Masonry wall systems are construction systems that use masonry materials such as bricks, stone, or concrete blocks to build walls. Usually, these materials are stacked on top of each other and held together with mortar. Masonry is the oldest technique used to build buildings or structures. Masonry is a term used to indicate the part of the construction that uses bricks, concrete blocks, structural clay tiles and stone.
These materials are held together with mortar. Masonry mortar is not a mixture of cement, the material used for sidewalks, patios or driveways. The mortar mixture contains lime, sand and gypsum, each in the right proportions. The cement mixture, on the other hand, has stones in the sand and does not contain lime.
Mortar is usually composed of cement, lime and sand, although lime mortars can also be compounds in which cement is not used. The components and proportions of the mortars vary depending on the desired properties of the mortar. Mortars composed of Portland cement and lime, as well as sand, are the most common. Premixed mortars should be carefully checked to determine the actual components of the blend.
Masonry is any construction method that uses mortar as an adhesive. All bricks, granite, marble, tiles and concrete blocks are used. Unlike the Spackle, which is made entirely of silicone, the mortar actually contains sand. The binder mixture can be made of various materials such as lime, cement, soil and more.
