Clay brick is naturally fireproof. Communities have adopted clay brick and masonry standards for centuries, recognizing the importance of protecting structures from fire and the spread of fire. In addition, the use of clay brick can reduce fire insurance premiums for home and business owners. Extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and other wind events can subject walls to an onslaught of wind-borne debris. Clay brick has proven to be a superior material to other cladding options at stopping or retarding such debris.
Clay brick is made from natural and recycled products, decreasing the environmental impact of manufacturing. The majority of brick plants are located within one mile of the clay deposits used for mining the raw material. This greatly reduces transportation costs. Additionally, over 85% of all the plants have been modernized within the last 10 years, resulting in a reduction in fuel usage during the firing process. Many of the brick that we carry qualify for LEED certification. Please contact one of our sales representatives for more information.
Clay brick buildings offer unbeatable return on investment because of their durability, lack of required maintenance and higher resale values. Brick has an unmatched 100 year life cycle when compared to other building materials such as vinyl-siding or stucco. It also has a high thermal mass, meaning that it is slow to lose or absorb heat which reduces the load on your heating and cooling system.
