J Routley Brick Services are Sydney Bricklayer experts in helping choose the look and feel you require. Bricks come in many natural textures that can set your home apart. Textures can add contrast or define a feature like an alcove or porch. Textures can bring out the natural colours of bricks.
Textures can add dimension throughout the day as the sun highlights them.
Bricks give you many many more textural choices than flimsier building materials. Here are just a few examples, from modern and sleek to more traditional quarry styles.

Wire Cut Bricks
Wire Cut bricks have straight edges with a slightly rough texture on their face.

Smooth bricks have crisp, squared edges and a very consistent texture.
Slurried bricks have a pigment on some or all of the surfaces.
Tumbled bricks have a “hand made” look, with round, uneven edges.
