No modern material can replace the sturdiness, durability and beauty of brickwork. Bricks are one of the oldest building materials and they are still used in many buildings which need a classic look.

We guarantee that all brickwork is carried out by trained and experienced bricklayers who have been a part of our company for many years. They have years of experience and they can create anything, using different types of bricks. They are equally skilled at using modern and classic bricklaying techniques, so we are confident that there isn’t a job which they can’t handle. Here are some of the most common bricklaying techniques:
- Stretcher Bond
Composed of stretchers set in rows and then offset by half a brick with every course. Its advantages are minimal brick waste and the fact that brick cutting is not required.
- Common Bond (American Bond)
It involves a course of full headers being inserted every six courses.
- Flemish Bond
It is created by alternately laying headers and stretchers in a single course of brick. It includes more cutting and shaping work.
- English Cross (Dutch Bond)
It is made of alternating courses between headers and stretchers, producing a solid and sturdy wall. Commonly used for bridges and other civil engineering architecture projects.
- Garden Wall Bond
It is also known as a double stretcher garden wall. It is basically a Flemish bond with two stretchers between each header.
- Stack Bond
If you are looking to really show off, this is the aesthetic bond you need. It is not a structural bond and is usually used for interior designs. All joints run vertically down the wall and all stretchers are directly centered on top of one another.
