Why Choose Brick? High Wind Protection

Why Choose Brick? High Wind Protection 2048 1536 South Alabama Brick

High wind protection – A Shelter from the Storm study conducted in September 2004 shows that homes built with brick offer dramatically more protection from wind-blown debris than homes built with vinyl or fiber-cement siding. Conducted at the Wind Science and Engineering Research Center at Texas Tech University, the study demonstrated that a medium-sized wind-blown object, such as a 7.5-foot long 2 x 4, would penetrate homes built with vinyl or fiber-cement siding at a speed of 25 mph. By comparison, the same object would need to travel at a speed exceeding 80 mph in order to penetrate the wall of a brick home. The tests found that homes made with brick exceed the 34 mph impact resistance requirement for high velocity hurricane zones in the Florida building code. Brick also exceeds Florida’s impact resistance requirements for essential facilities in hurricane areas. Brick is such a strong and durable building material that your insurance companies may even offer you a discount on your home insurance costs.

When selecting exterior building products, brick offers countless advantages over all other options. Proven for centuries, brick offers exceptional fire protection, superior moisture control, high wind protection, and are naturally energy efficient. Its modular units and variety of shapes have resulted in beautiful structures in just about every architectural style, ranging from colonial to Victorian to post-modernist.

Brick also offers lasting value and is virtually maintenance free. With practically no upkeep or repairs, homeowners avoiding ongoing costs, well as energy bill savings. When it’s time to sell, brick rates well because it’s trusted over newer cladding materials that haven’t stood the test of time.

Unlike other products, color is baked into brick so it lasts for a lifetime. One of the few materials that can actually look better with age, brick also absorbs noise, giving it an acoustic advantage over other materials – especially helpful in densely populated areas.

Brick are permanent. Weather and age proof, brick won’t tire like other man made materials. It will not rot, dent, or need to be painted, and it will never tear. Brick will not be eaten by termites. This certainly explains ads for “all-brick” houses much more often than ads for “all-vinyl” or “all-EIFS” neighborhoods. SABCO Brick Looks Best
