Why choose a masonry home

Versatility of Design
From compact contemporary townhouses to expansive country homesteads, you can achieve any size or style of masonry villa.
The Look
High-build coating systems come in heavy or light textures. Choose the softened lines of an undulating plaster finish or the precise, defined lines of a ‘true’ plaster finish.
Thick Walls
200mm-thick exterior Firth Hotbloc walls allow doors and windows with deep reveals for a genuine, solid look.
Thermal and Acoustic Performance
Concrete’s dense mass provides passive solar capabilities for a more comfortable home – cool in summer, warm in winter with reduced energy costs. Energy-efficient underfloor heating can be incorporated in concrete floors. Superior sound insulation stops noise travelling from undesirable sources.
Permanence
Solid masonry offers better durability, long life and low maintenance than most other building materials. From a safety perspective, concrete is also completely fire resistant and will inhibit and control the spread of fire.
Safe and Healthy
Because it’s easy to maintain a constant, comfortable temperature, you’ll enjoy a healthier home environment – a bonus for asthma sufferers. And, with no cavities to hide in, pests or insects cannot attack masonry homes.What’s more, using masonry external cladding also eliminates any risk of rotting.
