Building with stone, brick, and wood has been a staple for decades. These materials provide incredible styles that can differentiate any space and have proved the test of time as styles that will always be around. There is a reason that people spend lots of money on these materials and the labor to install it. However, there are definite downsides to using real stone, brick, or wood for your home, office, or building. Real wood looks great, but moisture, sun, and other elements can quickly take their toll and it is an excellent breeding ground for mold and termites. Similarly, brick and stone requires significant cleaning and upkeep over the years to maintain its same appearance and often falls victim to cracking, settling, or chipping of grout in the seems.
