What are the properties of masonry materials?

Masonry features include design flexibility, diverse textures, structural strength, mold resistance, durability, simple maintenance needs, and competitive costs. Thanks to these properties, masonry has been one of the most used construction methods throughout history and in modern times. Modern masonry products include Portland cement plaster (stucco), masonry cements, mortars, concrete blocks and clay bricks. These materials can be used inside or outside structures in a wide range of Environments.

Load-bearing walls serve a structural purpose, while sheets and cladding, which are often used as architectural finishes, also function as weather barriers. Regardless of the material used, modern masonry construction provides durability, safety, aesthetic appeal and other benefits in a cost-effective manner.
