Common Bricks

We have common bricks available from all our Building branches

Our building branches sell common bricks that are available in many different colours and textures. Hanson believe in quality, not quantity and have developed a select range of bricks which represents everything from classic to contemporary.

The latest edition to our brick stock range is the Ibstock Tradesman range of bricks, where you can SAVE £££’s compared to London Bricks.

Common bricks are an inherently sustainable building material, they have a lifespan in excess of 150 years, require little to no maintenance, and can be recycled at the end of their use. They also contribute to thermal mass, resulting in buildings which need less energy for heating and cooling.Common bricks should be stored on a level, free-draining surface that is protected from the elements. Polythene wrapping provides protection from the weather; if this is removed for inspection it needs to be replaced or alternative protection needs to be provided. Bricks should be loaded-out from a minimum of 3 packs and it is advisable to draw from the packs in vertical rather than horizontal slices. Doing this helps avoid colour patchiness or banding in the brickwork.

All our building merchant branches can offer a brick matching service for common bricks or any other type of bricks and what’s more this is a FREE service. Simply bring a sample of the brick you require or a good quality image into one of our branches and our staff will help you find what you’re looking for
