This is my first post here so apologies if this isn't the type of question that should be asked.
I am undertaking some work on my house in Liverpool UK which was built (we think) in 1994. We (and our building contractor) are finding it very difficult to find matching bricks. One of the difficulties I am having is the terminology used.
In terms of colour I'm not sure if my bricks are considered red, buff, orange etc.
In terms of texture I'm not sure if my bricks are dragfaced, sandfaced, creased, distressed etc.
What words would I use to describe this brick to a tradesman/dealer in order to find the best match? (A small part of me hopes that some genius on the internet would be able to tell me the exact name/brand for this brick!)
