The Rundown on Bricks


Bricks are pretty awesome.

Using bricks for outdoor projects is exceptionally popular. Bricks are sturdy, lovely, and remain one of the best ways to construct a wide variety of structures. So, as you think about your next masonry project, you may want to consider incorporating bricks into your design. Let’s check out some reasons why bricks are awesome.

Bricks are reliable

Masonry professionals have been using brick for hundreds of years and there is a reason why that is. They are sturdy and reliable. They are fire resistant, wind resistant, and all-around a very strong building material. Bricks are also good with moisture and can resist mold, bugs, and weathering. There are a ton of structures that remain beautifully intact after decades of wear and tear. Those structures can thank bricks.

Bricks are beautiful

Having exposed bricks inside of the home has come into vogue and for good reason. Exposed brick adds a certain beauty to an otherwise bland wall. The color can pop nicely without being too overpowering. Bricks also add an industrial look that many people seek. Many theatres and dance halls utilize exposed brick in their designs, so you know it’s chic.

Bricks are sustainable

Everyone seems to be going “green” these days, so finding sustainable building materials is essential for the modern masonry professional. Thankfully, bricks are already widely used and they remain a wonderfully green material. There is minimal waste product produced when making them and they can be recycled again and again. Brick is also known for their insulating properties, so they can help your home stay warm in the winter. This can help cut down on heating bills. Is there anything these little guys can’t do?
