Put simply, bricks are regarded as some of the strongest and longest lasting materials in the construction industry. For thousands of years they have been used to make everything from stupas (symbolic religious mounds) to churches and towers as well as domestic properties. Indeed there are structures from ancient Roman and Greek times made from bricks which are still standing today – which is testament to the durability of them as building materials.
Bricks come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can also be made from a number of materials and are typically bound together using mortar. Clay bricks are the most common type and can be made by several different processes including a dry press and extrusion. More recently companies have started to stock bricks made from things like cement.
Bricks have a number of properties which make them so popular in the construction industry. As they are relatively small they are versatile enough to be used in various different building designs. In other words they can be used to create structures of interesting shapes such as arches. Bricks are also naturally water resistant so usually rainwater cannot soak through to the interior. They are much less vulnerable to fire than wood so it is no wonder they are so popular.
