Everything You Need to Know About Custom Masonry

Part of designing the perfect home in Middle Tennessee is choosing what type of masonry you’ll use on the exterior. That’s not as easy as it sounds, though, because you have dozens of options – and they’re all equally durable, attractive and functional.


What is Custom Masonry?

Custom masonry adds a certain panache to your home that wouldn’t be there with ordinary, plain-Jane siding.

Masonry can encompass several materials, but generally comprises individual blocks of:

  • Marble
  • Brick
  • Stone
  • Granite

One of the benefits of using custom masonry on the exterior of your home is that it doesn’t need paint or additional enhancements; non-combustible masonry also helps protect your home from the threat of fire.

Available Masonry for Your Custom Home

Masonry comes in hundreds of decorative finishes, textures and colors – your options are almost limitless. You’ll enjoy more flexibility in the outward appearance of your home than people who rely on traditional building materials do.

For the most part, custom masonry stands the test of time because it’s composed of naturally occurring elements. It’s usually impervious to the elements and acts as a natural insulator against extreme hot or cold. Masonry also increases the building’s thermal mass, which naturally captures solar heat in the winter.

Quality Craftsmanship Never Goes Out of Style

Custom masonry goes a long way toward making your home’s appearance timeless, whether you choose brick, stone or another material. You can also apply it elsewhere in your home, including:

  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Pathways
  • Decks
  • Stairs
  • Indoor features
