Comparing the construction cost of concrete block, clay brick, & AAC block walls.

Let us now compare the construction cost of concrete block, burnt clay brick, & AAC block walls.



I have calculated the cost of all these types of bricks & blocks as linked below.

So, before proceeding further, you have to go through these 4 articles 👇

1. What will be the cost of block wall masonry?/Rate analysis of concrete block masonry.

2. What will be the cost of single (4") brick wall masonry?/ Rate analysis of 4" brick wall.

3. What will be the cost of 9" brick wall masonry?/ Rate analysis of 9"  thick brick wall work.

4. What will be the cost of AAC block wall masonry?/ Rate analysis of  AAC block wall work.


As the thickness of all these types of walls varies in their dimensions, we will compare their cost volumetrically.

I have extracted the data from the above articles and made the comparison in a table format as shown below.

 168.55

From the above table, you can observe that the concrete block walls are cheaper when compared to other types of wall construction.

Now, let us observe the comparative cost ratio of all types of walls, keeping the cost of concrete block construction as X (base rate ).

When we construct the wall masonry, the cost per sq ft. plays an important role to decide the total cost of the building.

So, for your reference, the comparative cost /sq ft. & their cost ratio are shown in the table format.
