The Three Little Pigs” were right: brick provides superior shelter in ways other cladding materials can’t match in terms of durability, fire protection, protection from wind-borne debris and more.
Brick never needs painting, never rots, will never be eaten by termites, and will never dent or tear, homeowners will not have to pay the recurring maintenance and/or replacement costs.
Brick Builds Better Value. No other material provides as much aesthetic, protective and long-lasting value as a building clad with brick.
Unless there are architectural controls in place, homeowners are free to select any code-proofed building material, including brick. Moreover, brick blends in just about every architectural style and neighborhood setting there is. But if builders say brick is too expensive, don’t be misinformed! Brick is actually much less expensive than many homeowners are led to believe. In fact, authentic, full-size genuine clay brick is significantly less expensive than artificial (and of course real) stone, and not that much more than fiber cement. These numbers come from RS Means ® - not BIA. So if a builder doesn’t want to use brick after hearing all of this, why not?
