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?
andmade bricks echoВ theВ bricks from
• H
centuries ago with a rough, uneven texture.
They are created in individual moulds to create
a truly individual look.
Step 3: Size
Step 1: Your home location
Did you know Bricks come in different sizes?
The location of your home may help determine the type of
bricks and mortar joints you need. Where homes are subject to
severe coastal conditions, including homes subject to air borne
salt spray, on land with high saline soil or near a polluted
atmosphere (such as an industrial site) we recommend you use
ourВ exposure grade bricks. Exposure grade bricks have
enhanced durability suited to severe conditions. If you require
further information ask a Sales Advisor or give Boral a call.
• standard 76mm high bricks (230mm long x 110mm wide)
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
theВ following:
• S
mooth bricks have a consistent texture
andВ almost ceramic appearance with
straightВ edges
• Cut 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 firingВ producing a variety
ofВ textures.

• C
oach Style bricks have a rough texture and
uneven edges which give them a rustic look.
• slimmer 50mm high bricks (230mm long x 110mm wide)
• double height 162mm bricks (290mm long x 90mm wide)
All brick sizes can be used for the entire house or in patterns,
window sills, feature walls, formal areas 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
Types of mortar joints
bricks is finished. To protect
against salt erosion in coastal
areas and where exposure
grade units may be required,
a sealed joint (Ironed/rolled or
flush) is recommended.

energy efficient design
Building your home to be energy efficient can
beВ easier than you think.
Environmental impact
�Built in’ energy savings
with solar passive design
It’s all about taking a long-term view of our
impactВ 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.
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’.
Your comfort at home
Site orientation or the position of the house relative to the sun – house can
take advantage of naturally available energy.
In Australia, it is estimated that 38% of energy use
В 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.
Note: It is recommended solar passive design features are used in
combination notВ individually, and they are tailored to each climate.
Solar Passive design – how it works
Orientation and solar access
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 asВ 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.

The strengths of double clay brick
In Western Australia we proudly build more double clay brick homes than anywhere else in Australia – homes recognised as
some of the best in the country.
And with all the benefits that double clay brick offers it’s no wonder Western Australians choose to build with double clay brick
overВ some other building materials.
With Boral Bricks’ range of sizes, colours and textures, you can see why it is hard to beat clay brick.

Important Information
General
Bricks
Safety Information. We have safety information sheets providing details
on brick cutting, cleaning, safe storage and movement of bricks and
pavers. Ask our Sales Advisors for more information and leaflets.
Brick Face. Standard Face Bricks have only one purpose made face,
except �Handmade’ which is produced with two purpose made faces.
Ordering Product. When ordering product, we recommend they are all
delivered at the same time to ensure colour consistency as colours will
vary within and between batches.
Country Orders. Bricks and pavers can be double strapped, packed
and strapped onto pallets and/or shrink wrapped for country cartage on
request. 48 hours notice required. Price on application. Note: Clients are
reminded that when picking up product ex works, vehicles must have
side gates or mesh. Mesh can be purchased from Boral Bricks.
Product Inspection. We strongly recommend at all times there be careful
inspections and supervision of all bricks delivered to ensure satisfactory
results prior to and during installation. Any complaints regarding product
should be directed to the place of purchase prior to laying.
Colour Variation. Products on display are examples, variation will occur
naturally within a production run and with each production run of products.
Chipping and Breakage. Some minor chipping and breakage can occur
during the delivery, off loading and laying of products. It is recommended
that this product be used for cuts and infill’s.
Score Marks. Score or drag marks may occur during the face texturing
and manufacturing process. The marks are evident on all similar textured
or mexicut type brick lines as vertical lines. During the manufacturing
process excessively deep and wide drag marks are removed, however
minor drag marks are not. These minor �drag marks’ are part of the
product and do not detract from the overall appearance of the completed
wall when laid.
Sizing. Product supplied is within the dimensional tolerances specified
in Australia/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4455. For further information
please contact Boral Bricks. Sizes and number per square metre are
nominal only and subject to variance due to installation technique,
product colour and size variation through manufacturing processes.
Please consult your Boral Bricks Sales Advisor if mixing various colours
into patterns.
Colour Blending. For the best colour blending results, blend your bricks
from various packs as you lay. Ask our Sales Advisors for more information.
Loose Loading. Load restraint laws restrict what and how we load loose
product into vehicles. Please check with a Sales Advisor for further details.
Trailer Weight Restrictions. Due to weight restrictions your garden trailer
may not be suitable. If your trailer is not marked with load specifications,
you can only load a maximum of half a pack of face brick. Suitable trailers
are available for hire from Boral Bricks.
Cutting. When cutting products, please ensure that the product is fully
wetted (soaked with water), to reduce the chance of discolouration from
cutting slurry entering the product surface. Similarly, ensure all slurry is
washed from any cut product before laying. Ensure that no cutting slurry
falls on the surface of product already laid. Please refer to www.boral.
com.au on Cutting Procedure for further information or enquire with a
sales advisor.

