Burnt clay bricks are the most common brick in the United States. They are simply made by pressing wet clay into pre-formed molds to give them the desired shape and size. After being pressed into the molds, the bricks go through a short drying process before being fired in a kiln.
Burnt clay bricks in combination with concrete bricks (cmu) are used for almost all residential foundation and veneer projects. This includes masonry porches, columns, and brick fencing also. It’s what we use 90% of the time here at Four Oaks Residential
