Originally, masonry was the art of building a structure from
stone. Today, it refers to construction consisting of units held together with mortar,
such as concrete block, stone, brick, clay tile products, and, sometimes, glass block. The
characteristics of masonry work are determined by the properties of the masonry units and
mortar and by the methods of bonding, reinforcing, anchoring, tying, and joining the units
into a structure.
