Cladding vs Brick - which is better? - blog post image


Brick or cladding – which building material is better? It really depends on the architecture and location of your home and weighing up the pros and cons of each.


  • - Brick pros: robust, fire resistant, easy to clean, abundant, can use recycled
  • - Brick cons: may not provide sufficient insulation on their own, limited colour options, mortar will suffer wear & tear
  • - Cladding pros: loads of choice in types of materials, new variations frequently introduced, quicker and therefore less expensive construction costs, multitude of colours, usually low maintenance or can be painted
  • - Cladding cons: may need to replace if repair not possible, may not be fire resistant depending on material
