With over 30 years of experience in reclamation Deery Demolition ensure that maximum yield of period materials and architectural antiques are salvaged from demolition of Georgian, Victorian and pre-war 20th Century buildings. Main areas of salvage are bricks, roof tiles, timber floorboards and joists and architectural antiques. We process these items quickly for resale into the reclamation trade and sometimes private customers. The speed at which these items are processed does not affect the high quality of the finished product, and we have customers throughout the UK ready to take them off our hands as soon as they are available.

Using recycled bricks can be a very good solution for a build, as it reduces the cost of materials and the carbon footprint of the project. Bricks are also a very sturdy building product, and can be easily reused in builds of all types.

Reclaimed bricks are bricks that are rescued from old buildings and cleaned up. Their edges are typically worn and irregular and they may have remnants of mortar due to their original use. Good quality reclaimed bricks only require 2 workable sides, 1 bond and 1 stretch.

“Every time you reuse 2,000 old bricks instead of new bricks, you save the environment 1 tonne of CO2.”

Yellow Stock Bricks

Yellow Stock Bricks are original imperial bricks, they were predominately used within the London area and are also found in the South East. They were mass produced in the early 1900’s, at Smeed Dean Brickworks, Kent. The fields around London were built up with new housing during this period using Yellow Stock Bricks. They are still very much in demand.
Reclaimed Yellow stock bricks are sought after for decorative conservation, restoration use and for additions where the new build will mirror the original.

Our Yellow Stocks are professionally hand sorted, cleaned and graded by our own team, then consistently packed from outside in on pallets ready for reuse.

Gaunts Bricks

Gaunts, known in some areas as gault bricks, are a construction brick. They are formed from clay and are commonly found in the south of England, especially East Anglia, though the attractive colour means that they have been used in construction throughout the United Kingdom.

Gault is a clay which can be found in the south of England, including Surrey and Sussex. It formed as a geological layer during the Cretaceous period of prehistory, which scientists estimate to have lasted from 145 million to 66 million years ago. In its natural setting, the clay can have a grey or blueish hint. However gaunt, or gault, bricks when formed have an attractive colour that can range in shade from yellow to a buff colour. They are noted for having a smooth surface and being hard faced.

Calculating Bricks

One aspect of brickwork which often causes confusion is estimating how many bricks or blocks will be required for a planned wall – you don’t want to run out before you finish but you also don’t want a pallet load of material left unused when you have finished. Making these estimates is fairly straightforward using just a few figures.

Half brick wall

A half brick wide wall requires 60 bricks per square metre.

So the first stage is just to measure the height and length (including any piers) of the wall in metres, multiply them together to give the area in square metres, and then multiply this by 60.

So the total number of bricks for the wall is:

wall height (metres) x wall length (metres) x 60 = number of bricks

One brick wall

A one brick wide wall requires 120 bricks per square metre.

So the first stage is just to measure the height and length of the wall in metres, multiply them together to give the area in square metres, and then multiply this by 120.

So the total number of bricks for the wall is:

wall height (metres) x wall length (metres) x 120 = number of bricks
