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.
