What Is Brick?
The brick is a type of building material used to create walls, pavements, and other elements when talking about masonry construction. Basically, the term brick refers to a unit composed of clay; however, now, it used to designate any units in rectangular shape laid in mortar. A brick can also be composed of clay-bearing soil, sand, and lime, or other concrete materials used for construction.
It is produced so many classes, types, materials, and sizes, which differ with country and years, and it is being produced in bulk. There are two main or basic categories of bricks, and they are fired and nonfired bricks. Also, a block is similar in term and is referring to a rectangular unit of a building composed of the same elements, but this one is much larger than a brick.
Types of Bricks
There are hundreds and hundreds of brick types. They are named for their use, size, origin, texture, and forming method.
- Extruded. Made by being forced through an opening in a steel die, with a very consistent size and shape.
- Wire-cut. Cut to size after extrusion with a tensioned wire which may leave drag marks.
- Molded. Shaped in molds rather than being extruded.
- Machine-molded. This clay is forced into moulds using pressure.
- Handmade. Clay is forced into molds by a person
- Dry-pressed. Similar to soft mud method but starts with a much thicker clay mix and is compressed with great force.
Regardless of the modern tools and equipment available today, bricks will always be part of every construction scaffold. A useful and essential material in terms of architecture.

Advantages of Bricks
- They enhance the thermal mass of the building, giving boost in comfort in the summer heat and winter cold and can also be ideal for passive solar applications.
- They do not require painting and they can provide a structure with reduced life cycle costs. Though sealing will reduce potential spalling due to frost damage, still they resist heat and will provide good protection against fire.
- Their appearance is well crafted and can share an impression of solidity and permanence.
- They are also resistant to cold and moist weather conditions and enables the construction of permanent buildings in areas where the climate is much harsher.
