What are Brick Colours?

Many people wrongly assume that in the UK, bricks come in limited colours, and that brick texture is universal across the board but that isn’t the case.

A brick can have various colours, there are three important factors that determine the outcome of what colour the brick will be. To begin with, the clay will determine the base colour of the brick. This is the colour you would see if you was to cut the brick in the half and look inside the centre of it.

Secondly, the type of sand engobes, and mineral pigments that are used to cover the surface of the brick.

And the last factor is less obvious, the kiln atmosphere. Kiln atmosphere refers to more than just temperature, depending on the clay types used, there is an ideal maximum temperature that a brickmaker will always respect.

Where are Brick Colours Used?

Because bricks poses high comprehensive strength, its the perfect durable material to use in construction and civil engineering projects as a structural element for a project, including buildings, tunnels, bridges, walls, floors, archways, chimneys, fireplaces, patios, or sidewalks.

Popular brick colours include red, white, tan, brown, orange, grey, or black, with many different variations within them as well as a wide variety of styles and cuts.

Burnt clay bricks are also known as common bricks because they are the most abundant brick type in modern construction. These bricks are used in columns, walls, foundations, and more with a wide variety of purposes.

The colour of fired clay bricks is influenced by the chemical and mineral content of the raw materials, the firing temperature, and the atmosphere in the kiln. For example, pink bricks are the result of a high iron content, white or yellow bricks have a higher lime content.

How do I choose a Brick Colour

The general rule is that mortar colour blends with that colour in the brick contrasting the other brick colours and it helps unifying the overall wall appearance.

For example, white mortar with white sand used with a white tone brick will make the entire wall look lighter.

Brick Installation

It’s not a project for the casual homeowner without handyman skills. A brick wall, which will require mortar, is a difficult project. Experts say that you shouldn’t even try to build a brick wall over 4 feet high (1.2 meters) on your own unless you are an experienced bricklayer.
