Choose the right brick with our new interactive Brick Matcher app

Here at Imperial Bricks, the leading traditional handmade brick supplier in the UK, we’ve created an app to help architects, specifiers, merchants, housebuilders, developers and self-builders identify the right brick for their projects. Whether out on site or in the office, our app makes it easy to view Imperial’s entire range of bricks and the relevant technical data.

Users can upload a picture of existing brickwork, and our expert team will send the closest brick match from our range – usually an exact match. Enter the dimensions of a wall, and the built-in brick calculator will determine how many bricks are required in either imperial or metric sizes. Users can also specify the brickwork bond – or pattern – used for an accurate estimation.

It’s easy to source and compare bricks (including brick slips, ‘specials’ and pavers) by region, size, colour, level of weathering and texture. Users can request samples, brochures or even a site visit from us to determine the best brick.

“Our in-house brick experts are very knowledgeable on choosing the right brick for the right project. The Brick Matcher app is a great tool to find the perfect match for existing brickwork on refurb projects or to ensure a new build ‘blends in’ with surrounding properties”, says Jason Hughes, MD here at Imperial Bricks.

Imperial Bricks offer excellent lead times and bespoke blending or weathering across our whole range of handmade, wirecut and pressed bricks.

Visit the iTunes store and search ‘Imperial Bricks’ to download the iOS app, with Android to follow in the next few weeks.
