Caradale Royal Rustic Brick Match

Postby Souljim » Thu Apr 08, 2021 8:24 pm

Hi All,

I’m trying to find a brick match for an extension build and I’m struggling. The original house brick was from Caradale and it’s called Royal Rustic. They went out of business in 2011 and I haven’t been able to find anything suitable yet. Has anybody got any suggestions or had to overcome the same challenge and managed to find something suitable.

When I can reduce the file sizes I’ll post some photos.

Thanks in advance
James

Hi souljim
Matching bricks which were manufactured 10 or 20 years ago is difficult even if the same manufacturer is still operating.
Find a dedicated brick merchant and ask what they suggest. If your house has cavity walls you could remove the outer skin, clean up the bricks and use them in critical areas.
