Great sharing Shristi Nangalia as I think that people mistakenly assume brick is waterproof. However, water can penetrate and seep through to the area behind it. It is important that a waterproof barrier be placed on the wall before the brick siding is installed. There are some builders who are using bricks in their project and they are getting success. Brick needs to be installed with a drainage plane or weep holes so any water has an easy escape route. The installation will cost a little more initially, but it will avoid countless problems down the road.
