**How many Block can be laid with one bag of redi-mix mortar?**

*You can lay ten block with one bag of redi-mix mortar.*

**What size precast concrete steps do you carry?**

*We carry 3’, 3.5’, 4’, 5’, and 6’ wide steps. All of these sizes come in 7” heights. The 3’ wide step also comes in a 6” and 8” height.*

**Do you sell glass block windows?**

*We sell glass block windows for just about any size opening. But, we do not install glass block windows.*

**How many yards of concrete will it take to do my driveway?**

**How do I help cure and protect my new concrete driveway?**

**How many courses of block does it take to build a 16 feet high wall?**

*Most blocks are nominal eight inches high. So, if you use the factor of 1.5, you will find the amount of courses. In the case of a 16 feet high wall, multiply 1.5 x 16 = 24. It takes 24 courses to achieve 16 feet.*

**How many blocks do I need for a 100 feet long wall?**

*Again, most blocks are sixteen inches long. Thus, if you use a factor of .75, you will find how many block to use in one course. For a 100 feet long wall, you would multiply 100 x .75 = 75. It takes 75 blocks to make a wall 100 feet.*

**If my wall was 225 square feet how many blocks would it take to build the wall?**
