Brick has been a building material for years and years. It has been used for everything from castles in the middle ages to trendy nightclubs in the millennium. Today brick is considered a high end building material so it tends to give a project an air of sophistication and permanence.
Though working with real brick has quite a few drawbacks:
- You really need to know what you’re doing if you plan on building with brick. There is a lot of weight involved and if you don’t have everything fitting together just right, it will all come tumbling down.
- It is not a one man job. Consider all the things you have heard are”heavy as a load of bricks” and then consider having to literally cart bricks around all day while you build a wall. You’ll need a few people to help out if you want to avoid muscle strains, injuries and exhaustion.
- It takes a lot of different tools to do it right. If you are going to measure and cut the bricks to fit together correctly, you need an impressive array of specialized tools.
- Bricks are expensive. Just like anything else, perception is part of the value. Since brick is durable, long lasting and it is seen as being a high end material, it costs a lot of money.
