Bricks Used by Our Domestic and Commercial Builders

From decoratively glazed bricks to fire bricks suitable for high temperatures and engineering bricks for larger civil engineering projects, various materials are available to construction companies. The ones used most often by our building contractors at Bricktec Building Ltd include:

Common Bricks

The most basic type of bricks used in construction, common bricks are typically red or brown and have a simple rectangular shape. They are versatile and widely employed for general construction, such as standard brick walls, foundations, and chimneys.

Facing Bricks

These are more visible and come in various colours, textures and finishes. They are often used in bespoke brickwork to create attractive exteriors. Weathered, rustic or reclaimed-looking facing bricks are particularly popular for adding character.

Perforated Bricks

Perforated bricks have holes running through them that improve insulation and reduce the overall weight of the brick, making them suitable for cavity wall construction in house extensions and new builds. The gaps also aid mortar adhesion, providing stronger bonds.

Hollow Bricks

Lighter than common bricks, these have hollow cavities, which also enhance insulation properties. They are used to construct partition walls, so perfectly suited for any internal structural alterations planned by our building contractors’ Reading clients.

Special Shaped Bricks

These bricks are custom-designed to fit specific architectural needs and play an important role in our new bespoke brickwork and restoration services. They allow our domestic and commercial builders at Bricktec Building Ltd to display our skills to their greatest advantage.

Sustainable Bricks

Sustainable bricks are produced in the UK using eco-friendly materials and production processes. Examples include recycled bricks incorporating reclaimed materials and low-carbon cement bricks.
