Brick Bonds


Stretcher Bond

Strectcher Brick Bond

Stretcher bond is the commonest bond used today and the least interesting in appearance. It can be made more interesting by laying a course of different coloured bricks or to lay such bricks to form a pattern on a wall.


Flemish Bond

Flemish Brick Bond

Flemish bond consists of alternating headers and stretchers along each course with the headers centred on the stretchers above and below.


English Bond

English bond consists of alternating courses of headers and stretchers, with the alternative headers centred over and under the vertical joints of the stretchers.


American common bond

American common bond is similar to the English Bond but the courses of headers are separated by approximately five courses of stretchers.
