There are many several types of bricks. Deciding which brick to use is an important consideration. The four most common types of bricks are:
1) Engineering Block – They’re not particularly attractive looking bricks but they are tenacious and solid and so very useful.
2) Facing Bricks – this is a very common type of brick which is generally used in small or medium sized projects.
3) Reclaimed Bricks – these are normally cheap bricks which you can get from other areas of the house or other demolished houses.
4) Decorative Bricks – these help to add beauty or add a classy look to existing brickwork that might look boring to you.
