Masonry has many benefits in Design and Construction.
When you consider using Masonry in the construction of your next project, you can be sure that it will be structurally sound and a better option for success in all types of climate situations. Building with Masonry is attractive and allows for creative design options that can make each project unique. Brick, block, or stone masonry provides flexibility in construction, and the load-bearing attributes provide safety and performance over a long period of time.
Masonry has a number of economic benefits to the local community. Most masonry construction projects are completed using local resources of masonry materials and labor. The money spent on masonry construction creates a direct benefit to local residents in the way of jobs, sales from local masonry suppliers, and provides stability and beauty to the community.
Fire safety is another benefit for building with masonry. The performance of masonry subjected to fire promotes an environment for life safety and can contribute to more favorable insurance policy premiums. Masonry acts as a fire barrier that helps to minimize the spread of fire and greatly reduces the chance of structures starting on fire. Masonry will not burn and provides fire safety from the construction phase through the life of the structure.
