Currently building, we are on a sloping block so we have from floor level to the roof in axon cladding. Below floor level to the ground I want to put brick facings / tiles (bricks sliced thin) on cement sheet. I have found a good brick product that will suit. We don't have footings to do real bricks so thought this was a good alternative. Have seen it done before and looks good.
The builder is worried that where the sheet and bricks meet the ground they will get wet and over time the adhesive will deteriorate and the bricks will fall off or just generally become in poor condition.
Looking for anyone's experience or thoughts and advice on trying to get this done or if I should look at a different cladding alternative.
