Building with clay blocks is cost efficient in several ways: Clay blocks allow a quick and flexible construction of a massive building envelope – that saves both time and costs. Recent studies confirm, that clay block masonry is more economical, compared to timber frame and concrete structures, this is shown in the comparison on the left.
Especially when built in monolithic construction, without additional insulation, wind and weather, heat, frost and also insects are not able to damage the wall. As a result, hardly any repair and maintenance costs are incurred, the value of the building is very stable and energy costs can be reduced due to the high insulating properties of clay blocks by Wienerberger. This is why building a house with clay building materials is always a first class investment.
