In this way, we will not only know the approximate cost of the materials that we will need to carry it out, but we will also be able to avoid the famous theft of materials on site. Although we know that depending on the country in which we live, the bricks are different, we will try to describe the different bricks with their characteristics so that they can know them previously.

#### How many common bricks do we need in a square meter?

In our country, Argentina, is what we call common bricks to those that are of the solid type 5 centimeters high x 23 centimeters long and 12 centimeters deep. This type of brick, adding to it the thickness of the plaster, is what makes the famous 15-centimeter wall. We will need **60 common bricks per square meter** For the work.

It is known as hollow cement bricks or hollow gray bricks. They are the bricks that are in trend in any construction, even because they can be made in the same work. The most commonly used measurements of these bricks are 19 centimeters high by 39 centimeters long and the depth can be 13 or 15 centimeters. The most positive characteristic of these cement blocks is that some have a texture that allows construction without the need to render the wall at the end of the work. The amount of cement blocks we need for one square meter is **13 bricks.**

### How many bricks fit in a meter **- Variation of measurements**

These measurements were taken for the bricks most used throughout the world, remembering that the measurements may change in each of the countries. In this case the number of bricks can vary. Another reason why the number of bricks may vary is because of their joints. It usually takes 1,5 centimeters of joint between each brick but it can also depend on each builder.
