Advantages of Eco-Bloques

Aesthetically Pleasing - Eco-Bloques buildings can be made to look like any kind of finished structure, however, most people who opt for this type of construction find they love the look of the block itself and the adobe look of a finish plaster. Exteriors typically are given a weather-resistant skin which can be colored or left natural and interiors plastered with a variety of mixtures or left exposed. Arches and rounded corners are an option that allow for flexibility in design. They have a look and a feel that envelops their occupants and blends beautifully with the natural world.

Fire and Pest Resistant - Virtually Soundproof - Eco-Bloques are so dense a building material that occupants are "shut off" from the outside world. So much so that sound recording studios have been built with pressed block for that very quality. Earth block buildings create their own world on the inside which most people find is an added bonus.

Non-Toxic - Eco-Block making itself is a non-toxic process, therefore, the buildings themselves are clean. Often, man-made ingredients of modern construction set up an environment that is filled with toxic chemicals and gases. Eco-Bloques are a frequently chosen material for home construction for those people suffering from chemical sensitivity. It's a win-win for both occupant and the community when new buildings are constructed with earth-friendly materials. 

Durable - When you consider that the oldest structures standing throughout the world today are made of earth, the statement that Eco-Bloques are durable speaks for itself. 

Uses Available and Abundant Raw Materials - Three ingredients make up the right combination of dirt used for great Eco-Bloques: sand, clay and a small amount of aggregate material which is combined with a small percentage of Portland cement. The only other ingredient needed for wall construction is water (to make the mud slurry that binds the blocks together).

Made On-Site - No waiting involved! That's a plus when your builder is ready to start. There are no transportation issues or costs.

Environmentally Friendly - When you consider the attributes listed above, the underlying theme is that building with Eco-Bloques is environmentally friendly. From the construction of the block itself to the finished product, this is a way to build that benefits everyone.
