Bricks & Pavers Sample Matching
Boral understands and appreciates how important it is your new renovation blends seamlessly with the old.
To assist in obtaining the closest possible match, Boral has developed a sample matching service to take the guesswork out of identifying older style bricks and pavers.
Simply bring a few pieces of the bricks or pavers you'd like to match into a Boral display centre for help identifying and matching your bricks or pavers. If that's not possible, take a good quality, well lit picture of the bricks or pavers you'd like to match and email it to us at Boral Bricks.

Older style brick renovations
Additionally, Boral produce a popular range of older style Renovators clay bricks*, designed to help renovators maintain the original character and look of their home or project.
If you are unable to see a match for your bricks or pavers on the Boral website don't despair! From time to time, special production runs of older style bricks are made specifically for the renovation market, so ask whether the bricks you want to match are in stock.
In the unfortunate event that the bricks or pavers you're trying to match are not available, your Boral Sales Advisor can suggest the closest match from our selection of current bricks or pavers, and can even give you a sample to take away and consider.
Boral recommends renovators view and personally select bricks or pavers being matched. Please note that bricks or pavers are likely to vary from the originals, even though they may have the same name. Although Boral makes every effort to supply consistent bricks and pavers, colour and size variation does occur naturally within a production run and with each production run of bricks and pavers.
Renovating, building an extension or re-landscaping can often be an expensive exercise, so it's important to get things right first time around so you're happy with the end result. And because bricks and pavers are often a fundamental component of these projects, Boral is pleased to offer a sample matching service to make life that little bit easier.

Recycling leftover clay bricks, pavers and roof tiles*
Once you've completed your project, don't send your leftover clay bricks, pavers and roof tiles to landfill. Because clay bricks, pavers and roof tiles are made from natural materials, they can easily be crushed back to their original state and reused in the manufacture of new internal brick products.
We have 5 designated recycling yards conveniently located across the Perth metropolitan area where smaller loads of clean clay bricks, clay pavers and clay roof tiles can be dropped off for recycling. Find out more about Boral's award winning brick & paver recycling initiative.
This is just another example of Boral's approach to building a sustainable future - minimising mining of valuable natural resources and also diverting waste materials from landfill.
