Disadvantages of concrete masonry construction
There is no doubt about the fact that concrete masonry construction has several advantages but at the same time it has some disadvantages which cannot be ignored so it is important to consider all these disadvantages. The biggest disadvantages of concrete masonry construction are the involvement of heavy materials and the complexity of the materials such as these stones and breaks along with number of other concrete blogs which can be extremely complex at times. The heavy materials cannot be carried especially in the traditional vehicles so for transporting these heavy materials from one place to another place there must be some special order or catalog especially for the heavy stones for the construction of buildings.
The other disadvantage of concrete masonry construction involves the stability of the structures which completely depends on the foundation of the building along with their architecture. If during the procedure of building any kind of crack or disposal occur, then it should always be dealt with extreme care because the moisture infiltration can damage the complete structure of the building and the overall procedure of the building, especially in the long run. The activities of concrete masonry construction cannot be carried especially during any kind of cold condition or weather conditions such as heavy rain because the moisture can ultimately affect the building procedure. Concrete masonry construction also requires extreme amount of delicate care along with proper project planning before the start of project to manipulate all the necessities and to particularly manage the manpower.

Mater Masonry Concrete Construction
The Master of It carried out by our skillful professionals and experts, having two-decade experience. The master masonry concrete construction involves the following steps:
1. Creating a foundation layout
The first step is to lay out the simple rectangular outline of the foundation.
To create a flat-bottom trench for the foundation, excavate the earth. Our professionals do this to pour a block of concrete for supporting the cement block wall.
3. Foundation Pouring
Construction of the wall started after it has completely hardened and cured. Foundation pouring is a difficult phase. Therefore, concrete is poured carefully into a hollow form lining the sides of the excavation trench and leveled.
4. Lay the First Course of Block
An outline for the cement block wall is marked onto the surface of the foundation, using a chalk line. Place a thick layer of approximately 1-inch mortar on the foundation inside its outline.
The first course of cement blocks is positioned into the mortar and tapped so that they do not spread in the foundation mortar.
Subsequent blocks joined with previous blocks after the end of blocks are covered with mortar. Mortar helps prevent moisture and air leakage and reinforces the structural unit.
5. Block’s cutting
An untrained person without any experience or learning cannot carry out this step. Contact us at Delgado’s and sons’ enterprises’ link and get guidance regarding anything related to construction.
6. Lay Subsequent Courses of Block
Hire a knowledgeable person to carry out each step with great care, then do the installation of the second and subsequent block in the same fashion as the first.
7. Reinforcement Addition
To increase the strength and ductility or prevents shrinkage and cracking. The experts at our company highly recommend reinforcing horizontal joints with metal reinforcement strips laid into the mortar after every third or fourth course of blocks.
8. Joints Finishing
Our professionals use the finishing tools to press into the mortar.
9. Blocks Capping
We perform this step with great care and cover the tops of cement block walls with solid concrete cap blocks.
Our professionals make sure cleanliness to be done with perfection before ending a project. Clear the masonry surfaces by removing stains, debris and mortar, and grout droppings, etc. The process of cleanup is extremely important and crucial not just before the start of construction procedure but also at the end of construction procedure as well and all this can be maintained with the help of delicate care and the experience of the expert team having proper license to work.
