To ensure smooth progression through every phase of your project, and results that meet your expectations, it’s important to know exactly what you want and need when it comes to masonry. As such, below, we have briefly outlined the differences between brickwork, blockwork and stonework, three services we provide as your local building company.
As a ubiquitous feature on homes not just in Leeds and West Yorkshire, but across the country, you’re likely highly familiar with brickwork. Bricks themselves come in a uniform shape and size, and their light weight means they have a lower dead load.
Bricks are easier to handle and transport, cheaper than stones and blocks, and produce thinner walls. Our brickwork contractors can also use different mortar types to suit various structural requirements.
This construction method uses larger blocks manufactured from concrete or cement. While their size varies, they’re typically much larger than a standard brick. However, they also have a hollow centre. This makes them lighter, easier to work with and improves their capacity for insulation.
The bricks we lay as a local building company in Leeds and West Yorkshire have aesthetic value, but the same isn’t true of blocks. You will most likely use them for an internal wall, retaining wall, or cover them with an outer layer, such as render.
As the name suggests, when using this construction technique, our brickwork contractors supply and lay stones, creating strong, durable and weather-resistant masonry. Of course, stone is a naturally occurring material, so it comes in a variety of textures, sizes and colours. The natural qualities of stone also make it incredibly robust, so it has fantastic longevity with little to no need for repairs and maintenance.
However, stone masonry is thick and heavy, so it can result in reduced floorspace. The stones themselves are more difficult to handle than bricks and blocks, and more expensive too.
