Building a Concrete Block Wall - How to Build A Block Wall

Quickrete presents the video demonstration showing how to build a block wall using cinder blocks and QUIKRETE® Mason Mix.

 

As per QUIKRETE:

 

Building a block wall. Building a concrete block wall is one fo the more involved building projects, requiring careful planning and a little heavy lifting. Regardless of your skill level, a successful result can be achieved. Every block wall, regardless of whether it is going to be a structural wall or a non structural wall, requires a solid footing. High-Strength QUIKRETE 5000 (or Q-Max Pro) is the recommended product for footing construction because of its high strength and rapid strength gain.

 

Footing should be at a minimum of twice the width of the concrete block.

 

A typical eight by eight by 16 block would require a 16 inch wide footing.

 

The footing depth should extend below the frost line. Make sure to check local building codes for construction requirements in your area. Snap a chalk line on each side of the block wall, as a reference line.
