  • What is the difference between brickwork and blockwork?

    Many homeowners are unclear on the difference between brickwork and blockwork which can make choosing the right option for your home confusing. To help clarify things, below is a summary of each type of masonry:

    Blockwork

    A type of construction that involves the use of blocks. They’re usually made from cement or concrete and are typically larger than standard bricks. They’re also hollow, making them a lot lighter. Blockwork is generally the cheaper option with a wide variety of choices.

    Brickwork

    A type of construction that involves the use of bricks. They’re mostly made from clay and are smaller than blocks. Bricks are also heavier and often more expensive than blocks

  • What causes brick to deteriorate?

    Bricks are typically a great choice as a construction material. However, they can start to deteriorate and decay as time passes. There could be a few different reasons for this, including:

    • Moisture damage - Rainwater and leaks can cause bricks to decay and errode. This is particularly an issue if water is constantly dripping down your walls from overflowing gutters or leaks.

    • Poor quality bricks - If low quality bricks are used, or they’re installed incorrectly, this can speed up the decay process and affect the structure of your home.

    • Painting and sealing - As a material, bricks are designed to breathe (absorb and release moisture). By painting or sealing your bricks, this prevents the moisture from being expelled, leading to brick deterioration.

    Remember, if your brick wall is starting to degrade or decay, getting it repaired as soon as possible is vital. This will prevent serious structural issues from affecting your home.

  • Can crumbling bricks be repaired?

    Yes, if your brick walls are starting to deteriorate or crumble, it’s often possible to repair the damage. Our guide on how to repair damaged bricks covers making repairs in more detail, however, below is a brief summary of the process:

    1. Fix any causes of water damage

    2. Remove the damaged or crumbling bricks

    3. Remove the old mortar and clean the empty space

    4. Cover the new brick with mortar and slide into the space

    5. Add extra mortar around the brick, smoothing with a trowel

    6. Regularly mist the mortar for three days while it sets

    Brick repair can be a tricky skill to master, so unless you have DIY experience, we advise hiring a brickwork contractor for the best results. This is a great way of protecting your home from further damage and structural issues.
