Masonry is defined as construction with mortar as a binding material. Various building materials such as the most popular brick, stone, marble, granite, concrete, and tile are bound together in individual units using the mortar mixed with sand.

Types of Masonry
Load-bearing walls – a load bearing wall is construction to carry a load and built upon a foundation surface. This type of masonry is seen on tall buildings or houses with multiples stories.
Non-load bearing walls – this type of masonry is used when constructing an interior wall or frame. This type is NOT meant to support any load rather to only provide separation.
Solid walls – these walls are primarily used for exterior and provide an enclosed area for wiring. They are typically reinforced by joints and filled completely with the mortar mix.
