CONCRETE BLOCKS (NO DELIVERIES ON THIS PRODUCT)
A concrete block is a standard size rectangular block used in building construction. They are some of the most versatile building products available because of the wide variety of appearances that can be achieved using them.
Concrete blocks are made from cast concrete (e.g. Portland cement and aggregate, usually sand and fine gravel, for high-density blocks). Lower density blocks may use industrial wastes, such as fly ash or bottom ash, as an aggregate.
Concrete blocks may be produced with hollow centers (cores) to reduce weight, improve insulation and provide an interconnected void into which concrete can be poured to solidify the entire wall after it's built.
Blocks come in modular sizes, with the most popular typically referred to (by their thickness) as "4-inch", "6-inch", "8-inch", and "12-inch".
Block cores are typically tapered so that their top surface (as laid) has a greater surface on which to spread a mortar bed and for easier handling. Most concrete have two cores, but three- and four-core units are also produced.
