Common Bricks

What are common bricks?

The common brick is the most used material in masonry. It’s a brick made from natural clay or concrete without any special surface treatment. Common bricks are not designed to offer any visual appeal. They are designed to act as a substrate in the case of stone cladding, as well as provide structure and durability.

Where are common bricks used?

Typically, common bricks are used for everything from piers or footings below floor level, internal walls, retaining walls, fences, outdoor garden projects and fence piers. Most often, they require plastering, rendering or painting. These days, common bricks are made for specific purposes such as rendering, painting or bagging.
