Brick Walls

Color bricks depends on the clay of its composition. In most cases, after firing bricks becomes a classic brick red color, it is called red. Also there is clay, and they make the bricks white, yellow and apricot colors. There are, of course, other colors, but they were obtained by adding pigments. The more voids in the brick, the wall will be warmer than out of it.

In addition, this brick is easier and the load on the foundation correspondingly less. Keep in mind when laying a brick, the solution must be more viscous, or else he will score in the blank hole and a wall of bricks will not be in such a really warm, quite the contrary. Brick is defective, if its manufacture has occurred underburning or burnout. Brick of good quality with the impact should be ringing and core should be more saturated color than the rest. E Scott Mead shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. If marriage is a mustard-colored brick, and a dull sound when struck.

Outs of the defective brick is a low frost resistance, and poor resistance to moisture. But it is worth noting that if the brick , it is believed that it will be more durable. It is worth mentioning about the lime inclusions, gost their presence in the brick does not believe in marriage. In the raw clay with limestone, in cooking bricks that crushed limestone, but there are unfortunate cases where the remains of its grain. Less of this is that these grains as if blown, it happens due to ingress of moisture. Another version of marriage – efflorescence. Outwardly appear as white spots and stains, and after laying is completed. Efflorescence occur due to migration of salts from solution, bricks, air. It is impossible to predict efflorescence will manifest or not. For their prevention help a few rules: when laying is to use a more dense solution. Do not lay bricks in the rainy season, at night, fresh clutch is closed, the solution for masonry should not be smeared on the front. Facade even possible to cover preservative. If you have efflorescence on the wall there, it's likely a year or two, they will disappear, so say the builders.
