Adds Value and Appeal to Your Home:
Brick and stone, when combined with mortar, have a lot of aesthetic benefits. These can give a higher order appeal to the overall look of your home. Aesthetically, masonry adds texture, pattern, color, and style to the exterior, brings balance by anchoring the home with a weighted material, and adds authenticity to the home by using natural and classically used materials. These materials also add a more high-end look, which, in turn, adds value to your home.
And though sometimes stone and brick can cost a little more than other materials, a home that has a well done masonry job on the exterior typically evaluates much higher, so a homeowner can set a higher asking price when they resell the home.
