Getting masonry back into top condition

Concrete blocks offer a world of opportunity when it comes to construction. This is due to the immense strength they possess. As a result, masonry is commonly used for buildings and retaining walls. There are in fact numerous benefits to using stones and bricks. Masonry as a method of construction has existed for centuries and has successfully endured. Masonry created Roman cities and Greek temples and many of those structures stand proud today.

Masonry is entirely cost-effective as it does not require painting. This spares you the expense of decorating materials and guarantees minimal maintenance.  Masonry offers superior resistance to fire, water and harsh weather conditions along with termites as without wood they have nothing to eat. Furthermore, masonry contributes to a reduction in mould and mildew between internal and external walls. Concrete blocks offer increased thermal benefits, as they store energy and enable your property to remain cool in the warmer months and warm throughout winter. By reducing energy bills, you ultimately reduce your utility bills.
