Benefits of Brick​


Why should you choose brick for your home design, home makeover, fireplace, patio or walkway? Here are just a few benefits of brick:


  • Classic Beauty - 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."
  • Strength - 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.
  • Lasting Value - 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%.
  • Energy Efficiency - 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.
  • Low Maintenance - 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.

In residential construction, the addition of brick details in the design of a house improves the overall curb appeal of the home. It also gives a builder an opportunity to customize each home to the owners taste or to match a specific architectural style. Fireplaces and chimneys can provide focal points for the home while quoin corners, water tables, sills and arches can enhance the existing brickwork.


Brick Fireplaces and Custom Mantels

Brick fireplaces are one of the most popular features a home can possess. Fireplaces add warmth, coziness and visual appeal to any room. The extra warmth you gain from a fireplace can also reduce winter heating costs. Designs range from functional and traditional to contemporary and elegant, depending on the style preferences of the homeowner.
