There are plenty of bricks choices out there for your property such as waterstruck bricks, glazed bricks, roman, terracotta, precast, clay pavers, modular and many other types of bricks. Waterstruck bricks are made using a soft mud process where the clay from the waterstruck bricks is mixed with water and pressed into wooden molds and lubricated with water so that the waterstruck bricks do not stick to the clay. This process is best suitable for clays that have too much natural water to be used in the stiff mud process. Waterstruck bricks have a very smooth finish and the alternative soft mud brick is used by pressing the mold with sand which then give the sand struck bricks a more grainy and sandy finish. Due to using very soft and wet clay to make the waterstruck bricks, the waterstruck bricks are produced to give the appearance that they are almost two hundred years old when brand new. The waterstruck bricks create a textured effect and waterstruck bricks must be produced using the soft mud process to achieve this look which is unachievable using other brick making processes. Waterstruck bricks have a certain ruggedness look and look as though they have been made by hand, rough around the edges and irregular looking waterstruck bricks. Waterstruck bricks nowadays are made using traditional methods to create authentic rather than simulated waterstruck bricks to look like they were originally made two hundred years ago. The production of waterstruck bricks create strong, tough and hard wearing waterstruck bricks where they are almost indestructible and possess a unique beauty that is rare in modern and new buildings and waterstruck bricks made today will still be around in two hundred years time. Historical buildings made from waterstruck bricks include Col. Peter Tufts House built pre 1700 which is considered to one of the oldest standing waterstruck bricks houses in America and Christ Church built in 1723 where it’s structure was made entirely from local waterstruck bricks and astonishing is still used daily.
