  • Enhance the thermal mass of your building, saving you money due to its natural energy efficiency

  • Give your home an effective sound barrier

  • Enjoy great longevity, with masonry work lasting much longer than most other types of building materials

  • Save money on construction and maintenance in the long run

Benefits of Brick Masonry

Bricks have been a part of building construction since ancient times. The advantages of bricks are that they are durable, solid, and perform excellently in Massachusetts weather. Brick doesn’t rot, is immune to termites, and can last a very long time with minimal maintenance. Though brick may cost more than stucco or other materials, it pays for itself in the long-run. As brick requires little upkeep and is so durable, you can expect it to be around and in good condition for many years. If you are looking to build a brick wall, contact Anderson Landscape Construction for all your brickwork needs.

Benefits of Stone Masonry

Building a home or commercial site with some components of stone is an excellent choice if you value beauty, durability, and weather-resistance. Stone does not warp, dent, splinter, or swell. It is also very difficult to chip or scratch it. Like brick, stone walls and flooring can be expected to last a very, very long time. Some of the oldest buildings still standing are made of stone.

On top of the practical advantages of stone, the aesthetic appeal of stone cannot be denied. Stone looks great combined with most other types of construction material, and can make your building look more grand, majestic, strong, and welcoming. There are so many benefits to building with stone — consider it as a component in your overall construction plan!

Benefits of Concrete Blocks

For regions with lots of rain, wind, or critters, concrete block construction is supremely practical. It is extremely durable and, when assembled properly, can be sturdier than even poured concrete. Concrete blocks are resistant to all types of environmental damage, and are great for improving your building's energy efficiency, helping insulate your structure from outside air and preventing temperature fluctuations.

Concrete blocks are simple and straightforward to assemble. The materials also are not very expensive, so, combined with the straightforward labor costs, this is usually the least expensive construction material we cover in today’s blog.

The appearance of a concrete block wall or facade also has aesthetic value. There are so many different types of facings available, that there is a look that will suit your home. If you want to start enjoying the extreme durability and longevity of concrete block construction on your estate, contact Anderson Landscape Construction today!
