Benefits of building with brick in Texas

Texas Brick Council

Many of the leading brick manufacturers and distributors have teamed up show Texans the beauty and benefits of building with brick. On average, brick homes have higher resale values and lower insurance rates. Not only does clay brick provide superior protection from the elements, brick is energy efficient, sustainable, and built to last generations.

Build a home that works for you, not the other way around!

clay brick is timeless
Brick houses require minimal maintenance over the decades and will never fade in color, unlike other building materials that regularly need replaced and repaired.

Clay brick also helps to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, improving energy efficiency up to 26% better than fiber cement, vinyl, and EIFS (synthetic stucco).

Speaking of saving money, on average, the national construction cost of a four-sided clay brick home is 23% cheaper than stone, 6% cheaper than stucco. When you add in the benefits of building with brick, other building materials simply can't compete.
