Handmade bricks are a soft faced brick, imperial in size and orange/red in colour. Handmades are often known as Soft Reds and are ideal for work to period properties, or for internal and external character work.

Reclaimed Handmade bricks are original imperial bricks that date back to the 19th century and were used as a main form of building material that is still very much in view today, particularly throughout Berkshire and Surrey.

Handmades are often used for extensions on properties where the customer wishes to match the original house, or to build a new building with the character of an older building. Handmade Stocks are also often used for conservatory bases, internal walls and fireplaces, filling in gaps where windows have been removed and for external garden walls.
