Self-builders to discover importance of bricks at NSBRC Show

Self-builders can learn which bricks will add value and character to their projects on Imperial Bricks’ stand 68/69 at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre Show in Swindon, 27th-29th January. Experts will be available on the stand to offer advice and guidance on bricks for new build, renovation and restoration projects. Visitors will also benefit from special show offers.

Imperial Bricks offers the widest range of traditional handmade, wirecut, pressed and reclamation bricks available from a single supplier in the UK. Its full range of 35 bricks, with many available as brick slips, will be on display. In addition, complementary products including natural slate, handmade roof tiles, stone paving, sleepers, oak flooring, reclaimed building materials, Yorkstone and architectural salvage will also be available to purchase. This means self-builders can source many of the materials required for a new-build or renovation project from just one supplier.

In addition, Ruth Hughes, Specification Manager at Imperial Bricks will present the seminar, ‘How to choose the right brick for your restoration, renovation or new build project’ on January 27th at 12pm on the main Theatre Stage.

Ruth explains:

“Colours of bricks vary widely throughout the UK, and there’s a specific shade for every region. We’ve noticed planners are increasingly looking for regionally-matched bricks for restoration work or new build projects in conservation areas. This is an ideal opportunity for self-builders to find out more about regional variations in brick size, colour and texture and to choose the right bricks for their projects.”

Visitor tickets are £12 on the day or can be reserved for free online. Visit  for more on bricks or for further details on the show.
