When laying bricks, the manner in which the bricks overlap is called the bond. A brick is a block, or a single unit of a ceramic material used in masonry construction, usually stacked together, or laid using various kinds of mortar to hold the bricks together and make a permanent structure. Bricks are typically produced in common or standard sizes in bulk quantities. They have been regarded as one of the longest lasting and strongest building materials used throughout history.  PowerPoint Presentation Link for type of bricks Please click here for a presentation link to types of bricks  PowerPoint Presentation Link for brick bonds Please click here for a presentation link to brick bonds
