Choosing and selecting bricks for your house - Why brick is best.

Bricks have many advantages over other materials for residential home construction. Adbri’s concrete bricks are Australian made from concrete so their built to last. Adbri’s range of bricks provide peace of mind benefits for your family including the sense of security and permanency that comes from owning a hard-wearing brick home. Over the past five years, concrete bricks have become an increasingly popular choice for building new houses because they are available in a wide range of colours from white bricks, grey bricks through to black bricks, the colour goes all the way through the brick and they are environmentally friendly bricks to produce owing to the low energy input required to cure concrete bricks.

There are a number things to consider when choosing bricks for your house

  1. The design of your home – is it face brick throughout or is the brickwork used as a feature with other materials also used in the house?
  2. The brick colours and how they match your homes style – your brick home will be standing for a very long time so it’s important to make a good colour choice. Consider the colours of your roof, guttering and other façade features when picking a colour of brick.
  3. Budget and your price range for bricks – there are literally hundreds of styles and colours of bricks available and the prices for bricks varies for each of the different styles. You should ask for a quote on bricks or price guide when researching the brick choices for your build.
