- Fixer Masonry fixes the stones directly onto the buildings using grouts, mortars, lifting tackle, epoxy resins, mastics or modern cements.
- Rubble Masonry arranges roughly shaped stones in mortar for structures or buildings.
- Ashlar Masonry uses cut stones to create structures or buildings.
- Stone Veneer Masonry uses stone veneers as a protective or decorative coating for interior or exterior surfaces.
- Slipform Masonry creates walls from stone using formwork to keep the walls straight by holding the rocks and mortar together. Slipform masonry walls typically consist of an outer stonework surface supported by reinforced concrete and rebar for strength.
