Some of the Brick Slips are created from genuine reclaimed clay bricks and are ideal for older properties, customers with modern properties tend to go with preformed brick slips that are manufactured. They can be used on internal or external projects but we find most people who are opting to use brick slips with the concept of insulation as a priority opt to go external. Not only does it meet the requirement but it also gives the property an external upgrade at the same time. They can really assist with protecting the internal walls from the elements as they are water and frost proof which is a real added bonus, bang for your buck as such.
The teams use insulated boards that have a tracking system on one side for the slips to be placed, these vary in thickness and price starting from 17mm through to 150 mm. The insulated boards are drilled and plugged through into the substrate of the build, the brick slips are then positioned onto the tracking sheet and then left for a short period to bond. Once this has been completed the Brickslip fitters will point up the bricks using traditional methods, making sure the overall finish is outstanding and authentic.
The Brickslip Brothers have gone to great lengths to make sure their teams are well trained and have achieved a great blend of talented professionals.
