Brick Slips have become a favored material in both residential and commercial constructions, offering the aesthetic appeal of traditional bricks with a more convenient installation process.
However, as with any building material, there is a possibility, albeit small, of breakage during handling or transport so brick slip breakages and replacements are naturally a question we get asked about.
Prevention and Preparation
Understanding that breakages can occur, it is wise to be prepared. Industry experts suggest ordering an additional 5 to 10% of materials for any significant project to account for any unexpected issues.
Calculating the Extra Amount: 5-10% More
When ordering your brick slips, calculate the total square footage of your project and then add 5 to 10% more. This foresight ensures that you have enough brick slips to complete your project without delays, even if some pieces are broken.
The Replacement Process
