Being green is not just a trend when it comes to masonry. Masonry has been green since the dawn of time. Since brick, concrete, and stone are natural materials, there is less fabrication involved than with other materials. In addition, the natural composition of masonry materials put together into a building project end up driving energy costs down. Green for the environment and more green for your wallet.
Weather can happen anywhere, especially in the Midwest. With every season comes challenges, but none that masonry is not ready to meet. Masonry is resistant to excess water, snow, wind, heat, humidity, and even fire. Because of that, masonry projects prove a significant savings in insurance and maintenance. Masonry is truly a great investment that stands the test of time and pretty much everything else.
So what makes masonry stand out among other types of building materials? It’s actually more than just the materials, it’s everything else that goes into it, like the talent, the precision, and the dedication to a job well done. With all of these elements put together, masonry produces buildings that are more efficient, cost-effective, and durable. Overall, the lifecycle costs to build and maintain a building with masonry, are far less than cheaper materials, which degrade quickly, taking with it the beauty the project once had.
