Imperial Bricks, the leading traditional handmade brick supplier, has updated the app to help builders’ merchants identify the right brick for their projects. Whether out on site or in the office, the app makes it easy to view Imperial’s entire range of bricks and the relevant technical data. The app is now available on Android through the Google Play store as well as iTunes, thanks to popular demand from customers.
With almost 1,500 downloads to date, users can upload a picture of existing brickwork, and Imperial Bricks’ expert team will email the closest brick from its range – usually an exact match, and free samples are available on request. Enter the dimensions of a wall, and the built-in brick calculator will determine how many bricks are required in either imperial or metric sizes. Users can also specify the brickwork bond – or pattern – used for an accurate estimation.
It’s easy to source and compare bricks (including brick slips, ‘specials’ and pavers) by region, size, colour, level of weathering and texture. Users can request samples, brochures or even a site visit to determine the best brick.
MD of Imperial Bricks Jason Hughes, says: “Our in-house team are experts on helping customers choose the right bricks. The Brick Matcher app is a great tool to find the perfect match for existing brickwork on refurb projects or to ensure a new build ‘blends in’ with surrounding properties, adding kerb appeal and value.”
Imperial Bricks offers excellent lead times and bespoke blending or weathering across its whole range of handmade, wirecut and pressed bricks. Visit the iTunes store and search for ‘Brick Matcher’ to download the iOS app, or the Google Play store for the new Android version.
