As for the subject of REAL Brick Flooring.
Bricks can create almost any look in your home, from casually elegant to practical and welcoming. It's easy to care for and durable. Since you can lay it in any number of patterns, you can create the right look for your home.
Brick flooring consists of thin tiles (usually 1/2" and 15/16" in thickness) that are applied to floors with mortar or other adhesive. The result is a warm-hued and natural floor that can last for many years. For the customer, a brick floor offers:
•resists wear and tear
•beautiful, rustic textures
•Not any harder to clean than a tile floor.
Brick flooring challenges include:
Interior brick flooring is made by combining finely ground clays, shale and raw materials to produce hard surfaces. The materials are pressed, cut, and fired in a kiln at high temperatures. The result is thin brick flooring tiles that have the durability and beauty of brick and the convenience of tile flooring. Most manufacturers will apply a sealant or a chemical mixture after firing to seal the porous brick surface to make cleaning easier. Most brick floors will have to be resealed after installation to ensure they are easy to clean.
A brick flooring interior can be not only attractive but also quite durable. Brick floors vary widely in hardness, depending on the actual combinations of materials that go into their production. Brick floor tiles that have been made from poorer-quality or coarser-ground materials are more porous, softer, and more likely to chip and crack. Higher-quality brick tiles have a hardness comparable to some ceramic tiles, especially when sealed or treated. In general, customers can often find brick tile floors with a Measurement of Hardness (MOH) rating that is 5 or 6.
Brick floors have been trusted throughout history as practical and durable flooring options. Bricks are in fact considered humanity's oldest manufactured building material. They have been used since 1330 BC for walls, roads, monuments, floors, and other crucial building projects. When you decide on brick flooring, you are choosing a truly historical and well-established option for your home.
Brick floors can sometimes be rough and uneven much like a slate floor. Brick vinyl flooring provides a smooth and durable surface, while still retaining the beauty of natural brick.
Despite the few disadvantages, Indoor brick flooring is still a good choice. Thin brick flooring provides beautiful and lasting floors for almost any room of the house. Cleaning brick flooring is generally quite simple, as most brick floors are treated and glazed. To clean these floors, a mop or broom is all that is needed. Brick floors can also be vacuumed. Many patient do-it-yourselfers do find that installing brick flooring is possible with a little perseverance and determination. By far the best advantage of brick floors, though, is their elegant durability. Bricks have been used on roads and have been used to create buildings. If brick can make long-lasting roads and buildings, you know they will stand up to years of foot traffic in your home.
If you have always wanted a unique, rustic flooring option, brick flooring is a great choice. The fire-proof and fade-proof brick floor is perfect for adding years of beauty to your home, while increasing its value too.
