The Best Cinder block Wall?
The fact is that we build all our cinder block walls up to code. No matter the type, size, style, race, credo…we always do the work right.
In another words, we dig to the proper depth, we use the proper rebars, we install the steel according to code for reinforcement, and we pour the right concrete PSI for the load applied, not to mention the right size cinder blocks.
Don’t get stuck with this: This picture shows a typical cinder block wall failure, including foundation (footing) dislodging, insufficient or missing drainage (gravel behind cinder block wall base), missing rebar (steel), and the proper laying level line of cinder blocks.
A combination of several of these problems and rubber plant roots caused all this damage on the cinder block wall.
YES! We always do it right.
If All You Need Is A Cinder block Wall:
Why Choose Us?
Curious about price? Let’s do some math. We are able to lay about 50 to 75 cinder blocks per day – per crew – depending on topography of the terrain, height of the wall, and accessibility and size of the cinder block chosen.
Crews usually comprise of one master mason and a cinder-block-carrying helper and a mortar mixer (either human or a good machine)
Get the dimensions of the cinder block, either 4x8x16, 6x8x16, 8x8x16…so on…divide by the area you need built – (length x height),
This way you find out how many cinder blocks you will need, and divide by the number of blocks we do on a typical working day (Info above)– Now multiply days of work by two workers’ rates (75/hour) plus equipment.

Cinderblock Wall Specials
We often have cinder block wall specials — especially during those times of the year when construction is slow.
Like, near the holidays by the end of the year, during or right after tax time, and some other times.
So, call us and we should be able to give you a deal on cinder block walls, that is, if you are willing to wait a bit to get it done…
We also have some specials for concrete block wall repair, for those times when a block wall only needs a few cement blocks replaced.
As you might imagine, it is impossible to repair a cinder block, but we are able to replace a single cinder block or a few rolls if need be.
Cinder block Wall is not a DIY friendly job:
Cinder concrete blocks are quite heavy, not enough to stop you from lifting them, but after a few hundreds, any arm gets tired.
When building a concrete block wall, a mason will lift on average 300 masonry blocks a day, sometimes multiple times.
A single masonry block can smash a toe through your shoe, so if you decide to handle it yourself, it is a good idea to invest in a pair of steel-toed shoes.
Cinder block masonry is not something that the do-it-yourselfer should be trying, specially when it comes to concrete block wall construction.
how to reinforce a Cinder block Wall:
The Clear Choice
Here in Los Angeles, because we are in earthquake country, it is hard to find a good mason, specially because concrete masonry construction is not widely used as common house-building practice.
But there are many ways to make a concrete block walls safe for earthquake country.
We can add steel reinforcement inside each layer of cinder block and inside entire rolls of cinder blocks, making a net of concrete and steel inside the cinder blocks that will make it virtually indestructible!
