Welcome back to Facades World, on the day of the date we will analyze the Different types of bricks for construction and finishing that we can meet, in order to have a little more knowledge regarding this material and its different uses, thanks to which they will be able to feel more calm when using it ... let's get started!
Different types of bricks for construction and finishing
It is necessary to have the basic knowledge about the building materials that we will use in the lifting of our house, the Brick is one of the most used materials, now we will see each of them in a practical way (only those used for construction and finishing of houses), in order to adequately start the responsible self-construction that we intend to Facades World.
Types of construction bricks
to. Brick baked clay
Is brick used for multiple buildings, has no holes and is made with earth baked in ovens, its manufacture is mostly handmade.
b. Perforated earth brick
This brick unlike the first we mentioned is that having holes allow the entry of mortar or concrete, in this way the wall becomes more resistant.
c. Brick perforated at the edge
Also used in ceilings and partitions, since they are practically hollow, they reduce the load, however currently builders choose lighter materials such as technopor or polystyrene expanded when the formwork is made with reinforced concrete in ceilings.
This is a material used mostly in rustic rural homes or in single-level complexes, is made of mud dried directly in the sun, the point in favor of the adobe is that it has thermal capacity but on the other hand it is very weak in resistance, having to use other types of construction technologies to be able to maintain a safe house.
These are basically these four types of bricks used in housing construction. PFor a safe self-construction we will choose the brick baked or in the oven if it is with better perforations, with adobe there are also very creative designs of rural houses (even mud hotels) but its use demands using other knowledge and techniques to keep the house safe as the use of steel meshes and joints of wood and cables. Let's see now the part where we will use the Brick in the form of finishing as design for our house.
Decorative wall bricks
Once we have decided that a wall will have one or all of its exposed views, it is time to choose the type of brick that will constitute the wall. We will classify them in two so they can understand it more easily and we can start the construction.
to. Decorative caravista brick
Once the wall has been finished you will notice the exposed bricks that maintain their defined lines and contours, this type of brick is made so that it does not need terracing, after its placement we can even paint them with enamel to add shine or simply leave it with the texture and natural tone.
b. Rustic decorative wall brick
If we want to give our house a rustic touch for interiors or exteriors, a rustic brick will be the best option, this is characterized simply by having imperfect edges, the final finish can give the environments a unique style.
Decorative bricks for floors
The bricks that are placed on the floors have greater resistance to the transit of people but they maintain that warm finish that you are surely looking for. Mostly these floors are placed in patios, terraces, gardens and even in parks, the effect is cozy and unique.
