Brick Masonry Bonds
There are different types of bonds that are used for brick structures. The different types have different aesthetic appeals and are used in different scenarios:
- Stretcher Bonds – The stretcher bond is the simplest method as the bricks are laid and set in a horizontal pattern.
- Header Bonds – This type of bond involves overlapping headers and is typically used for curved brick structures.
- English Bonds – The English bond combines alternating stretcher and header patterns.
- Flemish/Dutch Bonds – This also uses alternating patterns of stretcher and header bonds; but with stretchers sandwiched between headers to give a checkered appearance.
Why Choose Brick Masonry?
Brick holds many advantages over other building materials. For one thing, it will not burn up in a fire, and in some cases may cut your fire insurance rates in half. Brick is also not susceptible to warping or rusting like wood and metal. While painting is an option, you don’t have to paint brickwork or keep up with new coats as brick naturally retains its color for many years. Lastly, many people simply prefer the aesthetic of classic brick masonry.
