Masonry buildings have been proven to be up to 13% more energy efficient than those built using other materials such as stucco or siding.
Brick provides significant energy savings by reducing temperature fluctuations and keeping homes cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Recent studies show that 89% of homeowners prefer a home built with masonry, with masonry homes selling on average for 6% more than comperable homes.
Brick masonry has a 100-year expected lifetime, but in many cases there are brick homes built more than 100 years ago still looking great today.
Masonry does not burn, produce toxic smoke and maintains structural integrity.
Harsh winter and summer climate can stress many building materials, while masonry absorbs heat and releases it over time.
