How to Choose Bricks
Here’s a few helpful tips when choosing bricks for your home.
Find a house style for you
Before selecting bricks it’s worthwhile gathering ideas on the style
of house you’d like to build, as the design can greatly influence
the type of bricks you use. Check out some examples of house
styles in Boral’s Get The Look brochure as well as brick and roof
tile colour combinations and useful building information.
Now you’ve chosen ‘the look’ you want, what’s next?
Step 1: Your home location
The location of your home will help determine the type of bricks and
mortar joints you need. Exposure grade (EXP) bricks are made to
withstand severe coastal conditions, including homes subject to air
borne salt spray. These bricks have enhanced durability ideal if your
home is located up to 1 kilometre from a surf coast or 100 metres
from a non-surf coast, on land with high saline soil, or is near a
polluted atmosphere (such as an industrial site).
General Purpose (GP) grade bricks are suited to all other
building types and locations. If you are unsure if a brick is
suitable, give Boral a call.
Step 2: Colour & Texture
The look and feel of bricks you choose will help create your
particular style of home. Boral brick colours range from light
neutral tones to deep dark shades. Brick textures include
the following:
• S
mooth bricks have a consistent texture
and almost ceramic appearance with
straight edges
• V
elour bricks have a tightly grained texture
and straight edges
1
• T
orn face bricks have a dragged or ripped
appearance across the face giving them a
weathered look.
• R
olled bricks are treated with distinctive
patterns prior to firing producing a variety
of textures.
• T
umbled bricks have a rough texture and
uneven edges which give them a rustic look.
• F
ritted bricks have a glass-like substance
melted into the surface for a mottled
appearance.
Step 3: Size
Did you know Bricks come in different sizes?
• standard 76mm high bricks (230mm long x 110mm wide)
• slimmer 50mm high
All brick sizes can be used for the entire house or in patterns,
window sills, feature walls, formal areas, fireplaces and
architectural details.
Step 4: Mortar
You may be surprised to know the colour and type of mortar
joint (between the bricks) can have a striking impact on the look
of your bricks.
Common Mortar Colours
• Natural or grey • White or off white
• Cream or buff
• Coloured mortar to match the brick colour
Common Mortar Joints
The mortar joint refers to how
the band of mortar between
the bricks is finished. Wherever
exposure grade bricks are
used, finish with an Ironed
mortar joint to minimise
erosion from salt.

energy efficient design
Building your home to be energy efficient can
be easier than you think.
Environmental impact
It’s all about taking a long-term view of our
impact on the environment. An energy-wise home
will use the best combination of sustainable
building considerations such as site orientation
(where a home is positioned on a block), wall and
ceiling insulation, ventilation and building materials
to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse
gas emissions.
Your comfort at home
In Australia, it is estimated that 38% of energy
use in homes is for heating and cooling the spaces
in which we live*. Bricks have excellent thermal
mass – the ability to absorb heat energy. This
means that with good design and planning,
building with bricks can actually make a difference
to the temperature inside your home and reduce
the need for heaters and air-conditioners. Great
news for your comfort indoors and particularly
helpful for saving on energy costs.
‘Built in’ energy savings
with solar passive design
Clay bricks used together with good design principles such as solar passive
design can make a significant difference to energy consumption used for
heating and cooling your home – energy efficiency that is virtually ‘built in’.
Note: It is recommended solar passive design features are used in
combination not individually, and they are tailored to each climate.
Solar Passive design – how it works
Orientation and solar access
Site orientation or the position of the house relative to the sun – house can
take advantage of naturally available energy.
Glazing and shading
Use of eaves and glazing window and doors.
Sealing and ventilation
Cross ventilation – with openings on both sides of the home means fresh
breezes can circulate better. Thermal mass in internal walls is still needed to
help moderate (even out) temperatures. Vents should also be installed in the
roof space to help regulate air flow year-round.
Insulation
The use of insulation to enable walls and ceilings to act as a barrier to heat
flow is essential to providing year-round comfort.
Thermal mass
This is the ability of a material to absorb heat energy. High density materials
such as bricks and tiles have high thermal mass which when used correctly
moderates internal temperatures by averaging day/night extremes.
Thermal research^ has shown clay brick to be a superior building material in
providing comfortable (warm or cool), energy efficient environments for people
to live, work and play.
