White masonry cement is a versatile building material that plays a crucial role in a wide range of construction projects. Fortunately, SESCO Cement has multiple types of white cement available as easy-to-order bags.
Let’s take a closer look at the uses of these products. We’ll also highlight our selection of products for use in a construction project or to offer customers on your store shelves.
Uses of White Masonry Cement
Our top-tier products are specifically formulated to meet the requirements necessary for building walls, façades, and other structural elements that use bricks, blocks, or stone. In particular, it is helpful in the following applications.
Bricklaying & Concrete Block Construction
When adhesive strength is required, masonry cement provides a strong connection between bricks and blocks to create durable walls in residential and commercial projects.
Whether you or your customers are building walls, foundations, or exterior façades, its bonding properties ensure the structural integrity of these projects.
Stucco & Plaster
Masonry cement is often used to create stucco and plaster finishes on both interior and exterior walls. It helps achieve a smooth and aesthetically pleasing surface that can be painted or textured.
Repointing & Repair
When old structures need to be repaired, or the grout between bricks needs repointing, masonry cement provides a reliable way to fill the gaps, cracks, and voids in existing brickwork. The result is extending the lifespan of buildings.
Tackling projects where heat is a factor requires materials that can withstand high temperatures and retain their strength and adhesion. Whether constructing chimneys or putting in an outdoor fire pit, masonry cement is the perfect choice for a long-lasting build.
Who Needs White Masonry Cement?
Because it’s such an adaptable material, many different customers need to obtain bagged masonry cement:
- Builders and contractors: quickly obtain your daily supply of bagged cement for the next phase of a construction project.
- Hardware or building supply store owners: buy bagged cement by the pallet from SESCO to meet the needs of every customer with ease.
For example, construction contractors specializing in residential or light commercial projects may find bagged cement suitable for their needs. It allows them to efficiently complete masonry work on a smaller scale with the bulk quantities required for large construction sites.
Likewise, contractors involved in restoring or renovating historic buildings and structures may need bagged cement to match the existing materials and ensure the preservation of architectural heritage.
In both examples, using smaller amounts allows for custom mixes and combinations that more easily fit the aesthetic and functional needs of these jobs.
