Of course the exact amount and type of materials needed by us depends heavily on the type of fireplace we plan to build in our house, but even in case of using a fireplace insert you will need some fireplace bricks to finish the construction.
As you are probably aware fireplace bricks( also known as fire bricks )were used even in ancient times, but their mass production started about one hundred years ago.
The main difference between fireplace bricks and traditional ones is that the former type is far more resistant to heat than the latter. In addition to that fire bricks are also known for their resistance to rapid temperature changes – they won’ t spall in such circumstances, while traditional bricks would.
