Sunshine State concrete masonry producers are revisiting a March 2021 promotion to continually spotlight the potential of gray and architectural block in single-family residential building. Their March Masonry Matchup has kicked off with a bracket of 16 homes posted at the portal of their Block Strong campaign. Weekly voting tallies atwww.BlockStrong.comwill determine which homes advance to brackets of eight, four and two on March 8, 15 and 22. Voting closes March 28 with a champion named March 31.
Portal visitors and voters will see a host of home styles, from classic Mediterranean to more coastal motifs. The homes’ common thread, concrete masonry walls, is known for strength and durability as well as resistance to fire, storms, and termites. Many buyers might not realize that concrete block is also one the easiest and versatile solutions for the design of a new home.
