    Three simple steps to measure your brick?

    To be able to measure the size of your brick accurately all you need is a measuring tape and then follow these three simple steps.

    You will need to measure the Height, Width and Depth of the brick, and here is how to do this.

     

           
                 
     Height     Width     Depth

    Measuring from the top of the brick to the bottom will give you the height of the brick. Exclude any mortar when doing this.

        To measure the Width you will need to turn your tape and measure along the face of the brick either on the top or bottom it will not make a difference.
         To measure the depth of the brick you will need to measure from the face side to the back of the brick. If the brick is already in a built wall then a go to the corner and measure it at this point.
