Matching discontinued house bricks.
An out of control driver late at night missed the corner, lost control and launched the vehicle through the front fence and into the front of the house on Sydney’s North Shore. Luckily no one was injured however, the owners were still upset that their house had been damaged through no fault of their own.
In many cases the bricks used on houses can be discontinued depending on the age of the building and brick type. Luckily on this occasion, we were able to find a brick called “Urban One Silver” from Austral Bricks that successfully made a good match.
The work doesn’t stop with just the brick. If the mortar isn’t closely matched, then the repair will stand out. Once the brickwork had been completed and washed down, the new brickwork blended in well.
