Ask Tobermore – Benefits of using Concrete Facing Bricks

Question: My local builders’ merchant recently suggested using concrete facing bricks on my upcoming build. What do you consider to be their key benefits?


Readily available

One of the key benefits of concrete facing bricks is that they are readily available. While many clay brick makers struggle to meet demand from previously reduced manufacturing bases, concrete facing brick makers maintained production during the downturn and have since made a significant investment to boost production to meet the growing demand for quality facing brick.

Aesthetically pleasing

When it comes to aesthetics, even experienced specifiers have difficulty spotting the difference. The range of strong aesthetics, palette of colours and textures make concrete facing brick a fair match to clay.
