Contact Manuel Masonry for all of your building needs. The use of material such as bricks and stones can increase the thermal mass of a building and can protect the building from fire. Most types of masonry typically will not require painting and so can provide a structure with reduced life-cycle costs. Masonry is non-combustible product. Masonry walls are more resistant to projectiles, such as debris from hurricanes or tornadoes. Masonry structures built in compression preferably with lime mortar can have a useful life of more than 500 years as compared to 30 to 100 for structures of steel or reinforced concrete. At Manuel Masonry, we are a one stop shop for all of your building needs!
