Why concrete blocks are one of the best building materials for architects.

Concrete blocks are incombustible

Concrete blocks can withstand fires and extreme heat without catching fire or losing their shape. Concrete blocks recovered from great fires can be recycled into concrete blocks once more which makes it one brilliant material that’s easy to repair and recycles.

Concrete blocks are cost-efficient

Concrete blocks are one of the cheapest building materials there are in a list that includes reclaimed timber and the likes of recycled materials. They are a must-have for any low-cost project.


Versatility

Concrete blocks can be pressed into numerous shapes and their performance in construction is always guaranteed. Concrete blocks do not only come in many shapes but also countless colours and their surface texture is amazing for indoor as well as outdoor use.


Concrete blocks come in the same size and shape (if you want them to)

When you have a uniform, modular design in mind, then concrete is your go-to material. They are the perfect fit for any accurate design you’re aiming at since you can experiment with the number of blocks you’ll have to use and the outcome will be guaranteed due to these meticulous units. (Which also means that you will be able to calculate the cost beforehand and explore your options for building materials.) 


Acoustic and thermal insulation

Concrete blocks and concrete walls are great noise insulators; therefore, they are the best building material for shared spaces such as dorms, apartment complexes, and many more. This means they provide the residents with privacy and improves the user’s experience to a great extent.

The insulative properties of concrete blocks do not end at that, they actually provide thermal insulation as well. Concrete blocks are very dense; therefore, they can store or lose heat over a long period of time. There are also several options, such as single sheet solutions, that increase these insulative properties.


Water-resistant

Although concrete blocks are prone to long term damage due to exposure to rain and very low temperatures, they still have low levels of water absorption. If concrete blocks do absorb water, however, they are still breathable materials that air out this water and can be easily cleaned. In terms of increasing the waterproofing qualities of concrete blocks, certain additives can increase their surface tension and prevent water absorption.
