This five-part, tongue-in-cheek video series compares the individual benefits of Bricks over Lightweight Board,
to help you make those critical material choices when building your new home.
Lightweight Board requires constant attention and maintenance, needing ongoing repainting to maintain aesthetics and durability. In contrast, Brick requires no attention at all, is durable and dependable, and will look good forever.
Lightweight Board is a short-term fad that only caters to limited designs, finishes and textures, and comes with a limited product warranty. On the other hand, Brick has enduring style and timeless charm, meaning it will look good forever. And, only Austral Bricks comes with a 100-year warranty.
Lightweight Board will find it hard to keep the noise down, with no noise cancelling properties. In contrast, Brick provides superior sound insulation, while Lightweight Board fails to reduce noise between rooms and from outside.
Lightweight Board can be combustible, meaning it will not provide sufficient fire resistance, while Brick is safe, not flammable, and non-combustible, making it perfect for Australia’s extreme climate.
Lightweight Board will always have trouble moderating indoor temperatures, which will lead to over-reliance on artificial heating and cooling. Brick, on the other hand, is a natural thermal battery that can keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Here’s our top ten reasons why you’re making the best choice with Brick.
Enduring style. Energy saving efficiency. Everlasting strength in all conditions. It’s easy to see why brick outlasts all other materials. Life is better with Austral Bricks.
