MASONRY CONSTRUCTION

MASONRY CONSTRUCTION

Masonry consists of building structures by laying individual masonry units (brick, concrete block, stone, etc.). Normally, the masonry units are laid with cement mortar which binds them together to create a structure.
Masonry construction can provide beautiful walls but due to the individual masonry units, Masonry Construction tends to be quite labour intensive.

Masonry Construction is made up of various sub-stages like:

  • Masonry in rooms
  • Masonry on terrace

Masonry construction can be done at any time of the year in India provided the below measures are followed:

  • Bricks, blocks, fly ash bricks, etc. should be immersed in water at least 12 hours before starting Masonry Construction so that the material becomes sufficiently water-saturated
  • Provide lintels and coping above window and door openings in Masonry walls to reduce cracks around openings

Time required to complete Masonry Construction:

Approx. 15 days for a 750 sq. ft. home and approx. 20 days for a 1000 sq. ft. home.

The most common challenge during masonry construction is the absorption of water from cement mortar by the bricks.

Nuvoco has various products that can be used for Masonry Construction. You can select any product as per your requirement.


Zero M Water Shield

  • It is an integral waterproofing compound mixed with cement at the time of concreting
  • It helps in waterproofing not only the wet areas but also all the floor areas of the building

Concreto / Concreto Green / Duraguard Waterseal / Duraguard

Different types of cement can be used in all structural applications of the building.

For example:

You can use Concreto, if you want super strength, best freshness, the lightest colour, superior finish and assured quality.

OR

You can use Concreto Green, if you have water shortage as it consumes 25% less water and gives 70% more strength.

OR

You can use Duraguard, if you want super strength and durability.

Note: You can mix Zero M Water Shield with any of the above cement products in given proportions if you want your cement to have water repellent properties.

OR

If you are not interested in doing the above exercise, you can directly use Duraguard Waterseal Cement which already consists of integral waterproofing compound.
