Environmental Benefits of Concrete Masonry Restoration

Masonry restoration from Abbot BuildingMasonry Restoration projects can require a tremendous amount of energy and materials depending on the size and scope of the undertaking. This is when concrete masonry comes in handy as a cost and energy-saving answer for your building and restoration needs.

Here are several environmental-friendly benefits that you can expect when using concrete masonry for your next building project.

Durability & Low Maintenance

Concrete masonry is durable and long-lasting, reducing the need for new production and manufacturing, and an overall reduction in energy usage. Concrete’s durability also results in a minimal amount of maintenance, meaning lower costs and required energy usage for the long-term upkeep of concrete buildings.

Repurposed Material

Concrete’s durability also allows it to be recycled for future masonry restoration uses. Concrete building materials can be repurposed for a variety of applications and projects, a key benefit not available with more fragile materials.

Locally Produced

The demand for locally produced goods can extend into the area of masonry restoration. Concrete can often be produced in a close proximity to the project location, which saves significant time and energy that would otherwise be used for the production and transportation of other building materials. Concrete masonry also requires less specialized equipment for construction, further reducing its impact on the environment.

Lower Energy Consumption & More Comfort

Concrete materials absorb energy slowly and hold it for much longer periods of time than do less massive materials. This delays and reduces heat transfer through a thermal mass building component, reducing the energy required to heat or cool your building. This also means that your building stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, keeping occupants more comfortable.

Improved Air Quality

Concrete masonry cannot only improve the comfort of your building, but also its air quality. The use of colored concrete material can eliminate the need for paints or adhesives, and reduce the amount of fumes and chemicals that are used in the process. Concrete is also a mold-resistant material, minimizing the risk of problematic mold allergy symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.
