As part of an independent, self-build project, we worked with Jack Cory. He needed our help to match the bricks of the reclaimed buildings in the surrounding cul-de-sac. Based out of Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, we went down to make sure Jack had the brick stock that would best suit his build, avoiding an aesthetic clash.
After doing a sample panel at the site, we decided that the 65 mm Olde Mill Blend was the best match for the build. Our client loved the choice and it fit extremely well. With a mixture of red, orange and burgundy tones, this distinctive brickwork style is synonymous with traditional homes in Cheshire. Weathered and aged to a highly textured finish, they are indistinguishable from other salvaged bricks. This made them the perfect candidate for a build needing to blend in with other reclaimed architecture.
