Traditionally, people chose building products based solely on aesthetic qualities. But these days, homeowners and contractors increasingly prefer environmentally friendly products that minimize the impact on our natural resources. McNear's brick and concrete products provide both: the beauty that enhances your lifestyle with the long-term sustainability that protects our environment.
McNear is dedicated to preserving our natural resources. Each year we remove over 35,000 tons of clay from the waste stream, which reduces the need for additional mining. We also provide a local collection point for excavators to dispose of their waste, sparing our community from the environmental costs of increased truck traffic.
McNear clay bricks are produced from material that would otherwise end up as useless, environmentally damaging landfill. In fact, we use mostly recycled clay and shale, which is locally excavated from trench work, house pads, swimming pools, and landscaping.
No other building material rivals masonry's life cycle - masonry is permanent. Combined with its energy efficient qualities and natural ingredients, you can see why masonry is one of the most sustainable building materials available. Even more, since masonry doesn't need to be painted, it requires no or little maintenance. Not only is brick good for our planet's health, it also provides you with a flexible and durable building option.
McNear's line of concrete products provides many of the same environmentally friendly qualities as brick. Our interlocking pavers and segmental retaining walls are constructed from materials that essentially will never wear out. As flexible systems, they're designed to accommodate inevitable minor shifts in the ground without cracking, and the subsequent need for replacement. Unlike other walls and pavements, both of these systems can be easily modified or repaired at any point in the future. Best of all, they conform to today's strict green building standards.
