Does brick require maintenance?

People who own brick homes frequently say they need no maintenance.

Ever. And while thatʼs not exactly correct, the fact is, that the brick in your 
new home will need no maintenance for about 100 years. So, while almost every other material requires repeated work, costing thousands of dollars each time you paint or clean or replace, the brick on your home simply wonʼt. At least until well past the year 2100.