Solids. Variations in colour may occur between solid and cored face
bricks of the same name.
�Handmade’ Bricks.
•To maintain the traditional character of hand­made bricks, they will vary
in size and colour in all dimensions.
•When using �Handmade’ bricks within 1km of the sea we strongly
recommend that flushed or rolled joints be used.
•We invite you to personally select from our range of �Handmade’ bricks
at the Middle Swan Selection Centre and Yard, as each firing creates
a very individual look. Our Sales Advisors will be pleased to help you
select bricks for your project.
•Handmade bricks are manufactured to sizing class DWø.
Utility Bricks. Not all utility bricks are suitable for external use, we
recommend you discuss applications with your Boral Bricks Sales
Advisor. Please note all utility bricks are not colour specific.
Architectural Shapes, Custom Colours. Special shapes, squints,
sill bricks, utilities and custom colours are available subject to quantity
required, scope of a project and availability of clay and materials. Ask for
information today.
Masonry Blocks. All concrete masonry products shrink over time and
allowance for this must be included in the building design.
For unreinforced walls using concrete masonry product, control joints
must be incorporated at centres not exceeding 6 metres. Please refer to
our Sales Advisors or AS3700 for further information.
Certified Strength Bricks. For specialised building projects Boral Bricks
produce a range of certified strength bricks – details of specifications and
costs are available on application.
Mortar Mix Recommendations for Concrete Masonry.
M3 Applications (as per AS3700)
Subject to non-saline wetting and drying – General Purpose
1 Cement : 1 Lime : 6 Sand or,
1 Cement : 5 Sand – requires the use of methyl cellulose
water thickener.
M4 Applications (as per AS3700)
Subject to saline wetting and drying – Exposure
1 Cement : 0.5 Lime : 4.5 Sand or,
1 Cement : 4 Sand – requires the use of methyl cellulose
water thickener.
Note: Please be aware that the sand used in mortar is sourced from
different locations. This may result in a difference between the mortar
colour of your new home and the mortar colour of product displayed at
our selection centres. Please ensure you discuss this important factor
with your builder.
Two Storey Projects. For two storey projects Boral Bricks can block
stack face bricks on site, and later lift them onto the first floor slab if
possible. Charges apply. We recommend all bricks be delivered at the
same time to ensure colour consistency between both storey’s.
Brickwork by the Coast. To achieve maximum protection in coastal
areas, a sealed joint (flush or rolled) with an approved damp proof course is
recommended. To ensure the best possible performance of any brickwork
in severe marine environments, exposure grade units are required.
Please consult your Boral Bricks sales office if more information
is required.
Damp Proof Course (DPC). It is imperative that adequate damp proof
course is installed to protect the brickwork from excessive ground salts
and moisture. Damp proofing in the external leaf of masonry, piers and
in garden walls is important to ensure that the bricks maintain their
appearance. The damp proof course must be installed correctly and
above ground level to ensure it functions correctly.
Cleaning
High Pressure Water Warning. The use of high pressure water cleaning
is NOT recommended as it may damage the face of brickwork, clay and
masonry paving, window frames and erode mortar joints.
Acid Warning. Chemicals used to clean products are dangerous.
Please ensure you adhere to all safety directions. Ensure that no acid
based products are used on concrete or masonry products.
Staining. Occasionally various types of stains, blemishes or efflorescence
may become visible after the completion of the works. Typically this forms
on the surface of porous building materials or coatings such as bricks,
pavers, mortar and concrete.
Efflorescence. A white deposit known as efflorescence may sometimes
appear on any concrete or masonry product. Efflorescence appears due
to the migration of salts via evaporation to the surfaces of the brick.
This is a temporary effect as the bricks acclimatise to their new environment.
To remove efflorescence and other forms of staining please refer to our
brick cleaning information sheet or refer to www.boral.com.au for
further information.
Vanadium. On occasion yellow/green staining may appear on cream
coloured clay bricks. This is known as vanadium staining. This staining
is a natural by-product of clay products and is not harmful. The stain may
appear following rain/water application or when exposed to an acidic
environment. The stain will usually weather away, however for quicker
removal please refer to our brick cleaning information sheet.
Further Information. For more information, please refer to
www.boral.com.au, brick cleaning information sheet, or you can discuss
your requirements with your local Boral Bricks Sales Advisor.
