Home extensions are a popular way to add much-needed space and extra value to your home. And one of the most important aspects to get correct is quality brickwork. It's a fundamental element - from selecting a style that matches the existing brickwork of your home, to carefully joining up the new part of the building to the old to give a seamless finish.
A brick-built extension is warm, stylish and can really enhance your house extensions. The tone, texture and type of brick are important considerations

There's a lot to consider, cost and appearance are two key factors, as the price can vary a lot between types of brick. We also consider the bond, or the pattern that the bricks for home extensions are laid in. This matters both aesthetically and structurally - not only does it have an impact on what your home extension looks like, but also how the load is distributed, so it needs to be carefully determined.
Decorative banding in a contrasting colour, a dentil bond where the depth of some of the bricks is alternated or a corbelled eave that projects out from the building are all ways of adding flair to your design. Choose the right brickwork company and all of these factors will be taken into consideration to create an extension which truly complements your home.
‘We have recently finished a large new build house in the Chiltern Countryside, we used TBFC Brickwork for all our brickwork and most of the hard landscaping.
The quality of the brickwork has been commented on by so many people from other tradespeople to neighbours and friends. Every member of the team were a joy to work with, friendly and helpful to everyone on site - a rare trait in the industry when most seem to moan about other trades whenever they can! It is a timber framed house with a complete traditional brick skin with decorative solider course and a plinth skirt around the whole building, using a handmade brick - not the easiest brief. But the resulting building is a top quality house and the landscaping is exactly what we wanted and we are delighted. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you everyone at TBFC.
I have worked with TBFC Brickwork for the last few years. They are a friendly, hard working and reliable bricklaying contractor. They deliver the highest of standards at a fair price. TBFC Brickwork have completed complex and detailed works for me on both new build and refurbishment projects including one off and multiple unit developments. I will continue to work with the team and would highly recommend their services.
TBFC Brickwork came as a recommendation to me and have just finished the brickwork on two new builds which were built to timescales and with a great deal of detail and cleanliness, all of the team were highly skilled, punctual, reliable and ultimately very courteous and considerate to neighbours.
They will be my first port of call going forward with our future builds.
TBFC Brickwork has been outstanding. His work has been of the highest quality and I would recommend him to anyone. He has overseen a large project for us which we were very nervous about starting but has made it as painless as possible. He kept to his proposed schedule, which can be difficult at times, and we are delighted with the end result.
Highly recommend TBFC Brickwork, their work is exceptional. I use them frequently on my building projects. Always Professional and reliable
Recommended by a friend, TBFC Brickwork team have done a great job on building our single storey extension, they not only carried out the brick work but also did a great job at setting up the block and beam floor and all the steel work on our project, which along with converting our bungalow to have new attic rooms they made good of all the old walls, and built up the required gable ends. We have been very happy with what they have delivered, they remained productive and throughout the process and the result speaks for itself, also a very easy going group who conduct themselves really well.
