So what do bricklayers like in a brick? First of all, bricklaying is a manual job so its important that bricks can be picked up and handled easily in one hand, so that cement can be laid with a trowel with the other hand. This makes the job of bricklaying quicker. But there are other considerations, depending on the nature of the job. Brick colour, density, thermal qualities, fire resistance and size can all be relevant. Often large concrete blocks are used by bricklayers for internal, unseen work. As they are larger, not so many are required so with two bricklayers on the job a wall can go up quickly. Obviously with decorative or exposed brickwork the colour or even shape will be important to create the right effect.
Found mostly in rectangular shape, the fire bricks are basically used to build the interiors of pits, furnaces and ovens. As these bricks are heat resistant, it is quite useful to build hearths in homes and other places. To make the bricks tensile and heat resistant, it is baked in clay and heated in high temperatures so that it has the capability to withstand very high temperatures. Most of these bricks contain aluminum oxide and silicon dioxide. Various types of bricks are manufactured for different purposes. Each variety has unique features, qualities and drawbacks. So it is quite necessary to identify the type of brick and its features before installing it for any purpose.
