Whilst doing your research we are positive you’ve come across people raving about reclaimed brick slips. So naturally, we are sure you’ve wondered ‘what is so great about them?’ Well, we are here to tell you!
We’ll start with the obvious point. Reclaimed brick slips are unique. Each individual slip is one of a kind and no two slips are the same. They have all been handmade as well as experiencing wear and tear at different rates. We only reclaim bricks that we are confident will be just as durable as bricks that are being used for the first time. A huge amount of time and thought go into this process so you can be assured that you are getting the best of the best.
Another big reason reclaimed brick slips are so popular is because of the environmental benefits they offer. These bricks have all been recycled and therefore most likely saved from going to landfill. Whilst some brick slip alternatives may be more environmentally friendly during the initial manufacturing, if you dig a little deeper you’ll find there’s more to the story. Brick slips have an extremely long life span as 100+ years is considered the norm. On the other hand, the alternatives will last around 10-15 years before being stripped and sent to landfill. Therefore, real clay reclaimed brick slips tend to have a smaller carbon footprint than the other available options.
