We provide a full range of sizes of concrete masonry units, or concrete block, for use in home construction or commercial use. These units, commonly called "gray block," and sometimes "cinder block," are primarily weight-bearing elements of the wall, and are not generally seen after construction is complete. They are typically backing for a brick wall.
Riverside also provides a wide variety of architectural block, including split-face, ground-face, and other textures in several dozen colors. These masonry units are both structural and decorative, with texture and color designed for a richer look than plain or painted gray block.
For a concrete block wall that echoes the dimensions and colors of brick, we offer "Quik Brik," a half-high unit tinted in ranges to simulate real clay brick. While these units are not generally well-suited to residential use, they have a number of commercial applications, and may yield a lower up-front cost than traditional masonry walls.
