The advantages of brick, block and stone are many. These materials serve as a natural insulation and provide a more constant temperature to the structure all year-round.  Brick and block require very little maintenance. They are heat resistant for fire protection and stand up well against Mother Nature. In addition they provide a professional appearance for a corporate office building and shopping center. Concrete block provides the necessary reinforced strength for large construction projects including office buildings, schools, hospitals, and industrial facilities.
