Questions & Answers

The 6 I just got from the store are closer to 7 5/8 x 7 5/8 x 15.5. Is that how they are supposed to be?

The store label and my receipt say 8x8x16... I'm not a mason, is it common for them to be so short? Or is it done this way to force customers to by more then they need? I need 24 inches high, not 23...
Asked by: GG
When you add a 3/8 in grout line, you will get the true 8x8x16. The blocks are designed to be short to accomodate for the mortar.

quantity of block needed for a 44 foot long three row wall

quantity of block needed for a 44 foot long three row wall
Asked by: tino
At 16" nominal length it takes 3 blocks for every 4 feet of wall. You have 44 feet of wall and 44/4 = 11 11 x 3 blocks = 33 blocks for your 44 feet. Every other row is staggered so you need two half blocks for that row. The individual that said you only needed one is not correct since you would be 8" too long on the other end if you start with a half block.

What is the size of the holes? How much conrete do i need to get to fill the holes of 23 blocks?

Asked by: Maya
Thank you for your question. The interior hole dimensions are approximately 5" x 6".The inside shape of the block may vary slightly, but each block has generally 2 5"x6"x8" holes. Therefore, each block has approximately .277 cubic feet that could be filled. After doing the math, that means you need enough material to fill approximately 12.742 cubic feet in the 23 blocks.
