Why Masonry?

 

We all know that masonry is durable, maintenance-free and environmentally-friendly, but in case you needed more.....

 

Masonry is the Intersection of Art, Innovation and Endurance.  Building or buying your home or business typically involves a dizzying number of options. There are countless decisions to make and preferences to consider, from floor plans to flooring, from colors to countertops. Even so, one of the most important choices facing you is also among the most basic: wood-frame or concrete masonry construction?

 

By discovering the benefits of building with masonry, you’ll quickly find that the answer is obvious. After all, your home is your shelter, protecting you and your whole family. Your business is equally important, representing your livelihood and ultimately your legacy. It’s also most likely your biggest investment or your pride and joy. Anything that important deserves the best.

With advantages like design flexibility, durability and energy efficiency –  plus resistance to mold, storms, fire and termites.

 

Savings on Insurance Costs - Masonry provides the best fire resistance of any building material because it cannot burn, melt or bend. This fact is acknowledged by insurance companies and is reflected in the premiums for insurance on the building and its contents. The use of fire resistive building materials throughout provides maximum security for future business performance. Many businesses cannot survive the devastation of a fire and the interruption to their normal flow of goods and services.

 

Savings on Maintenance Costs - A masonry building requires a minimum of maintenance primarily because masonry does not rust, shatter, warp, dent, buckle or rot, and there is no need for cleaning or repainting. Consideration of the vulnerability to damage of building walls is also important. Whether a careless fork lift operator or strong winds with hail hits the wall, or a heavy object is propped against the wall, masonry can handle the abuse.
