Masonry can be defined as the building of structures from individual units (such as brick or stone to mention a couple) that are bound together by mortar (a mixture of sand, cement (or lime), and water.) It’s known to be a highly durable form of construction, commonly used for walls of buildings and retaining walls. There are variables depending on the application such as the quality of the workmanship, the materials used and even the weather can affect the durability of the whole masonry construction. Concrete block and brick are the most commonly used type of masonry. Key benefits of masonry to a build relate to protecting the build from fire and also helping improve the thermal mass of a building.
