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.
"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.
Brick doesn't rot, dent or need to be painted, and it will never tear or be eaten by termites. Besides its enviable durability and strength, brick’s modular units and variety of shapes have resulted in beautiful structures in just about every architectural style.
