Brick veneer construction is one of the most convenient and fastest ways to build a home. While Perth has historically used double-brick, brick veneer construction is fast becoming the norm as a shortage of bricklayers and rising costs create the need for an alternative.
Now, more Perth homebuyers see why brick veneer is the most popular construction method across Australia. The process uses steel frames to cast the interior of the facade and bricks to cage the exterior of the property. Insulation batts and plasterboard then cover the steel frames to finish the build.
Brick and Steel Frame or ‘Brick Veneer’ is a builder and owner-friendly building method as it:
Is a more affordable option compared to double-brick building
Allows for faster construction
Is great for structural integrity
Provides opportunity for multi-storey building
Leaves space for further acoustic insulation
Maintains the same look as double-brick homes
Did you know that brick veneer is the most popular building method in Australia? And it’s fast becoming the preferred option in Perth! Our sandy soil and flat land makes the use of brick veneer to build houses a suitable choice! Unlike other raw materials such as timber and stone, brick veneer is lighter and thus reduces structural loading, decreasing the chances of movement in a home.
Compared to full masonry or double brick building where bricks hold up the house, in brick veneer construction, wood and steel frames hold up the structure and brick is layered in the exterior of the property as further structural support and layering.
This gives the property the light feeling of not being isolated and cooped up within thick walls. The cavity between layers also provides better insulation since air can pass through within the layers of brick, wood and steel, compared to full brick-building where air tends to be trapped.

Brick veneer is a method of building. It combines the familiarity of bricks on the exterior with the accuracy of steel frames on the interior.
The building boom in Perth has resulted in over 16,000 new homes to be built (based on the HomeBuilder applications). That’s a lot of homes needing bricks, and we simply don’t have enough bricklayers. Brick veneer homes can be built quicker than double brick construction, which is why more homebuyers and builders are choosing this option.
Both construction methods have their advantages. The appeal of brick veneer is that it is quicker to finish a home than double brick construction because less bricks are required. But if you want to find out what option works for you, one of our team members can sit down and discuss in more detail.
Brick Veneer homes are very stable especially given the environment in Perth. The method that Move Homes is using combines steel frames and bricks for good structural integrity.
