The ‘Haute couture’ of bricks and mortars

The ‘Haute couture’ of bricks and mortars

16 August 2016

The ‘look’ of a house or a building can be subtly changed with the use of different coloured bricks with co-ordinating or contrasting mortar. A new partnership between All about Bricks and CEMEX offers architects and property developers over 7000 possible variations, created by selecting one of 446 All about bricks and adding a coloured mortar from 16 different CEMEX mortars.

“Working together CEMEX and All about Bricks can positively influence the design process by adding the right bricks and mortars to give a building a different ‘look’ and ‘feel’  be it  modern, vibrant, subdued, traditional or many more alternatives. With CEMEX we have found a partner that offer a diverse range of choice and the highest quality materials available nationwide,”  comments Jonathan Plews,  Managing Direct All About Bricks.

It’s easy to envisage the final resulting brickwork by using the new selector on the All About Bricks website,  Simply choose the colour of the brick hover over it and a drop down menu shows the 16 mortar colours. By selecting a colour the visuals change to show the finished ‘look’, just like selecting a new shirt, dress or pair of shoes from a fashion website.

The bricks and mortars are available through leading builders merchants such as Elliots, Jewson, Travis Perkins and others.
