If you have been thinking of installing a masonry structure, then you may have already thought over the materials. And while concrete, limestone, and natural stone all have their benefits, have you considered brick? There are several reasons why brick might be the ideal choice for your masonry project.
Once brick is installed you have almost nothing to worry about. There’s no need to paint or protect against rot or warping like wood. Using brick saves you a lot more money in the long run because you won’t have to constantly maintain it over the years. The only thing you will eventually need to do is have some of the mortar joints restored if they start to erode away. But this is a quick and simple process that you can do yourself or have a professional take care of.
Brick is non-combustible and can withstand extreme temperatures, which is why it is ideal for chimneys and fireplaces. And it maintains its strength in a variety of patterns and configurations. You can choose between clay and concrete brick, although natural clay brick is the strongest. Brick masonry structures are strong enough to withstand even severe weather conditions like heavy rain and strong winds. And even on a small scale, brick is resistant to moisture so that it will stand up against household leaks. You can have peace of mind when choosing brick that is it meant to last.
Because brick comes from natural materials, it is a very environmentally-friendly choice. Constructing brick masonry structures produces minimal waste, and the brick itself can be easily recycled. And because brick is so long lasting, you will also avoid creating waste in replacements.
