Concrete Block is Strong & Durable


Concrete block is inherently strong and resistant to structural loads, impacts, mechanical damage, abrasion, forced entry, and abuse. Historically, unreinforced concrete block masonry foundation walls have been used to resist soil pressure against exterior walls.  Now, with reinforced masonry becoming popular, thin, reinforced concrete block walls can easily be constructed to safely resist higher backfill soil pressures over any foundation and backfill height.  Block also provides a rigid, straight, and continuous surface to which any cladding or finish, exterior or interior, is easily attached.  

Block masonry offers long-term performance and unparalleled durability without the need for maintenance.  It provides superior resistance to nearly all types of deterioration caused by moisture, chemicals, corrosion, ultraviolet radiation, and mould and mildew growth.
