BENEFITS OF HIRING MASONRY WORKS A PROFESSIONAL MASON CONTRACTOR by E M Management
It’s important to understand that in the construction industry, there are several different types of contractors. General contractors oversee projects and often hire subcontractors to handle specific building aspects. Here at Mason Works we only have in-house masons. Masons are those who work primarily in brick, stone, stucco and concrete. A masonry contractor like Mason Works can handle such things as brick or block construction, pour cement basement floors and driveways, erect chimneys, stucco and build stone walls. When you hire a professional masonry contractor like Mason Works to work on your home or commercial building, they handle some of the strongest and most valuable building materials. Here are just some of the benefits to brick and mortar, stucco and concrete, Water Resistant: While we generally have an expectation that home and commercial siding will be waterproof, shingles get old and gaps will eventually allow penetration. Although products such as aluminum siding are less likely to crack with age, they can be damaged and torn in extreme weather. Stucco, Block and brick construction is dense and does not allow moisture penetration when properly installed and maintained. Energy Efficiency: Stucco Brick and block buildings allow for less heat and cold loss, which makes climate control less costly. Fireproof: It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that Stucco, brick and mortar does not burn. That provides a level of fire safety not found in timber-built homes and businesses. Maintenance: Masonry construction ranks among the easiest types of construction to maintain. It can take decades before mortar needs repairing. Cement driveways last equally as long without touch-ups. The opposite is true of tar drives that require yearly sealing and coating. Resale Value: Although brick, Stucco costs more to build with, it raises property values in the area of 6 percent. Masonry contractors have the ability to add "stucco and brick veneer” to the exteriors. These thinner, real bricks are designed for beautification. Because homebuyers tend to gravitate to the curb appeal of brick homes, it helps resale values. Lower Insurance Rates: The “Three Little Pigs” story tells you all that you need to know about the strength of brick homes. That same idea factors into homeowners policies. One of the key factors in determining a premium is the potential for loss due to fire and storm damage. Masonry built homes check “no” in those boxes. Hiring a professional masonry contractor means heading down a path using high quality and durable construction materials. Masonry sometimes tends to cost more because it’s more labor intensive than timber but At the end of the day, brick and mortar construction tends to deliver more benefits and value.
