A window or door glass consisting of two sheets of glass separated by a sealed air space to reduce heat transfer.
Building units made from natural clays or shales (sometimes with other materials added, such as coloring) and molded to shape dried, and fired for hardness.
A method of constructing by bonding layers of material with an adhesive, such as plastic laminate or a glue-laminated wood beam.
Soft, finely stratified sedimentary rock that formed from consolidated mud or clay and can be split easily into fragile slabs.
Support member for a masonry opening, usually made of precast concrete or steel.
Insulation made from particles of material such as rock wool, wood fibers, cork, wood pulp products, or vermiculite. It is poured, blown, or packed in place by hand.
Wood that has been cut to specific dimensions for structural use.
Cementitious substance used as a binding agent for masonry units.
Small tiles, typically 1" square, that can be laid to form a design or pattern.
Metals containing little or no iron.
Open-Web Steel Joists
A truss type joist with top and bottom chords and a web formed of diagonal members. Some manufacturers make a joist with chords of wood and a steel web and refer to it as a truss joint.

Sheet glass that has been heat-treated during forming, producing a brilliant surface that is ground and polished when cooled.
A composite lumber material consisting of layers of wood glued together with their grains oriented perpendicular.
A floor covering material produced from clays that provide a wear-resistant surface.

A type of stone masonry unit taken directly from the quarry, without smoothing or finishing.
A numeric classification for insulating value (resistance to heat transfer).
Glass that has been treated to resist breakage, or to break into less hazardous pieces.
Building units molded from a mixture of sand and lime and hardened under steam pressure and heat.
Glass commonly used for windows in thicknesses of 3/32" or 1/8".
A masonry wall composed of one row of bricks.
Colored glass produced by adding metallic oxides in the molten state. This glass can be used for windows and decorative pieces. Sometimes called art or cathedral glass.
Construction method using granite, limestone, marble, sandstone, or slate as a building material. Today, _____ _______ is usually decorative, rather than structural.
Structural Clay Tiles
Building units made of materials similar to brick, but in larger sizes.
General name for several types of mild steel normally used in construction.
Wood that has been dressed or finished to size by running it through a planer.
