Flexibility of design
One of the main benefits of building a concrete block wall is that it can take almost any shape, so it is very likely that the finished product will look exactly like the design you had in mind.
If you compare concrete to any other building material like wood, a concrete block wall will be much stronger. The benefit of this is that is you’re planning to build a block retaining wall on your concrete patio, it will be much more resistant to any kind of damage.
A concrete block wall is always more energy efficient than any other construction material because it keeps the interior of your home cool in hot climate and will retain heat in cool weather.
Resistant to extreme weather conditions
Due to its strength, concrete block walls are highly resistant to extreme weather conditions such as floods, high heat and strong winds, plus, concrete is by nature fire resistant, that means your home will be protected in case of a fire emergency.
