When it comes to building multifamily residences, masonry provides unmatched durability, safety, and sound control while requiring minimal maintenance. For midrise residential construction, structural masonry with brick veneer is one of the most cost-effective systems on the market. Not to mention, in many parts of the country, insurance costs for non-combustible masonry can be up to 2.5 times lower than wood frame construction.
On multifamily interiors, masonry and tile can fit an array of budgets and aesthetics. On luxury projects, high-end finishes attract buyers and command profitable units. When managing building costs is high priority, masonry and tile can also be economical, long-lasting, and beautiful.
