Facts About Masonry!
Manorville Masonry | Islip Backyard Repair
Masonry is a timeless and honored art form that dates back thousands of years. The pyramids of the Egyptians, the cities and temples of the Greeks, the massive empire of the Romans: every great civilization has used brick to build and shape their lives. Reliable and durable, brick is one the most functional and versatile materials available today. Masonry work is available in a wide range of colors, textures, styles, and finishes, and wonderfully suits just about any building or property. We’ve got a few facts about the value and benefits of masonry.
Environmentally Friendly and Green: Masonry is an ecologically responsible practice. Recognized by many “green-built” government programs, masonry often results in tax breaks and permit fee savings for the builder. Masonry does not deplete limited resources such as timber.
Durable and Resistant: Brick masonry incorporates non-combustible materials, making it extremely fire-resistant. It is weather resistant, holding up well in heavy storms and extreme temperatures. It is also termite-resistant and not susceptible to mold, fungus, and other damaging forms of rotting.
Insulation and Sound-Proofing: Masonry provides an effective noise barrier, blocking out sound much better than other building materials. A home built with masonry is quiet and peaceful.
Lower Utility Bills: With masonry, your home stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. As a superior form of insulation, masonry work allows for reduced electricity consumption and lower utility bills.
Nearly Maintenance-Free: Masonry is one of the easiest materials to maintain over the years. It will never need to be re-painted or stained, and is virtually maintenance-free.
Enhanced Resale Appeal and Value: Masonry homes are prized for their high quality and low maintenance needs. Studies have shown that masonry homes provide a greater resale value when compared with homes built by other means of construction.
