What Are Facing Bricks?

 
As the name suggests, facing bricks are bricks manufactured to be utilised as facing, i.e., the exterior of a building's wall. Since facing bricks UK have the biggest impact on the external aesthetic appeal of a building it is particularly important to select the right product for your project.
 
The wirecut or extruded are the most popular brick types. They are manufactured from fired clay, mortar is used for reinforcement, then it is bonded with cement, sand, and water. These bricks are immediately recognisable from the standard brickwork since they are more exacting in shape, size in comparison to mud soft or clay bricks. They vary in a selection of colours, from the classic red facing bricks (rustic) to contemporary (smooth blue), browns and yellows. The texture of the bricks plays a key role, the light texture and smooth bricks will compliment modern buildings, whereas glazed textures and solid edges will add that additional advantage that will influence the price point. For a more worn weathered look, the heavily textured bricks would suit the most.
