DISADVANTAGE OF BRICKS MASONARY OVER STONE MASONARY


1. Strength of brick masonry is less than that of stone masonry.
2. Durability of brick masonry is less.
3. Brick masonry needs plastering and plastered surface needs colour washing.
Stone masonry don’t need them and hence maintenance cost is more in brick
masonry.
4. Brick masonry absorbs water and there are possibility of dampness. There is no
such problem in stone masonry.
5. More architectural effects can be given in stone masonry compared to that in
brick masonry.
6. Stone masonry gives massive appearance and hence monumental buildings are built in stone masonry.
