What is Masonry?

The process of building structures from individual units that are generally laid in and bound by mortar is called ‘masonry.’ The units themselves also can be referred to as masonry. Bricks and other building stones like granite, marble, travertine, limestone, cast stone, concrete block, glass block and cob are common materials used for masonry. It is a highly durable form of construction that is subjective to the materials used, the quality of the workmanship, the type of mortar, and the pattern in which units are assembled. The durability of the overall masonry construction is crucially affected by these factors. An individual who is involved in this process is called a bricklayer or a mason.
