Why build with clay brick?
When you build with clay brick, you build for the future. You build pride and dignity. You create satisfied occupants living and working in a safe, healthy environment. You create satisfied property owners who can rely on affordable and easily maintained infrastructure. And you create prosperous local communities and entrepreneurs.
Brick masonry does not rot, tarnish, puncture, fade, rust, scuff, peel, erode or burn. Clay brick withstands severe coastal environments with salt sea mist, flooding, lightning, hail and rapid temperature changes. Clay brick
structures have high load-bearing and compressive strength, and maximum fire resistance.
Bricks can “self-regulate” keeping internal space naturally cool in summer and warm in winter, reducing the need for heating and air-conditioning. Clay face bricks require little or no maintenance. Clay bricks rarely expand or
contract due to moisture, heat or cold, reducing cracking.
With its ability to regulate both temperature and air humidity, brick homes maintain an interior comfort zone in both the coolest and hottest months. Clay bricks are resistant to damage from ants, borer and termites and
resist moulds and fungi. Brick homes keep suburbs quiet due to good noise insulation.
Clay brick homes are always in demand, and define the benchmark for superior investment value. Brick brings rich colours and textures to concrete, steel and glass buildings. Clay brick’s enduring hues and textures look beautiful
for a lifetime,
