Brick Match Help and Identifying Existing House Bricks

Postby Dats » Thu May 17, 2018 9:00 pm

We are due to start an extension soon and are having trouble matching to the bricks on the house. So what I know is:

- The house was built in the 30's

- The house is in Staffordshire

- The bricks weight is 4.1kg a brick

- They are Imperial

- They are smooth

- This may just be me but the bricks seem almost shiny they are certainly not matt in appearance

I have also included a photo. If anyone has any idea what these bricks are called I would be grateful if they could tell me, we have had some merchants round to match the bricks however only one has got close to a match and his prices seemed very steep.
