The concept of dual-faced bricks is unique, they feature one clean/plain face and header, while the reverse side is weathered. This innovative design allows bricks to be laid using either face, or a combination of both. So you have the flexibility to choose all plain, all weathered or a custom combination of both to suit your desired brickwork aesthetic.
Our range of dual-faced options gives customers more choice while simultaneously reducing storage, handling and transport, as one brick type can provide multiple blending options.
Opting to use dual-faced bricks for your project gives you the ability to tailor the finished look to match existing period or weathered brickwork, or to harmonise with the surrounding architecture. Additionally, they are a cost effective and sustainable alternative to using reclaimed bricks, which frequently fail to meet modern standards for frost resistance or compressive strength, and can be costly and hard to source in large quantities. By choosing dual-faced bricks, you can avoid these common challenges and enjoy a more efficient on-site building process.
Many of our most popular bricks, which include both handmade and machine-made options, are now available with dual-faces as a standard feature in both imperial and metric sizes. Whether you require uniform brickwork that retains a new appearance, or a more weathered, rustic look, these bricks are the solution to your needs.
All bricks are available to sample by submitting an online request or visiting your local stocking builders merchants.
