Through the UK’s historic architecture, manufacturers can reliably claim a brick’s durability and 150-year life expectancy in conjunction with its aesthetic benefits. This means the natural material requires minimal maintenance or replacement once installed.
Facing brick also positively contributes to a building’s thermal mass by storing thermal energy when the surroundings are higher in temperature, returning the stored thermal energy when the surroundings are cooler. Using facing brick in a fabric first approach means you can create a comfortable, low-energy indoor climate, before sourcing additional energy saving products.
