People use clay bricks to construct surfaces like the fire-place, remodel, or build a new home. This material is widely used thanks to its wide-ranging benefits. Firstly, the different colours and shades of clay bricks don’t fade after years of use.
This is mainly because clay bricks emanate from naturally occurring materials. Another benefit is strength. Some types of clay bricks last long and are stronger than concrete. Since the clay gets fired at sky-high temperatures during the brick-making process, the final product is noncombustible. This is why clay bricks offer excellent fire protection. They also deter insects, minimize mould growth, and provide superior moisture control. If you live in highly windy areas, clay bricks save you from wind-blown debris.
What about the cost of maintenance? Maintaining a structure made of clay bricks is quite cheap. Clay bricks are long-lasting and don’t wear out or rot. What’s more, they don’t need any painting. The various shapes and colours that come with clay bricks give your new structure a modest yet natural look.
Bernardi Building Supply sources all its clay bricks from trusted brands only. For years, we have fostered strong relationships with our suppliers to ensure our customers get the best. Trust us to supply you with the finest clay bricks in town.
Just as their name suggests, firebricks are for lining the walls of kilns, furnaces, fireboxes, and fireplaces. They withstand extremely high temperatures way better than normal bricks. What’s more, firebricks have a low thermal conductivity which makes them quite energy efficient.
Still, different suppliers provide dissimilar grades of firebricks. This is why you need to get firebricks from trustworthy dealers. With our high-quality firebricks you benefit from:
- Using less firewood
Being poor thermal conductors means that our firebricks have better heat retention capabilities. As such, you need less firewood (per session) to heat your space. This, in turn, saves you unnecessary costs.
- Little to no maintenance
Firebricks feature a strong, durable material that doesn’t easily crack or become brittle. So expect to spend less on maintenance compared to normal bricks.
- Aesthetic appeal
Firebricks come in a variety of colours and designs. Therefore, no matter what your preferences are, you’ll get something at Bernardi Building Supply to make your kitchen or fireplace look elegant.
BBS supplies many types of firebricks including clay firebricks, high duty firebricks, insulating or low-duty firebricks, and dense bricks. Talk to us now if you have any queries or concerns.
BBS supplies stone masonry products for all kinds of masonry work. As you know, stone blocks are usually rough or dressed. Dressed blocks are what most people use indoors, around corners, and window jambs. In essence, suppliers refer to this type of masonry as ashlar masonry.
Rough stone blocks are used in rubble masonry. If anything, you can lay both ashlar and rubble masonry in coursed rows (of even height), though most stone masonry remains ‘uncoursed’. Some of our most popular stonework products include:
- Slipform stonemasonry
This is a hybrid wall made up of mortar and stones built up together (in courses) with reusable slip forms. Slipform stonemasonry is typically a cross between a veneered stone wall and a traditional mortared stone wall.
- Natural stone veneers
Stone veneers are mostly for decoration and not for load-bearing purposes. At Bernardi Building Supply we offer stone veneers for placement over cast-in-place, tilted-up, or CMU concrete walls.
- River rock stones
Many people use river rock stones as a veneer for their concrete walls. Take note that this material isn’t great for solid masonry as it lacks intrinsic structural strength and requires a lot of mortar. Nevertheless, BBS has smooth oval-shaped river rock stones for sale at affordable prices.
