Buff bricks are a specialist brick type departing from the traditional red/brown appearance of traditional bricks. Buff bricks are typically available in yellow, brown, or earthy tones, forming a warm hue suited for residential facades, cladding, or internal walls. Buff bricks can vary widely in texture, size, and finish depending on the manufacturing process, from smooth to drag-faced or creased. Like most brick types, buff bricks are popular in architecture and construction due to their durability, standard sizing, and thermal properties.

This texture uses a common or American bond. A true common bond contains between three and nine stretcher courses for every header course however the total number of sretchers can be adjusted. A bond with a single stretcher course for every header course is traditionally called an English bond while a bond with five stretchers for every header is known as Scottish bond.

This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
