So what do we need?

We simply require 3 images of the existing brickwork along with the quantity required, a timescale for delivery and any sizes.

You can either email the information directly to brickmatch@brickhunter.com or "Create Your Project" online.

We can help with any brick match request and will get a reply to you within 24 hours (in the majority of cases it will be quicker).

Once we've received your images we'll always try and provide you with an exact match where we can.

Unfortunately a perfect match isn't always possible due to the existing brick being discontinued or no longer available, in which case we'll recommend the best possible alternatives.

How do you measure your brick?

To correctly measure a brick, ensuring the size is right for your project, you'll just need a tape measure and your creative eye (as well as the actual brick wall).

Tape measure

Height

Measuring the height of a brick

Turn the tape measure to a vertical position, measuring from the bottom of the tape (metal tip) level to the bottom of the brick and stretch it out to the topside of the brick.

(Excluding mortar, the average should be about 60mm.)

Length

Measuring the length of a brick

For the length, do the same as you did for the height, but turn the tape to a horizontal position and measure across the brick.

(The average length of most brick is around 7-8 inches.)

Depth

Measuring the depth of a brick

A handy pro-tip for measuring the depth is to measure a brick at the very corner of your wall so you can measure the small end of the brick.

(3 inches approx.)

If the clay brick the home is built from is still manufactured (either in the UK or in Mainland Europe) we can always provide the exact brick by name*

Michael Kirk as Snap

Many of the 25 million homes were built using clay bricks which are no longer manufactured it's often regrettable and impossible for us to provide an exact visual match just by selecting one brick type.

Colour picker

In these instances we would recommend either the blending of multiple brick types or using weathering or tinting/colouring.

* Be aware that clay bricks are manufactured in batches and can vary in colour and texture from batch to batch. The availability of bricks can go out to several months when the UK is busy building new houses or if the factory encounters a problem with production so we would always recommend advance planning and communication.

If we can't quite get the colour match right due to weathering or your brick type no longer being available it may we worth considering a weathering solution or brick tinting.

Please take a look at our Brick Tinting (Colouring) page...
