Economical


Concrete masonry block is the most economical choice when it comes to choosing material for a new building structure. In addition to being one of the cheaper selections it will:

  • Last longer
  • Be energy efficient
  • Qualify you for insurance discounts

Benefits

Competitive Pricing

Masonry and precast costs are similar to - and often cheaper - than other popular building materials.


Energy Efficient

In a 100,000 sq. ft building, a block structure can save you $1,200 per month versus a frame structure of the same size.

Little Maintenance

There's no updating, staining or replacement needed with concrete block masonry. That means you save time and money.


Long Lasting

Concrete masonry structures can last up to 100 years. During that same time period, wood can deteriorate and leave your structure weak and vulnerable.
