Benefits of Masonry

Long-lasting strength- Masonry structures are known for unrivaled durability. The use of heavy-duty materials like brick, stone, and concrete ensures fights against deterioration. Overtime, all man made structures will deteriorate. The characteristics of masonry combat time, weather, and environmental factors that typically break construction materials down. Investing in good masonry work ensures a long-lasting, sturdy structure that will be around for generations.

Fireproof Resistance- One of the key safety advantages of masonry is its natural fire resistance. Masonry materials such as brick and stone do not burn, making them an ideal choice for structures where fire safety is a priority. This inherent fire resistance provides valuable protection to your property and its occupants.

Cost-Effective Insurance Rates- Due to its fire resistance, termite resistance, and overall durability, masonry construction often has lower insurance rates than other alternatives. Many insurance companies recognize the safety and reliability of masonry materials, resulting in cost savings for property owners.

Enhanced Insulation- Masonry offers excellent insulation properties, contributing to energy efficiency in buildings. The high thermal mass of masonry materials helps regulate indoor temperatures, reducing the reliance on heating and cooling systems. This results in energy savings and increased comfort for occupants.

Versatile Design Options- Masonry provides unparalleled design flexibility. The versatility of brick, stone, and concrete allows for a wide range of styles and creative expressions. Whether you prefer a classic, modern, or customized design, masonry can bring your vision to life.

Termite-proof structures- Unlike wood, masonry materials are resistant to termite infestations. Termites can wreak havoc on traditional wooden structures, causing extensive damage. Opting for masonry construction mitigates termite-related issues and ensures the longevity of your building.

Increased Property Value- While the initial costs of masonry installation may be slightly higher than some alternatives, the long-term benefits far outweigh the initial investment. The durability and low maintenance requirements of masonry structures result in cost savings over the life cycle of the building. Masonry structures have undeniable visual charm as well, so the curb appeal alone will boost the value of your property. 

Structural Integrity- Masonry construction is synonymous with structural integrity. The use of brick, stone, and concrete materials installed correctly results in structures that can withstand various loads and stresses. Whether it’s a wall, foundation, retaining wall, or archway, masonry will enhance the structural integrity of your build. 

Eco-Friendly Construction- Masonry is an environmentally safe construction option. The use of natural materials, such as stone and clay, minimizes the environmental impact of construction.The durability and longevity of masonry structures contribute to sustainability and reduce environmental impact. Production requires less energy than many other building materials. Additionally, if demolition is necessary, the masonry materials can often be repurposed for something else. 

Reduced Sound Transmission

Brick, stone, and concrete masonry are dense and solid, which helps reduce the transfer of sound. This makes it an excellent choice for buildings where noise reduction is important, such as homes, schools, and commercial spaces. You can have a better quality of life by enjoying the quiet and peaceful environment that masonry provides.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different kinds of masonry materials?

Brick– Most people are familiar with the timeless look of red brick masonry. Bricks have a rectangular shape and are made up mostly of clay. They also include other materials like lime, sand, and concrete. There are several steps to the production of clay which include excavating clay deposits from the ground, preparing the clay through weathering, molding, and drying. The final steps include firing the clay in kilns at very high temperatures and then letting them cool. Brick mason contractors then lay the bricks by carefully planning out reference lines, corners and the staggered pattern. Bricks are bonded together using mortar, which is the compound that you see between the bricks when you look at them. During the bricklaying process, the bricks are also tied to the wall to add stability and strength to the structure. Fun fact: bricks have been used for architecture for thousands of years with early forms of brick architecture going all the way back to ancient Mesopotamia around 4,000 BC. 

Natural Stone– Another timeless architectural marvel, natural stone masonry involves the use of granite, slate, sandstone, basalt, limestone, and other stones that can be excavated from the earth to make all sorts of beautiful creations including structures, walls, and many other decorative residential and commercial features. Natural stone is mined from quarries and cut to manageable shapes and sizes. Stonemasons then use their skilled craftsmanship to carefully plan the layout of the stones and bond the stones together using mortar. There are many different finishes including sealants, polishes, and even paint, that can be applied depending on the look you are trying to achieve. 

Veneers– stone veneers are thick layers of natural or manufactured stone. Veneers are cut to a uniform thickness so that it can be easily anchored to a wall. While they offer protection to a wall, stone veneers are generally for decorative 

purposes. The benefit of veneers is that they are much lighter than using individual stones making their application more versatile. Manufactured stone veneers are made from cement and other aggregates and then they are painted to resemble natural stone. Brick veneers are also commonly applied to structures.  

Precast concrete– Precast concrete is manufactured before it gets to the construction site. Typically the concrete is cured in molds that produce the desired shapes.  Precast concrete is used for a very wide range of commercial construction applications such as bridges, tunnels, beams, columns, walls, manholes, schools, and buildings to name a few. It is also used for common residential applications such as paver patios, driveways, retaining walls, and block foundations. Precast concrete offers many advantages including efficiency, durability, versatility, and ease of installation. 

How is masonry different from concrete?

Concrete and masonry are terms that are sometimes used interchangeably. Often, companies offer both concrete and masonry services just like we do. However, masonry and concrete are different in several ways. Concrete is a mixture of cement and other aggregates. It is often poured into a form that concrete contractors build to maintain the shape of the concrete while it dries. Concrete is commonly used for foundations, walls, columns, slabs, and pavements. Masonry is used for similar purposes, but it involves units of material, such as bricks, stone, or precast concrete, that are arranged and bonded together with mortar. You cannot go wrong with any of these construction materials, but there are many considerations to make the right choice for your job. Give us a call to help you sort it all out.
