What Consumers are saying...
I never stopped to think about what our apartment was built with. Luckily when I asked, I found out it was all concrete block. I would say to anyone who lives in an apartment or condo- make sure it’s built with all concrete block. My wife and I sleep a lot better knowing our family is safe from all of the dangers of a wooden apartment complex.
What Developers are saying...
We build exclusively with concrete block because we retain ownership of the property. It means less repair, replacement and maintenance costs, lower insurance premiums and all around happier tenants.
What Insurers are saying...
It’s interesting to note that the savings in insurance premiums that can be realized by using concrete block construction can add up to a huge amount in just a few years; not to mention the extra liability attached to other types of construction.
What Investors are saying...
As an owner/investor, once you’ve had to perform major repairs and replacement because of mold, mildew, termites or storm damage to wood construction, it quickly becomes clear that concrete block construction is by far the best choice.
The apartment development industry is separated into one group of developers that build with the intent of getting the project completed as quickly and as cheaply as possible, and the other builds with the intent of long-term ownership.
Concrete block is designed to last a lifetime and more, and gets stronger as it ages. In fact, there are hundreds of thousands of homes and buildings constructed with concrete block that are 50 to a 100 years old or more.
Thanks to advances in architecture, technology and construction methods, block buildings offer amazing design flexibility. Whether its rounded, wavy walls or sharp triangular corners, concrete block meet the challenge.
