Mortar Vs Concrete: Difference Between Mortar And Concrete

Mortar Vs Concrete:

Concrete and mortar are two different building materials used in construction works, but many of us get confused on the differences between mortar and concrete. In this article, I will discuss the basic differences between concrete and mortar.


Concrete is a composite material produced from a mixture of sand, cement, aggregates and water in required proportions.


Mortar is made from a mixture of cement, sand, and water.

Difference Between Mortar And Concrete:

1. Concrete is a mixture of cement, sand, aggregates and water, on the other hand, mortar is made from cement, sand, and water.

2. Concrete is much stronger than mortar.

3. Mortar is less durable than concrete.

4. The water-cement ratio is higher in mortar, but the main aim of concrete is to keep the water-cement ratio asĀ  minimum as possible.

5. Mortar is a good binding material and it is mostly used to bind the bricks together. Due to greater strength and durability concrete is used in all type of construction works such as buildings, bridges, roads etc.

6. Concrete gives a long outcome but mortar has to be replaced in every 20 – 30 years.
