Masonry is commonly used for the walls of buildings, retaining walls and buildings. Brick and concrete block are the most common types of masonry in use in industrialized nations and may be either weight-bearing or a veneer. Concrete blocks, especially those with hollow cores, offer various possibilities in masonry construction. They generally provide great compressive strength, and are best suited to structures with light transverse loading when the cores remain unfilled. Filling some or all of the cores with concrete or concrete with steel reinforcement (typically rebar) offers much greater tensile and lateral strength to structures.

Advantages

  • The use of material such as bricks and stones can increase the thermal mass of a building and can protect the building from fire.
  • Most types of masonry typically will not require painting and so can provide a structure with reduced life-cycle costs.
  • Masonry is a non-combustible product.
  • Masonry walls are more resistant to projectiles, such as debris from hurricanes or tornadoes.
