MKM Building Supplies' wide range of bricks comes from some of the UK's leading brick manufacturers, and whether it's budget, aesthetics or function that's foremost in your mind, rest assured that you won't need to compromise on quality. From sleek and artistic to traditionally rustic, our range includes the whole gamut of styles and colours, making us your one-stop shop for all your brick needs.
When choosing standard-sized bricks (215mm x 102.5mm x 65mm), a simple way to estimate the number of bricks you will need for any given structure is to calculate the square metreage of the facing walls and multiply it by 60.
If you're planning a new build, the style of brick you choose is an important consideration. Your location might have an impact on the materials and colours available to you: some planning authorities only allow homes to be made with bricks common to the local area. In the North of England, this could mean red bricks, while blues are more common in the Midlands, for example.
As well as colour, you have a number of materials to choose from, all with slightly different properties. Clay bricks, for instance, are known for being one of the most eco-friendly options. For a uniform appearance, you might want to choose sand lime or machine-made bricks. However, some people like the rougher, more irregular look of traditional hand-made bricks.
Alternatively, you might be looking to match a particular brick style for a refurbishment or restoration project. With so many styles in stock, we're sure you'll find a match – if you can't, please get in touch with us and we'll be happy to help you look for it!
