mud (stock), dry press (hand-made), or extruded (wire-cut), each have a unique influence on the size, shape, texture and colour of the finished product.
Despite being at the higher end of most budgets, handmade bricks are increasingly becoming a preferred option. They offer increased texture and depth with imperfections that create a sense of warmth and are more versatile than mass produced facings.
The benefits of clay brickwork
Bricks will work in almost all built environments, and offer a permanence that few other materials can match. Clay bricks will weather naturally over time and do not require routine maintenance and redecoration.
With specialists based in 12 offices across the UK, Taylor Maxwell can provide local knowledge of the bricks used on existing schemes, or bricks suited to the local architectural style. We can then provide samples for approval based on an exact match where possible, or the nearest brick blend/type to meet the required finish.
In addition, we offer the ‘Select Range’ of bricks which are manufactured exclusively for Taylor Maxwell and offer a wide range of finishes at a very competitive price point.
