Concrete Masonry Construction
The master concrete masonry construction carried out by our skillful professionals and experts, having two-decade experience, involves the following steps:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 are 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.
- 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.
A power saw with a masonry blade, a masonry chisel, and a hammer are involved in this step.
- 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.
- 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.
- Joints Finishing
Our professionals use the finishing tools to press into the mortar.
- 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.
