brick cuttingBulmer Brick Cutting is a specialist in the trade and craft of commercial brick cutting. We create brick arches and brick cladding for new build and restoration projects.

Our purpose built workshops have been designed to allow fast clean production of high-quality machine cut and hand cut special brick shapes.

The traditional dry cut process used at Bulmer ensures the finest soft red rubbers and stock facings can be cut straight from the kiln by machine and then hand cut, carved or bonded on the same day with no delay for drying.

We design and manufacture bespoke brick arches and structural brick lintels and create unique decorative brick work products and features.

brick archesOur services include cutting, carving, bonding, fabricating, reinforcing, tinting and re-facing either your stock bricks or our finest soft red rubbers. These are produced from soft red London bed clays that are still quarried, moulded and fired on this site.

block cuttingAll orders receive a full size or scale CAD drawings to sign or amend, confirming your approval, before manufacture proceeds.

Working with architects, builders, main contractors and bricklayers alike, we provide both traditional and modern skills that are increasingly difficult to find in the modern construction market.

In addition to traditional hand cut features and carved special bricks, you can also expect a modern manufacturing production line for fabricated cut and bonded angles, as well as cut half bats, closers and cut block specials. Our experience includes brick arches, fabricated chimneys, brick clad concrete features and refaced brick specials such as plinths and canted bricks.

The offer of an uncompromising guarantee of satisfaction is applied to every project undertaken, no matter how large or small. If you have a project you would like us to look at, you can use the Contact Us page to make an enquiry, submit drawings and/or specifications. We are happy to offer help, advice and constructive suggestions, to make your ideas work in practice.
