Brick Specials in our yard

Brick Specials include all the unusual bricks with special shapes like bullnose, calf nose, cant, squint and plinth bricks, along with even more specialised bricks like sill bricks, air bricks, frieze bricks, fire or storage heater bricks, and difficult-to-find gully bricks.

These special bricks add individuality to homes and buildings and can be used for finishing window sills, corners, pillars and walls.

Bullnose bricks come in many different styles. They have at least one rounded corner or face and are used to soften the corners of openings to doorways and windows, as edgings or wall copings, and to create steps or window sills.

Calf nose bricks have a more softly curved profile and were used to soften the corners of agricultural buildings to prevent animals from injuring themselves, or in industrial and mill buildings where machinery might get caught and damage brickwork. They look very effective when used on corners of entrances or brickwork pillars.

Cant bricks have one (Single Cant) or two (Double Cant) angled corners and can be used as window sills or for a softer edge to building openings.

Squint bricks have variously angled ends (usually 45°) and are used to change the direction of walls.

Plinth stretchers are used to widen the base of walls or buildings to improve stability and aesthetic appeal. Plinth headers are usually used in conjunction with plinth stretchers or as window sills. We also stock specialised sill bricks with drip moulds built in for window sills.

Our extensive range of Brick Specials includes new (class A and concessions) and reclaimed bricks. Concessions are fully compliant with building regulations but have been purchased as seconds due to minor aesthetic imperfections, allowing us to offer them to customers at large discounts. They are ideal either where products won’t be seen or a variable, non-standard appearance is desirable.

We also have various new, handmade brick specials. These are new, handmade bricks traditionally made in moulds that replicate the appearance of reclaimed bricks but are reliably available in larger quantities. They are frost-proof and made with authentic colouration and a distressed face for a convincing reclaimed look.
