Why Choose a Block Wall?
Homeowners choose block partitions for a variety of reasons. They are less expensive than other types of fencing, they hold up well against the weather or other issues, and they can be used in a variety of ways around your home. There are also a variety of options to consider, depending on the final look you want. When you install block wall fencing, for instance, you can choose from a variety of blocks to create a custom look that adds to the curb appeal of your home.
Block walls are also chosen because they provide a number of advantages over other types of materials. Unlike wood, block enclosures won’t be damaged by termites or other creatures. The blocks used aren’t going to warp with time and, when the block wall construction is done right, they will be resistant to both fire and earthquakes. Where metal fencing can rust, and wood will require upkeep over the years, a block barricades will continue to look great with less work on your part.
How to Use a Block Wall
The use of a block partition depends on what is needed in your yard. Some of the ways they can be used include the following.
Anyone can stack blocks and create a wall, but the wall isn’t going to last as long as it could if the block wall installation was done right. Creating the wall takes a lot more than just stacking the blocks in the right spot. It’s crucial to start with a solid block wall foundation. Then, to last, blocks should be reinforced with rebar, especially if they’re used for a retaining wall. As the soil around the blocks shifts, the rebar will help hold it in place. It may also be a good idea, depending on the use for the wall, to add waterproofing to the blocks. While the blocks are already durable, the waterproofing can help them last longer, especially if they’ll be covered in soil on one side as the soil may stay damp while the side of the wall exposed to the sun dries.
The Cost of the Block Wall
The cost of a block partition is going to vary based on the type of wall, how long it will be, and how tall it will be. Adding on waterproofing or other finishing details can increase the block wall cost, but it may be worth it to make sure the wall looks great and lasts as long as possible. During the planning stage of the wall, a block wall builder can review your plans and take a look at the yard. They may make recommendations on how to improve the plan or can help you create a plan if you don’t have one yet. Then, they can provide an estimate of the cost of installing the wall. This way, you’ll know exactly how much to budget for the new wall.
