The Importance of Quality Masonry Construction

masonry, chimney, fireplaceMasonry construction involves building structures, like chimneys and fireplaces, using common materials like brick or stone laid in and bound together by mortar, a workable paste which eventually hardens, binding several units together. 

The Importance of Masonry Construction

Why is masonry important? Well, it’s how many structures–perhaps your house or elements of your house– are literally put together. Furthermore, masonry is a highly durable form of construction. You want your house to withstand the weather over decades? If you have quality mortar and workmanship, expect your place to hold up to storms and such for many years. 

Masonry has been around for centuries. Its strength, style and aforementioned durability are key reasons that masonry endures.
