Masonry is often used for walls and buildings and includes building structures out of brick, marble, granite, limestone, cast stone, concrete blocks, glass blocks, and adobe. Masonry will not only beautify your Fillmore home improvement project, but it is also an excellent way to protect a building from fire. Masonry can withstand temperatures up to 1,000ºF and direct exposure to fire for up to 4 hours. Masonry is also more resistant to debris that might be projected at a house during a high wind event.
