New Jersey Brick and Block Work
Statistically, almost 70% of all self-builders still favor the traditional brick and block method of home building. A block built internal skin and cavity is followed by a brick external facing – this is called a wet brick and block build. There is still much debate from those who favor timber, arguing that it is both faster to erect, cheaper and thermally more efficient, but the statistics speak for themselves. New Jersey brick and paving contractor, Hub City Construction will be able to advise potential home builders when it comes to making the right building choice.
Brickwork usually consists of two or more layers of stretcher bricks which run horizontally, bound together with header bricks running transverse to the wall. Each row of such bricks is known as a course. There is a wide selection of bricks available which allows much variety in the final product. If desired, surface treatments can result in an antique look. Your brickwork contractor will be able to guide you in making the correct decision for your project.
When it comes to cinder concrete blocks (breezeblocks) or ordinary concrete blocks, these are much larger than standard bricks which makes them much faster to lay as a wall. They are often used as the structural core for veneered brick masonry, or on their own to build factory, garage or warehouse walls. They can be stuccoed as a decorative surface. They can also be colored, stained or painted.
