What are Ibstock Bricks?
Ibstock bricks are the UK’s leading brick manufacturer offering over 500 facing bricks to choose from. Ibstock bricks are designed to be seen, presented with a clean and even look, ideal for exterior facades.
Ibstock bricks are a popular choice for the outside walls of any building work. They have been used for many years especially in house building.
Ibstock bricks are made from clay which have a high thermal mass and low conductivity, which when incorporated into a building provides acoustic insulation.
Clay bricks have a long service life, are reusable and are highly durable.
There are three main types of bricks – facing bricks, engineering bricks and common bricks. However, there are many more variations, styles and manufacturing processes that make different bricks suitable for different jobs.
Where are Ibstock Bricks Used?
Bricks are the most abundant and natural material on earth. Bricks have been used for building innumerable structures over many thousands of years because of their durability.
Brick houses can last at least 100 years with minimal maintenance. With regular care and attention, including mortar repointing, brick houses can last 500 years or more.
Bricks are a clean natural material that doesn’t impact the environment. Bricks are fired at temperatures so high that organic materials are eradicated. A house made entirely of bricks is an investment, and it pays off in the short-term and long-run.

Different types of Ibstock Bricks
There are three main types of Ibstock bricks – facing bricks, engineering bricks and common bricks. However, there are many more variations, styles and manufacturing processes that make different bricks suitable for different jobs.
Facing bricks are the most popular type of brick and have been the façade material of choice in the UK for thousands of years, particularly in the housing market.
Engineering bricks have high compressive strength and low water absorption. They are used for their physical characteristics and not their appearance and are only classified by these properties.
Despite their name, common bricks are actually the least common brick types in the UK. They tend to have lower compressive strengths than facing bricks or engineering bricks and are generally lower quality.Order Ibstock Bricks
