Clay brick has virtually no maintenance, saves energy, reduces insurance costs, increases resale values, absorbs exterior noise and is the safest wall cladding for your home, providing better protection from fire, wind and hail. Clay brick provides superior protection for your family and home, and does so with a timeless style unmatched beauty and quality. Why choose brick? Simply put, because it’s the best!
Unlike fake materials that are engineered and altered to look like something it’s not, brick is made from some of earth’s most abundant and natural materials. Brick is also virtually 100% recyclable as it can be salvaged, crushed brick for sub-base materials, and chipped brick for permanent landscaping mulch.
Brick is one of the few materials that building codes allow to be reused in a building application when it meets the ASTM standard for clay brick. Consequently, salvaged bricks are in high demand and represent a vibrant market. Put together, it is easy to see why brick makes such a compelling case for sustainability.
Many of the most beautiful buildings and streetscapes have been clad with fired clay brick – some of them the United States became an independent nation. Because of brick's incredible longevity, flexibility and permanent color, brick looks just as great on historic colonial structures as it does on sleek, contemporary office buildings.
