The word Masonry is generally used to describe building from individual units laid in and bound together by mortar but can also refer to the units themselves. Common masonry construction materials are Brick, Stone, Marble, Granite, Limestone, Cast stone, Concrete block, and Glass block.  Masonry is a highly durable form of construction. However, the materials used, the quality of workmanship, and the pattern in which the units are assembled can significantly affect the durability of the overall masonry construction.

Masonry, whether stone or block, is a traditional form of construction practiced for centuries. It is often associated with historic and cultural centers as it is a beautiful material that stands the test of time so is commonly used in construction projects for longevity and beauty.  Buildings with brick and stone look good and function well.  This construction type is present in earthquake-prone regions of the world but is practical and functional everywhere.
