No other building material is as cost effective as concrete block. From price-per-unit to the speed of construction, concrete block offers low-cost building. Only concrete block can offer superior structural durability. By the use of structural masonry materials, even high rise load bearing masonry structures become a reality. Naturally fire resistant, concrete masonry units will not burn, melt or give off toxic fumes. Greater energy efficiency is obtained by placing insulation inserts into the block at the time of manufacture, creating a greater R-value that will reduce heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter. No other building material is as easy to maintain as concrete block. With non-fading pigments, Phelps Cement Products Architectural Masonry Units are virtually maintenance free. Together, these advantages yield not only important savings, but buildings that attract more of their share of interest due to their great visual appeal.
