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 can be used in many different types of applications. 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 structures.
