WHY CHOOSE BRICK?
WHY CHOOSE BRICK?
Thinking about building and want to know the best material to use for construction? Here’s why bricks are best.
- Bricks are a solid investment
Bricks are permanent. They’re weather and age proof. Bricks don’t get tired like other man made materials. They won’t twist or warp, rot or decay, erode or dent. They are resistant to the extremes of the South African climate and being non-combustible, they don’t assist the spread of fire. When it’s time to sell, brick rates well because it’s trusted over newer building materials that haven’t stood the test of time.
2. Bricks are low-maintenance
Bricks require virtually no upkeep or repairs, avoiding ongoing costs. Unlike other products, the colour is baked into the product so it lasts for a lifetime. Remember, render will need to be repainted over time, an important fact to consider when looking at the ‘whole-of-life’ cost of your home.
3. Bricks offer thermal properties
Brick is a building material that has exceptional “thermal mass” properties. Thermal mass is the ability of a heavy, dense material to store heat and then slowly release it. This means that during summer, brick homes stay cool during the hottest part of the day, while in the cooler months, the walls store your home’s heat and radiate it back to those inside.
4. Bricks are beautiful
Bricks suit every design style, from grand Victorian residences to ultra-modern homes and mid-century masterpieces. Versatile and tactile, they come in a huge range of colours, finishes and textures, allowing home builders to create their own unique home.
