Masonry refers to the use of bricks, stones, and other units to build, repair, or restore structures. Masonry units are preferred over other materials because they are:
- Energy-efficient: mason units allow for less cold and heat loss, which makes temperature control less costly – regardless of the season.
- Water-resistant: brick work construction is dense and hinders water penetration when properly installed and maintained. Note, however, these units are porous, which encourages water adsorption unless proper installation, waterproofing, and maintenance are done.
- Lower Insurance premiums: built structures are less prone to storm or fire damage, which lowers their premium rates.
- Fireproof: bricks, stones, and other masonry blocks are fire-resistant, which provides a level of fire safety not present in timber-built structures.
- Low maintenance: Mason Work constructions are relatively easier to maintain. For instance, it can take years before cement driveways need touch-ups and before mortar needs repointing. Bricks, stones, are durable, unlike tar that requires annual sealing and coating.
- Higher resale value: although constructions are costly, they raise the property. Bricks can higher a property value by 6%, especially when there are brick veneers added to the exteriors.
Your Masonry Contractor knows why bricks are better. Kelowna Masonry mainly specializes in the use of bricks to install, repair, or restore structures due to the following reasons:
- Bricks are uniform in shape and size, which eliminates the need for skilled labor for brick cutting and placing.
- Bricks are lightweight, which makes there transportation, handling, and placement easy.
- Bricks are thinner compared to other masonry units, which results in thinner walls suitable for densely built-up areas.
- Bricks are widely available, thanks to their low transportation cost.
- Bricks are more weather and fire-resistant compared to most masonry systems.
- Brick construction results in thin and perfect joints, which reduces costly/material costs.
- Bricks are recyclable and reusable in other projects, such as landscaping.
- Bricks have a better thermal mass compared to most masonry units, which enhance their ability to regulate indoor temperatures, consequently lowering home or business energy costs.
Note, however, bricks are porous and will absorb a lot of water that is liable to damage your structure in the form of bricks Spalling, efflorescence, or mortar deterioration. That calls for adequate waterproofing and stonework repairs.

Masonry walls are of different types. Kelowna Masonry works on several type. Brick veneer walls provide cladding and only bear horizontal loads (wind and earthquake,) which are then, transferred to a structural backup. Structural walls, on their end, can be cladding but are majorly load-bearing systems. Regardless, any brick wall should be installed and maintained properly to provide optimal thermal performance, fire safety, and acoustics.
When properly installed, masonry walls require little maintenance – the likes of the replacement of sealants in the perimeter of windows, doors, and other openings as well as in expansion joints.
Ideally, demising walls (otherwise known as separation walls) should be sealed at connection points, insulated against fires, and equipped with noise abatement measures.
Their construction should ensure privacy and reduce issues between adjacent occupants.
Cracked mortar and the consequent water infiltration accounts for most damages in masonry constructions. The downside is these damages develop slowly and are undetectable.
Therefore, employ professional masons to do regular inspections and repairs of your brick wall. Masonry Kelowna works on all type of bricks and repairs.
