Bricks & Blocks
Using our wealth of experience, we can advise you and offer a range of pricing alternatives for engineering, everyday and handmade bricks. Within our range you’ll find large clay terracotta blocks, clamp-fired blocks, imperials, stocks and wirecuts. We now also sell Ecostock bricks: the most environmentally friendly brick in the UK. Just discuss what you’re trying to achieve with our team and they’ll be happy to help.
Whether you’re building something from scratch or just doing a few home improvements, we have the cement you need. You may require a general-purpose product, or something more specialised like ‘early strength’, cold-weather working or sulphate-resistant cement. We’ll help you decide what’s the best choice for the job at hand.
Plasters & Plasterboards
No two interiors are the same, so we offer a wide range of high-quality plasterboards to meet different performance requirements for walls, ceilings, floors, partitions and protection for any type of building.
Thistle plaster products are the preferred choice for generations of plasterers, offering a full range of specific and multi-purpose solutions for all internal plastering needs and backgrounds. Alternatively, we also supply the Lafarge plasterboard range, which provides solutions for enhanced moisture, fire, acoustic, impact and thermal performance.
Sand & Gravels
Get your project off to the right start. We offer a wide range of ‘base’ aggregate products for all maintenance and construction applications – from MOT road base material to fine building sand. Our range of quality loose aggregates is available in small bags, bulk “Higgi” bags or larger quantities delivered loose to you.
Proper drainage is crucial to any site. At Higgins, you’ll find a large choice of drainage, manhole covers and septic tank sewerage systems. We can supply plastic below-ground drainage and ancillary products, as well as a wide selection of plastic ring and metal manhole covers for pedestrian and heavy-duty use. Our drainage systems are easy to install, even in wet conditions, and have been designed to ensure you can fit and test with confidence. A few of the benefits of our products:
• Durable and impact-resistant
• Lightweight, easy to handle and quick to install
• Thanks to a smooth bore pipe with longer intervals between points, there’s a reduced risk of blockage and improved flow
Every home needs adequate insulation – for comfort, of course, but also to satisfy legal requirements. We offer a wide range of energy-efficient insulation solutions to meet building regulations and reduce carbon dioxide emissions through enhanced thermal efficiency. Our roofing insulation products are suitable for above, between and below rafters, warm flat roofs, metal and concrete deck roofs and PIR-plywood laminates.
The cavity wall insulation we supply does not readily absorb water, making it suitable for damp environments. It’s light and easy to handle, yet robust and durable, and you can rest assured it will perform for the service life of the building. Our floor insulation systems are suitable for timber, concrete, beam and block floors, and for above or below ground bearing concrete slabs.
Whether you’re looking for a steel section, a support for the outer brick or an insulated cavity, we’ll give you all the guidance you need. We have an unrivalled list of lintels, in both steel and concrete, backed up by a high-quality, efficient service. If you have a precise specification you want, we can even custom-manufacture your steel lintels to match your order.
