Rendering / Builder’s Grade
These particular bricks are superior for rendering, as they do not swell or crack when rendered. They can be used as a cheaper alternative for pavers, though they tend to have more imperfections than paving grade bricks, and the brick colours are not as aesthetically pleasing.
Over the past several years there has been an increasing demand for recycled bricks to be used as pavers. This grade of brick is perfect to use as pavers. They are generally in popular colours, and a better condition compared to rendering / builder’s grade of bricks.
People ideally use this grade of brick when renovating an existing dwelling, or completing a half-finished exterior project. They are great to match to existing brickwork, and are perfect to use instead of new or face bricks.
Sandstock bricks, (also known as convict bricks) are the oldest type of brick available. Many convict bricks are over 200 years old, and are usually found in heritage buildings. They are also used when wanting to create a certain theme or look for your project.
Bull Nose bricks are used on window sills or fences, and are known as Bull-Nose bricks as they will have 1 or 2 rounded sides. They are particularly useful in high-traffic areas as they do not have sharp edges.
Blue-Black bricks are called this due to their distinctive colouring. They can be quite rare, but are very striking when used in substantial amounts.
