The benefits for choosing masonry for any living space are numerous. We have listed a few of the benefits that we feel are leading reasons as to why every home should have masonry incorporated whether inside or out.
Masonry Is A Green Material.
The manufacturing process of masonry materials is a low energy consumption process compared to the manufacturing process of many other materials. Masonry doesn’t deplete the forests, pollute the land or drain natural resources.
Stone Is Inviting.
Stone accents furnish a rich backdrop for entertaining. Imagine gatherings with family near a warm hearth or dining with friends laughing around an outdoor kitchen.
Stone Is Elemental.
It connects us to nature. Natural stone offers a variety of textures, colors and patterns that can’t be duplicated.
Stone Is Also Practical.
It lasts a lifetime, needs no upkeep, adds significant value to your home and as a design material has timeless appeal. Stone is at home within any landscaping or architectural style.
Masonry has been mankind’s number one building material ever since cave dwellers built stonewalls in front of their caves to keep out the weather and provide security. The Egyptians built masonry pyramids; the Greeks created cities and beautiful temples out of masonry. The Romans used masonry almost entirely to build their empire. The Chinese built an incredible masonry wall to keep out invaders. Even throughout the Dark Ages, masonry continued to flourish with castles and cathedrals. Masonry offers unlimited possibilities.
Whether it is exterior cladding, structural applications, interior partitions, decorative applications or paving, masonry is the one and only system that can do it all and keep on doing it decade, after decade.
