Whether it’s a dream house, a suburban school, a downtown storefront, an urban hospital or a restored streetscape, nothing evokes authenticity, durability and beauty like genuine clay brick.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. The first case of COVID-19 in the United States was reported on January 21, 2020. Health and government officials are working together to maintain the safety, security, and health of the American people. As there is no vaccine or specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19, President Trump is urging all citizens to follow the President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America.
Businesses are encouraged to do their part to keep their employees, customers, and themselves health and can go here for the CDC’s resources for businesses and employers. BIA is committed to keeping members appropriately informed and advocating for the brick industry to minimize the economic impact of this challenging situation. BIA members can find resources on the members’ only section of the website by logging in here.
BIA hopes that everyone remains safe and healthy during this time and that those who are already ill make a full and speedy recovery. We look forward to a time when the virus is under control soon and Americans are fully back to work.
"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.
Genuine clay brick is made from natural materials, is inherently recyclable and can last over 100 years. If clay brick isn’t sustainable, what cladding is?
Brick builds better value. No other material provides as much aesthetic, protective and long-lasting value as a building clad with brick.
Over 70% of the brick in this country is manufactured by a BIA member, which means interested parties can learn more about brick simply by searching through our member directory.
