Solid brick masonry is made of two or more layers of bricks with the bricks running longitudinally (called “stretcher” bricks) bound together with bricks running transverse to the wall (called “header” bricks). There are many different types of bonds that can be used to reinforce the brick.

Brick veneer construction has strength imparted by a framework of wood or a rough masonry wall of other material over which is placed a layer of bricks for weatherproofing and providing a finished appearance. The brick veneer wall is connected to the structural walls by brick tie metal strips, which insures the structure. Veneered walls are often superior to solid brick walls because the core can be given characteristics different from that of the masonry exterior.
