ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF WALL TILES AGAINST BRICKS AND STONESOrdinarily, wall tiles are much more cheaper than bricks and stones and they are readily available at building material markets , the tilers who handle installation of tiles are also numerous hence the installation cost of tiles are very cheap between the range of N400 - N500 ,though the installation cost of tiles is also as a result of the ease at which tiles can be installed on a building wall. Also worthy of note is the fact that tile surfaces are all impervious to water thus making them good cladding materials for swimming pools and water fountains.Bricks and stones on the other hand are much more expensive than wall tiles,usually double of the price of wall tiles, the installation cost of bricks and stones is also not that cheap because it is far more painstaking and time consuming especially the grouting of those spaces between individual bricks or stones.the installation cost of bricks and stones ranges from N8000 - N1000 per square meter depending on type job location.
At this moment,You may think that tiles are all great wall cladding materials without disadvantages ,well that is totally wrong because the disadvantages of tiles are as weighty as its advantages.Tiles are cheap ,but not so durable for wall cladding,tiles are impervious to water hence they do separate from the wall after sometime making them expensive in terms of long term cost of wall cladding.Tiles are usually overly shouty and lacking in 3d breadth and character, they make have attractive colors but they are not that classy wall cladding material you ve been looking for.Bricks and stones on the other hand are usually finely porous making them not qualified for swimming pool wall cladding but very receptive to mortar ,therefore they have strong bonding strength to the wall , they do not fall off the wall .Bricks and stones are therefore considered a long term wall cladding material and they have long term durability and cost effective for wall decoration
