Home Living : May 24th 2011
4 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, May 24, 2011 Put another brick in the wall » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING With the renewed popularity of bricks driving an upsurge in new colours, textures and sizes, you have reason to pick brick. Boral national clay and concrete marketing manager David Francis says brick is a popular choice for home owners. ''Bricks offer a vast choice of colours and textures, with a brick to suit all architectural styles. When you also consider the effect of mortar colour, architects can really get creative with brick,'' Mr Francis said. Boral suggests a five-step guide to choosing bricks. Step 1: Style Explore ideas and designs to establish your preferred house design as this will greatly influence the type of brick chosen. Popular styles include contemporary, traditional, beach and homestead. Step 2: Location Whether you need general purpose or exposure-grade bricks and mortar joints depends on the location of the property and the conditions it's subject to. It's preferable to use exposure grade bricks if the property is near the coast and could be subjected to airborne salt spray, usually up to 1km from a beach. Step 3: Colour & Texture When deciding on colour, consider all the components of the building such as the roof, guttering and fascia, as well as doors and window frames. Limit yourself to one or two trim colours and focus on texture and decorative elements to create a unique look. Remember, bricklaying styles also provide choice. Step 4: Size While the standard 76mm high brick size remains the most popular, there is a growing interest in using different brick sizes, such as slimline and double height bricks. Step 5: Mortar The mortar joint and colour can alter the appearance of bricks considerably, allowing you to achieve a relaxed light feel or a dramatic contrasting effect. The raked version is common but rolled or ironed joints complement nearly all brick and house styles. Flush joints provide a flatter look by minimising shadow.
