Civil Engineering/Types of bricks

1) Concrete block bricks

2) Burnt bricks

suggest any other type of Bricks.

Dear Suraj

There is no strict decision about the quality of brick. Usage of bricks depends on your work. There are 4 main parameters for the bricks to be suitable:

1- weight
2- strength
3- degree of heat isolation
4- price

Your choice may differ in different situations. Suppose a burnt brick factory exists near your project. Then you may decide to use it because of the low price of shipping.
