Total wall costs are comprised of both labor and material. While material costs for brick are nearly identical in any size, labor costs are a function of time. RS Means (a national estimating service) indicates that labor makes up about 70% of the total wall cost for a modular brick veneer. Because the larger Emperor brick can double the total square footage installed per mason each day, labor costs can be halved and total overall costs are reduced by approximately 25-30%. Additionally, equipment costs, interim financing costs, and numerous other advantages can be realized.
