The natural strength of clay brick guarantees that commercial and residential structures will be built to last. Clay brick structures require little maintenance by successive property owners and ensure that buildings will remain an asset, not a liability, to a community for decades to come. Institutional structures built with clay brick are less of a tax burden on residents due to the minimum maintenance required for clay brick relative to vinyl and similar less durable cladding options.
The multiple colors, shapes and sizes available in clay brick allow builders and developers the flexibility to create visually pleasing buildings and developments while adhering to a requisite for clay brick. Due to its warmth, texture and scale, clay brick also helps create a sense of place. This is particularly evident in communities that use clay brick for plazas, sidewalks and city streets.
The increased valuation of masonry, typically 6% more, and commercial structures creates an increased property tax base for communities. Consequently, a masonry standard offers communities the ability to spend additional tax revenue on much-needed city services. The longevity of masonry buildings ensures that they will be an asset and not a detriment to a city’s tax base for decades.
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, tornados, 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.
