Cement bricks have been steadily gaining ground as the preferred construction brick. Cement bricks are very cost-effective and generally cost significantly less than other bricks. That are not only cheaper to buy but are also cheaper to build with and are fantastic for home construction, boundary walls and easy D.I.Y. projects. This cheaper cost does not come with a reduction in quality. High quality cement bricks have a strength of between 7 MPa and 10MPa.
