Why Commercial Masonry Buildings Look Better and Last Longer

Commercial masonry buildings look better and last longer than other buildings because of their materials.

If you are ready to build a new commercial building for your company or ready to update an existing location, you have to consider what type of material to use. Factors like cost, longevity, and aesthetics are important to consider, which is why masonry is an excellent choice for your commercial building projects. Commercial masonry buildings look better than the competition and last much longer. If you want an impressive style that lasts, call DelPrete Masonry today to design your building with the following advantages. 

Why Commercial Masonry Buildings Last 

Masonry is a robust material, both thick and heavy. Brick and stone can be made in a variety of shapes, and concrete can be made with different mixtures. This means that masonry can be crafted specifically to meet your needs. Masonry also adapts to the temperatures around it, which makes it energy-efficient and resistant to changes. Compare this to a material like vinyl that warps or cracks when the temperature fluctuates. If your masonry does crack from moisture or cold, it can be easily repaired

Masonry Is Timeless 

Commercial masonry buildings will always look great. The crisp, clean lines of mortar between the bricks create a sense of order and professionalism. If you select stone, you can choose unevenly cut blocks to create an appealing and dynamic surface. Masonry can come in many colors to suit your desired color scheme. 

Additionally, masonry is quite symmetrical. Each block is precisely the same size unless you choose a unique, varied look. If you maintain your masonry, it retains its bright color and bold appeal. If you want a professional, classic building that doesn’t fade away, masonry is your best option.

Keep Your Masonry In Excellent Condition 

The longevity and beauty of your commercial masonry building are best preserved through regular maintenance. Masonry is a tough material but still needs consistent care. Maintenance includes looking for cracks, areas where mortar is flaking or disappearing, and signs of water damage. Catching problem areas early is the best way to fix issues, which is why regular inspections are recommended. Most of the time, a problem can be solved with repointing.

Additionally, power washing is a helpful tool for cleaning your tough masonry materials and inhibiting mold and algae growth. The experts at DelPrete Masonry can help you determine the best detergent, temperature, and power to clean your exterior.
