ADVANTAGE OF BRICKS MASONARY OVER STONE MASONARY


1. Since shape and size of bricks are uniform, it do not need skilled labour for the
construction.
2. Bricks are light in weight and hence handling them is easy.
3. Bricks are easily available around cities and their transportation cost is less
because their weight is less. Stones are to be brought from quarries which are
located only at few places.
4. It is possible to use all types of mortar in brick masonry. For unimportant
buildings even mud mortar can be used.
5. Thinner walls can be constructed with bricks but it is not so with stones.
