    Choosing house extension bricks


    My partner and I are interested in developing a detailed design for a house extension. What are some of the different types of bricks we could feature?

    "There are alot of different types of bricks, with their colours and shapes, I would recommend that you go onto the internet and have a look at some ibstock bricks or try Marshals."

    "There are many different types of bricks that are available to help you with your extension but you should consider your existing property before you decide to make sure that it is matching to your needs."

    "What kind of house is it? Is it terraced or detached or semi or bungalow how many bedroom are in it?
    The bricks are all standard sizes but colours vary and you can even have them made for you or copy a brick that you want.
    What sets the bricks apart which is all about ascetics is the brick bond in which they are formed in a row eg half bond or quarter bond and Flemish bond is the best looking and most used."

    "You can get smooth face bricks or rough face bricks. Also different colours of bricks from yellow and red to dark blue/black light and dark colours.
    You can make designs in the wall with different colours of bricks, can also have bricks sticking out 20mm from the rest of the wall to make the design look more 3D"
