Our company only uses the best brick masonry tools and equipment. For example, the post-speed lead is one of the fastest tools you can buy, and it is the easiest to use! A bricklayer invented this tool. When using the post-speed lead, the corners are straight and clean. Any application of brick veneering is best with the post-speed lead. Also, having a solid mortar trowel is vital to this operation; when repointing or tuckpointing brick, stone, or block mortar, trowels spread the mortar.
These come in many different sizes, so when we select trowels to use, we have to make sure we choose ones that are wide enough for your specific job. We guarantee our clients that we are working with the highest quality tools to deliver the most credible results possible. The tuckpointing grinder, plugging chisel and hammer, and the mortar gun are also used to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the job. Before we begin to install or repair your brick project, we make sure the brick is clean. Clean brick is pertinent to installation, so our professionals prevent mud from splashing on the brick, and we also check the building codes to make sure everything is good on that end.
There are a few different types of brick bonds that are used in brick masonry work. The most common bonds are:
- Stretcher Bond
- Header Bond
- English Bond
- Flemish Bond
The purpose of brick bonding is for strength and aesthetics. The term stretcher is used to refer to the lengthier face of the brick. When working with stretcher bond, this means all the bricks are laid in stretcher courses. It usually is only used for walls with half brick thickness. For example, we would use this type of structure for partition walls or sleeper walls.
The term header is used to refer to the shorter face of the brick. When working with header bonds, this means all the bricks are laid in header courses. It is typically used for walls with one brick thickness.
English bond is the most common bond used, which consists of an alternate stretcher course and a header course. This type of bond is used to produce one-brick solid thickness walls.
In a Flemish bond, each course in a brick wall comprises alternate stretchers and headers. Flemish bonds are split up into two categories: single Flemish bond and double Flemish bond. Single Flemish bond utilizes English bond and Flemish bond. Flemish bond is exceptionally complex and takes a large amount of skill to build up, so we do not suggest working with just anyone to do this! We always ensure the most professional services.
