No matter what kind of home remodel or customization you are planning, masonry work can benefit you. Building with masonry materials is a centuries old tradition represented through historical structures that are still standing. Masonry can be enduring and natural, and adds value to your home, making it more earth friendly. There are a wide variety of other benefits we are going to discuss today, let’s explore.
Natural materials can aid you significantly when it comes to different areas. Most masonry materials are fire, weather, and termite resistant. Weather resistant walls mean that they can hold up to heavy heat, heavy storms and significantly cold weather. Termites won’t eat exterior walls made of masonry since they aren’t made of wood.
Masonry materials provide protection from not only weather but also from mold, fungus and rot. Due to the fact there is no wood, there is nothing to rot and masonry significantly decreases the likelihood of any buildup of fungus or mold and mildew. Protect your family from exposure to mold and mildew which can lead to certain lung problems like asthma or other problems like fatigue and throat infection.
Lower Your Bills, Increase Resale
Believe it or not, having masonry can help lower utility bills and your insurance premiums. Utility bills go up in seasons like summer and winter to keep your home a regulated temperature. Concrete block combined with insulation can help keep your home cooler, or conversely, warmer during the seasons-lowering the work your air conditioner or heating system have to do. Your insurance premiums can also benefit from masonry materials due to the high quality of the materials themselves. They provide extra security, protection and some insurance companies can offer a discount for up to 15%.
