HOW TO CHOOSE BRICK POITING

The choice of brick is an investment in the future. Each brick placed in your new home will be responsible for durability and strength. Brick is one of the most ancient building materials. Of course, it has undergone improvements and modifications over its history. How to choose bricks to create a substantial house for centuries? Consider in detail the necessary parameters for ideal construction company building material.

VARIETY OF MATERIALS To begin with, we note that the colour of a brick does not affect its functionality but depends on the degree and method of firing. Although bricks seem to be the same rectangular bar, each material is designed for a specific area. The variety of materials are distinguished:
  • Ceramic
  • Silicate
  • Clinker
  • Fireclay.

CERAMIC BRICK

This type is obtained by firing clay. Ceramic bricks are versatile and can be used in laying load-bearing walls and facing. They perfectly keep heat resist external influences and mechanical damage. Ceramic bricks are considered the standard of construction due to their reliability and durability. Ceramic bricks are also produced for decorative cladding – various shades are achieved by particular firing: from ivory to dark chocolate.

SILICATE BRICK

Sand-lime bricks are created from a mixture of sand and lime using a steam press. Silicate is not so versatile, but it retains heat much better than ceramic building materials and has high sound insulation. Silicate bricks are more environmentally friendly; they do not contain harmful impurities. Due to the natural white colour, pigment is readily incorporated into sand-lime bricks to create decorative paints. This type of brick is not used for laying load-bearing walls and foundations due to its low moisture resistance, but it is perfect for building partitions and walls.

FIRE BRICKS

Chamotte brick is a refractory building material. It is used for laying out places exposed to high temperatures. Fireclay bricks form a thermal insulating film, protecting the house from direct fire or hot surfaces. Refractory bricks can withstand temperatures up to 1600 degrees Celsius without losing performance. This type of brick is used both in industrial production (for boiler houses, factories, etc.) and in everyday life for laying stoves, chimneys, fireplaces, barbecue places or baths. Due to their aesthetic appearance, fireclay bricks are also used for cladding.

CLINKER BRICK

Clinker bricks, like ceramic ones, are made by firing clay. Unlike ceramics, a minimal amount of water is used in their manufacture. This causes low water absorption and resistance to high humidity, but at the same time, bricks require additional thermal insulation. Clinker building materials are not afraid of temperature changes and retain their colour and shape for centuries. This type has many textures and beautiful colours, so it is often used in cladding and is suitable for laying walls.

TYPES OF FILLING

According to the type of filling, it is customary to distinguish between solid and hollow bricks. These species have different scopes, so the choice will be determined by the purpose of use. Solid bricks are designed to lay foundations, basement floors, and load-bearing walls, as they are not afraid of moisture. Since concrete bricks are devoid of voids, they have low water absorption and high thermal conductivity. Therefore, if the outer walls are lined with this particular type of brick, it is necessary to take additional measures to insulate the room.

Hollow bricks cannot be used to construct foundations basements since moisture that has entered the voids can deform the brick, which will lead to the destruction of structures. Hollow bricks are used to build external and internal walls partitions. Due to the high water absorption, the brick has lower thermal conductivity and does not require additional thermal insulation.

Our Projects

Why Acquire the Brick Pointing Services of the Blue Jay Builders NYC

Flush Pointing

In the flush pointing, the mortar filled and pressed into a mortar joint. After that, it is finished off flush with the edges of the bricks or stones, to give a smooth appearance.

Weathered Pointing

In Weathered Pointing the mortar pressed into a joint, and while the mortar is still fresh the top of the horizontal joints is neatly pressed back by 3-6 mm with the pointing tool.

Keyed Pointing

In these Keyed types of pointing the mortar is pressed into joints by trowel and well finished off with the face of the masonry surface. After that, the joint is presses back by small-diameter steel lengthwise (6 mm dia).

V-Grooved Pointing

V pointing are similar to keyed pointing work. The mortar filled and pressed into a joint. After that, the V-shaped groove is formed in the joint by use of V shape tool.

Beaded Pointing

In Beaded Pointing, the mortar pressed into a masonry joint and concave grooves are formed into a joint by using a steel tool having a concave shape.

Struck Pointing

In this pointing, the mortar is first filled and pressed to match the face of brick masonry work, and then the top edge of the joint is pressed inside around 10 mm compared to the bottom corner.

Recessed Pointing

These types of pointing generally not suitable for buildings in exposed situations because they do not readily shed water.

Tuck Pointing

In these types of pointing, the mortar joint is filled and pressed to the level surface of masonry. While the mortar is still fresh, grooves are cut in the mortar joint.
