Ordering block

593 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  mark sr
I gave up finding a mortarless block system so just going to go with the standard 8x8x16. Do I need to order corners separately? Home Depot didn't have a clue, they just said I'd get a pallet and whats on it is what you get. Just want to make sure I get what I need. I figured it'll take around 800 blocks, with 5 corners.

A pallet of block will come with both the corner and stretcher blocks.
I can't speak for HD block, as I can buy concrete block locally here with far better options for FAR better pricing. There's really no such thing as a corner block on an 8" wide wall, just a flush end block. Typically, between 20-30% of 8" block on a pallet will be either single of double end flush block. Knowing how HD beats the heck out of their suppliers, they probably don't mix any flush block in at all..........

If I need a lot of block I'll go to the block supplier/manufacturer. They send out a mixture of both types on a pallet, same thing if you go there to buy several dozen individual blocks. If I just need a few block, I'll go to Lowes. They generally have both types on their pallets.
