Masonry Construction Materials
The common materials of masonry construction are stone, brick, concrete, marble,
limestone and concrete block. With these types of materials, Masonry contractors
are expected to build highly durable walkways, brick steps, stone walls and many
other masonry structures. Even though masonry construction is supposed to be
highly durable, the quality of the mortar, the workmanship, the materials used,
and the way the masonry material is laid, can greatly affect the look and durability
of the overall masonry construction.
Stone walls can add tremendous value to a home. Some stone walls are built
just for looks, but many times they can create scenic boundaries and different
levels to a home’s landscape. Residential masonry contractors also build
retaining walls needed for proper drainage and maintaining a level
grade to the landscape. With cement blocks and concrete blocks, as well as with
field stones and virtually any type of rocks that are locally available, masonry
contractors can offer you a variety of options.
Bricks are the most common type of masonry and can be used in many different
ways. From brick walls to brick steps to brick walkways, brick has many uses
and also allows for many designs and patterns. Bricks also come in various colors.
Concrete block masonry is used mostly for building walls and retaining walls.
Concrete blocks — most of which have hollow cores — generally provide
great compressive strength. Filling some or all of the cores with concrete or
concrete with steel reinforcement offers much greater lateral strength to masonry
