This lesson will review the basics of masonry construction so that those observing or accessing that construction are aware of common procedures and practices. Tolerances of units and construction will be reviewed so that those constructing masonry, or judging that construction know whether the resulting work is reasonable and within common tolerances. Movement joints including control joints and expansion joints will also be reviewed as to why they may be needed, what is important to make them function properly, and how they are commonly constructed.
