Concrete masonry units or concrete block are a long lasting, fireproof and structurally sound product used in many commercial projects. Though block is often hidden behind drywall or paint, it is an integral part of a building’s strength and safety.
Clients can rely on Ib Jensen Masonry’s expertise in block construction whether a designer’s needs require for load bearing or non-load bearing wall erection. Our experience will guarantee structural walls are built to code and can help contractors find solutions to problems that can arise in the construction process.
