How Much Does Brick/Cladding Cost?

Brick is the single most preferred exterior material across most of the Indian States. And for good reason Brick Cladding / Brick Tiles has unlimited design possibilities, brick dramatically increases a home's value, and it outperforms every other exterior building material from a maintenance and an investment viewpoint.

Bricks are classified in different ways depending on their color variation, strength, firing, absorption and extrusion level.

Also if the whole exposed brick is used the masonry should be very skilled as there shall not be any chances of double layer since plaster won’t be used. At Bhakti we suggest the cladding is the most suitable way to give a exposed brick finish. Also the advantage is its easy to install and many varieties and textures can be obtained.
