In times plagued by leaky building syndrome, a traditional building form provides peace of mind.

The Stevenson DryBlock Architectural Masonry system is integral to the showhome's striking architectural facades, and carries through to the interior feature walls. The clean, sharp lines of the stacked, bonded Architectural Masonry deliver an individual, contemporary feel throughout the showhome.

"The honed masonry block exterior, which incorporates the DryBlock system utilises built-in water repellency and turns a traditional standard masonry block into a block that repels water," says Stevenson's product manager Shaun Owen. "Solid concrete-block masonry construction using the DryBlock system reduces water worries and significantly improves the weather-tightness of buildings by producing water-repellent walls."

In addition, DryBlock offers other benefits for Jalcon Homes and its clients. These include durability, noise control, sound control and excellent thermal mass performance. In winter, walls absorb heat during the day, releasing it to warm the interiors at night. In summer, the house is insulated from excessive heat, and stays cooler, says Owen.
