Brass is tough and strong, and make for exceptionally functional and decorative architectural pieces. Brass naturally casts an air of sophistication to any home. Additionally, the metal is impervious to the elements and can naturally resist corrosion, allowing you to enjoy years of problem-free service. Chances are, it will even outlast the rest of your home.
Is brass expensive?
In some cases, solid brass can be more expensive than aluminum or plated steel. Then again, brass isn’t easily damaged like aluminum, and it won’t rust like plated steel. Although it may cost you more upfront, in the end, using brass as elements in your home’s architectural design can only save you money for the long years it will serve you.
