Block Fill Concrete

Block Fill Concrete

Most residential and commercial structures incorporate cinder or concrete block foundations and retaining walls into their construction. Filling these hollow blocks with a block-fill concrete mix, often poured around reinforcing steel rebar supports, gives the structure significantly greater strength and durability. The added mass provides greater thermal and acoustic insulation as well.

Block Fill concrete jobs often take longer to unload, and so contractors frequently have to add water in order to maintain the appropriate slump. Unfortunately, this often reduces the quality (and strength) of the concrete. Because our trucks mix the concrete as needed at the job site, time is never a factor and we can ensure that the quality remains consistent throughout the job. Moreover, since we bill by the hundredth of a yard, contractors only have to pay for the exact quantity they use, rather than for the waste that occurs when they have to order in full or half yard quantities.

Typical Block Fill Concrete projects:

  • Structural Foundations
  • Concrete or Cinder Block Retaining Walls
  • Load-Bearing Structural Walls
