Masons build structures from individual units, like brick or cement, and bound them together with mortar, a workable paste like asphalt or pitch.

  • Brick & Blockmason: Masons bind building materials, such as brick, concrete block, cinder block, structural tile and terra-cotta block, with mortar and other substances to construct or repair walls, floors, fireplaces and other structures.
  • Cement Mason: These masons work with concrete, one of the most durable materials used in construction, to place and finish concrete walls, foundations, beams and columns.
