Resale Value

Brick homes tend to have a higher resale value because buyers know that they offer energy efficiency (staying cooler in the summer months and warmer in the winter months), a small amount of maintenance and increased weather durability even in harsh climates.

Maintenance

While the initial cost of brick may be more expensive than other exterior surfaces like vinyl, wood, or aluminum, the lack of maintenance is reason enough to consider the product.

Brick homes require much less maintenance than other homes because you will never have to paint the brick on your home, the color remains the same from year to year and will not fade, and brick is resistant to mold, mildew, pests, moisture, and weather damage.

Longevity

While brick is very long-lasting compared to other building materials, one aspect of maintenance cannot be avoided – tuckpointing. However, that should not be needed until 20-30 years of home ownership.
