Should we use clay or cement brick?
Clay bricks are manufactured when clay is mixed with water, formed into blocks, and kiln fired. Because the clay’s natural pigmentation runs throughout the brick, color is consistent. Conversely, cement bricks are formed into blocks and then color is applied as a topcoat to them. This topcoat can fade or chip over time. Clay bricks are less likely to fade and when chipped, the newly exposed surface matches the old surface.
What types of joint styles are available?
The most common styles are concave, flush, and raked. After you have selected your brick, we are happy to help you choose a joint style by demonstrating how each joint style appears with your brick. Joints filled with cement dust and polysand are also available.
