The Disadvantages Of Brick Slips - Explained

Brick Slip CutterBrick Slips have some disadvantages that need to be considered before using them to improve the aesthetics both inside and outside of the home. One disadvantage is that they can be more expensive than conventional types of brick, or alternatives such as wall paper with prices ranging from £28/m2 to over £50/m2 for premium product.

Additionally, brick slips need to adhere well to the surface they are applied to for a smooth and stable design. If they are not applied properly, they could start to crumble, fall off or crack. Which is why we recommend using our Slip-Fix Adhesive which has been specifically designed for Brick Slips.

Lastly, if not installed properly or protected brick slips may not hold up as well on a building if it’s constantly bombarded with heavy rain or near a sea. The brick slip surface is susceptible to moisture retention, which can cause weathering over time. The moisture can also get trapped between the slip and the building’s exterior wall if the rain gets into that space.

Don’t let the above stop you.
