An ever increasing number of Architects are specifying brick slip cladding on both commercial and residential projects.
The natural texture and aesthetic of brick is undoubtedly a major deciding factor, but that’s not the only benefit to using brick slip cladding. Here we look at the detailed aesthetics alongside the practical benefits of using brick slip cladding on your next project.
Brick slip cladding is beautiful
Whether your project is of a contemporary or traditional design, brickwork is timeless in adding character and accentuating the aesthetic of any building.
The natural origins of brick and clay mean that each tile is subtly unique and individual. By using various brick bond patterns and designs, buildings that would normally be complex to build can be executed quicker and easier with more flamboyance and greater grandeur.
Environmental benefits of using brick slip cladding.
Growing concerns about climate change and the urge to reduce CO2 emissions in the construction industry make cladding materials and methods ideal for environmentally conscious Architects and their Clients. CO2 emissions are one of the most significant contributors to global warming, therefore a key factor in addressing the issue is to have a commitment to reducing our drain on the planet.
At brickslips.co.uk we have our own dedicated Green Team. The green team is a group of employees who meet regularly to discuss our green agenda. The team devise and implement greener ways of working to champion energy saving ideas.
This quality commitment is helping the company work towards our targets for the future.
Practical benefits of using Brick Slip Cladding
Brick slips used externally are extremely durable and long lasting when properly installed. Brick slips weather in exactly the same way their parent bricks do, over time they will age in exactly the same way. These subtle changes in the brick surface are what give buildings their character and appeal. Brick cladding is also extremely useful for hard to access areas. Areas where a brick layer may struggle to build, slip panels can be pre-built and fixed in place.
