Traditions & Benefits of Masonry
Traditions and benefits of masonry.
The world’s most beautiful homes are built with brick. Nothing else can match its classic style and elegance. Building with brick says, “You have arrived.”
Brick is one of the world’s oldest building materials. It is pest and weather resistant, and it’s fireproof. Brick homes built hundreds of years ago are still standing, and look as distinguished today as they did the day they were built.
Brick’s beauty and practicality are always a plus when you resell. In real estate advertising, if a home is made of brick the ad always mentions it, because brick offers a selling advantage. On average, a brick exterior enhances the resale value of your home by 6%.
Brick’s exceptional “thermal mass” means that it absorbs heat and slows down heat transfer. In summer, brick slowly absorbs heat from the sun and keeps your home cooler during the hottest part of the day. In winter, the brick on your house holds the house’s heat longer, keeping you warmer.
Brick never needs to be painted and never rots, fades, warps, burns, dents, tears or becomes brittle. It’s one of the most enduring building materials known, and you don’t have to do a thing to keep it looking beautiful.
