PropertyAAC BlockRed Brick
Structural CostSteel Saving Upto 15%No Saving
Cement Mortar for Plaster & MasonryRequires less due to flat, even surfaces & less number of jointsRequires more due to irregular surface and more number of joints.
BreakageLess than 5%Average 10 to 12 %
Construction speedSpeedy construction due to its big size, light weight& ease to cut in any size or shapeComparatively slow
QualityUniform & ConsistentNormally varies
Fitting & ChasingAll kind of fitting and chasing possibleAll kind of fitting and chasing possible
Carpet AreaMore due to less thickness of walling materialComparatively low
AvailabilityAnytimeShortage in monsoon
Energy SavingApprox. 30% reduction in air-conditioned loadNo such saving
Chemical CompositionSand/Flyash used around 60 - 70 % which reacts with Lime & Cement to form AACSoil is used which contains many inorganic impurities like sulphates etc. resulting in efflorescence
