Thin bed "mortar"

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Been looking into thin bed joints for my brick facade, I think with uniform bricks it will look superb.

 

Now this is a long shot, but it would be great if people have experience or any input to this. 

 

There are a few solutions offered on the internet, from no viable joints to traditional thin mortar joints.

 

The thinnest results come from using special bricks or using a glue.

 

One of the bricks I have seen

Other solution is to go with the traditional method. Any input would be appreciated as I don't think this is very common, and it could become a total nightmare!

I also read your post on white bricks, so I can see where you are with this.  Just bear in mind that if you do anything other than standard it will costs £££s and will look crap if it is not done well.  I am currently looking at a 1990s building that has used coloured mortar and the batches don't match, so there are bands of brick which really stick out.

 

Have a look at https://www.brick.org.uk/archive/brick-awards-2017/ and download the pdfs for inspiration.
