Size Does Matter! A few inches can save you money.

Updated: Mar 2

When you consider the extra time, material, and manpower to cut a brick, Full Brick Construction SAVES MONEY in your Build. YES, size does matter!



Here’s how >>>>


Speed and Efficiency: Using full bricks reduces the time and labor required for cutting bricks to fit specific dimensions. This can significantly speed up the construction process, making it more efficient and cost-effective.


Reduced Waste: Minimizing the need for cutting bricks reduces material waste. This not only saves money but also promotes environmental sustainability by reducing the amount of unused materials that may end up in landfills.


Efficient Use of Manpower: Working with full bricks simplifies the construction process, as there is no need to accurately measure and cut bricks to fit specific areas. This can make the building process easier for workers, leading to faster completion times and lower labor costs.


Enhanced Insulation: Full bricks provide better insulation properties compared to cut bricks or other building materials. This can help regulate indoor temperatures more effectively, leading to improved energy efficiency and lower heating and cooling costs over time.


Building with Brick is a sustainable solution too!

Brick is made from some of the most abundant, natural materials on Earth and has less embodied carbons.


Recyclability: Brick is 100% recyclable and can be reused in other construction projects at the end of a building's life. This reduces the demand for new brick production and decreases the carbon emissions associated with manufacturing new materials.


Local Sourcing: Using locally sourced bricks can further reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation. By sourcing materials from nearby locations, the energy required to transport bricks to the construction site is minimized, lowering overall embodied carbon.


Energy Efficiency: Brick has excellent thermal mass properties, meaning it can absorb and store heat from the sun during the day and release it slowly at night. This can help regulate indoor temperatures and reduce the need for mechanical heating and cooling systems, ultimately lowering energy consumption and associated carbon emissions.


Designing and building with brick is a deliberate choice. It's a choice for sustainability, owing to its natural clay composition and enduring longevity, which collectively lessen environmental footprint. It's a choice for durability, enduring against the elements and the test of time. It's a choice for versatility, affording boundless design opportunities ranging from classic to contemporary aesthetics. Brick embodies timeless value and is a wise investment that appreciates in beauty and character with each passing year.
