Durable – Brick houses are built to last 100 years.
Weather and Fire Resistant – Brick exteriors can withstand bad weather, including high winds, hail or other flying debris better than other materials, and are noncombustible. Brick will often have lower homeowner’s insurance premiums.
Low-maintenance – durable, high color retention, does not rot or dent.
Sound Proof – brick can block more sound from outside than other exterior materials.
Energy Efficient – although not the best option for extreme temperatures, brick insulates the home and delays the movement of heat through walls, keeping warm air in during winter, and out in summer. This reduces heating and cooling bills by approximately 8%.
Handles Moisture Without Issue – brick is not water proof but is able to absorb and release moisture without any damage.
Eco-friendly – brick is made from clay and shale, the most abundant materials on earth.
