The durability of a house made of bricks always depends on the quality of the laid foundation and the strength of the walls.
At the moment there are many types of laying bricks, which differ among themselves for their intended purpose.
Among all the existing methods of brick layingThe most applicable are several. The championship is confidently occupied by classical masonry, that is, the way in which each series gets a shift in half a brick.
Spoon laying is used for constructionPiers, when facing the facades of buildings. The brick is laid horizontally, and the next row starts with halves, thereby providing a dressing. A variation of this method is the displacement of the brick by only a quarter. Here everything depends only on the preferences of the builder.
There is an option in which an "oblique" displacement of the brick is performed.
When laying clinker bricks veryThe facade, made with the help of stump walls, will look original. This method is used in the construction of exterior walls of buildings, with facing, as well as the construction of piers.
A similar method involves laying the width of the wall being erected, while the upper row entirely binds the bottom, ensuring a pretty attractive pattern and sufficient strength.
American and English ways
The combination of a spoonful method with a bouncer, with a certain change inside each row, is called "American" masonry.
A similar option with a change in the type of masonry, thenThere is a poke-spoon, the English way is considered. It is often used to build multi-storey houses, because the wall is a thick brick and a half. This type of laying involves bandaging the brick not only along the length, but also the width of the wall. As a result, it turns out to be very strong, capable of withstanding heavy loads.
Free and Gothic Way
There is a free version of the masonry - when a regular alternation of brick sides is carried out, providing a vertical arrangement of joints.
In approximately the same way, there is a cross-connection of each row, when the joints of each evenly laid row are displaced, creating a characteristic appearance of the Orthodox cross.
There is also a way of laying, called "Wild Card", which already has a name clearly hinting that it is not regular replacement of the sides of the brick.
No less popular is the Gothic version, withWhich the sides of the brick regularly alternate in rows. The joints of even rows coincide, and in odd layers they are shifted clearly to half of the smaller side of the brick. One short, as well as a pair of long sides, are replaced by rows in turn. A couple of rows of joints coincide.
