Guildford – Brick Match
extension to period property
All Brick and Stone were approached to help assist with a sensitive brick match for a large two storey extension to a period property in Guildford.
Once a site visit had been conducted, it was deemed imperative to be sympathetic to the original character of the building as it featured herringbone panels to the rear of the house which were in need of repair work. This became part of the overall brief.
As the property was of significant age, the facing bricks previously supplied were no longer available, meaning our expertise was going to be tested. Inspecting the colours on the original house closely, All Brick and Stone were able to create a bespoke blend ideally suited for a match. Alongside the main brickwork, All brick and Stone were able to also produce a suitable blend for the herringbone panels, which also needed careful consideration to ensure the heritage of this beautiful building was preserved.
On completion of the project, our client expressed their delight with the result – we have since continued to work in partnership on other schemes.
