Durbility: Beauty that LastsConcrete is one of the most durable materials on Earth. Here in Florida, concrete block is unquestionably the most practical home building material. There's no rotting or wall warping. No extensive maintenance or upkeep requirements. Your home retains its curb appeal and its value - beautifully.
Energy Efficiency: Attractive Energy SavingsConcrete block homes are more energy efficient than wood homes, especially in Florida's hot, humid, sun-baked climate. That's because the mass factor of block acts as a resevoir to trap and store heat from the sun, so that interiors stay cooler longer.
- The Florida Energy Code: recognizes the value of mass by requiring much less insulation for concrete block walls than for wood frame walls.
- Air Infiltration: from "wall leaks" is estimated to cause up to 39% of home energy loss. Concrete block walls, which are more airtight than wood frame walls, seal in air conditioned air far better - while keeping out hot, humid air.
