Aside from its timeless beauty, brick is one of the most durable and energy-efficient building materials you can use. This is important in Peoria, Pekin and other areas of Central Illinois where the weather can get hot and humid in the summer as well as cold and blustery in the winter. It maintains the internal temperature of a home better and is slow to lose or absorb heat. Bricks will last a lifetime, unlike other building materials. Building with brick also increases the value of your investment and leaves a lasting impression. While it potentially can be more expensive, the money you save on energy costs and the long-term value of your home will far outweigh the initial cost.
fire resistant brick


Bricks are non-flammable and withstand high amounts of heat without damage. Houses made of brick or majority of brick are less likely to endure major structural damage during a home fire.
insulating brick


Bricks are very good at helping to maintain interior temperatures. During winter they absorb heat keeping the home warm and cool during the summer. 
brick maintenance


Since bricks are easy to clean they are easier to maintain compared to vinyl siding. They rarely acquire mold growth and loose dirt can easily be cleaned away with a hose.
brick useage


Another way brick is better is for noise buffering. Bricks can help limit the sounds of outside traffic or other noise issues. Also interior brick use can help buffer sounds from room to room.
