Whether it be aesthetics, environment, or personal preference, our brick masons will take all of the factors important to your family into consideration when assessing your home and recommend a brick material.
Common Materials Of A Brick Wall Repair Mason
One of the most common bricks our brick wall masons use is burnt clay brick. These bricks are pressed in a mold and fired in a kiln. These are very basic bricks. They lack aesthetic appeal, but they are easy and on the low end in terms of cost.
We can also use sand-lime bricks. This type of brick mixes sand, fly ash, and lime. Chemical reactions occur when this is mixed. The bricks are then molded by pressure. They are often chosen because they are gray instead of red, they have a uniform and smooth finish, and they are very strong when it comes to load-bearing.
Engineering bricks are some of the densest and strongest. They are formed at a high temperature. They are great when it comes to load-bearing, water resistance, and chemical resistance. They are a bit more expensive than the average brick, which is why our brick wall mason only uses them for special projects where they are either necessary or requested.
Concrete bricks are a common choice when it comes to building homes. They are great for facades and fences. They can also be highly aesthetic, especially with their ability to come in a variety of colors. Fly ash clay bricks are made of clay and fly ash. They are fired at 1,000 C. Our brick wall masons tend to use these less often as they are more fragile and less water resistant.
Why Our Brick Wall Repair Mason Stands By Brick
We recommend brick as a building material for many reasons. It allows for a variety in color and texture. It has a high compressive strength. It releases and absorbs water easily, allowing for good insulation. This helps especially when it comes to temperature and humidity control. Brick is also a safe bet in case of fire. Brick can sometimes even keep you safe from fire for up to 6 hours. Brick is also a great option when it comes to sound insulation. It usually offers sound insulation for 45-50 decibels. It is also a water-resistant building material that can stay strong for 15-20 years.
