Modular brick are among the most common types of brick in use, as they are designed to offer a wider range of bond patterns. Designers can create more efficient designs and layouts that minimize the number of brick that need to be cut in order to accommodate the design parameters. Size is 3 5/8"W x 2 1/4"H x 7 5/8"L
Queen size brick is a good example of how brick size can offer substantial cost savings. A square foot of wall requires only 5.76 queen size bricks versus 7.85 modular size bricks. The larger faced queen size brick also requires less mortar and reduces the installation time. The average queen size brick weighs about 1/4 pound less than a modular size, which is easier on the mason and can significantly reduce shipping costs. The larger face area of a queen size brick also offers the buyer a premium oversize look. Switching from modular size to queen size can result in a wall cost savings of 15 percent or more.
