3 Types of Masonry Materials

Here are three of the most common masonry materials that you have to choose from.

If you have decided to use masonry materials for your upcoming construction project, then you have made a great choice. The next question is about choosing which specific materials you would be interested in using. Here are three of the most common masonry materials that you have to choose from.


When most people think of masonry projects, often, brick comes to mind. Brick, as a masonry material, is preferred to other masonry materials by the majority for a good reason. It has been employed for centuries without ever going extinct, and it is wind and fire-resistant. Brick also is known for how well it controls moisture, and it is very low maintenance. With all of these benefits, it is worth pointing out that brick repairs, though rare, are a bit expensive. When using brick, keep in mind the structure involved because brick is one of the heaviest of masonry materials.


Another of the most common masonry materials is concrete. It is one of the more cost-effect materials to work with, and it’s high insulative properties make it energy efficient, which can save even more money in long-term utility bills. Concrete is also made more common because it allows for a faster construction process than other masonry materials.


When it comes to a masonry material that offers good curb appeal, stone may be just the right thing you need. Stone has a classic, timeless appearance compared to other masonry materials. If you would like to add elegance to your masonry structure, stone is the best choice. Also, stone is a very durable, low maintenance material to work with, and natural stone is an eco-friendly choice.
