The City of Washington
Known as “Washington” or simply, “D.C”, this city is the only federal district in the states and is the capital of the nation. While it lies beside the east side of the Potomac River, it also is linked to land borders of two different states, Maryland and Virginia. Washington covers a vast land area of 61.05 square miles, including 7.29 square miles of water. Drawing in many tourists to see great landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, the National Mall, and the Jefferson Pier, this city is notably one of the most visited cities in the U.S.

Although many don’t think about it too often, quite an overlooked aspect of Concrete Blocks Washington DC are their names! Considering the fact there are so many different names used for block referral, it can get confusing sometimes. Below is a list of concrete block names we typically use within our place of business. Do you have another name you are more accustomed to using? Please feel free to let us know. We’ve heard them called: barrier blocks, mafia blocks, interlocking v-blocks, building blocks, large concrete blocks, bin blocks, stackable blocks, gravity wall blocks, large concrete retaining wall blocks, leftover concrete blocks, ecology blocks, lego blocks, storage wall blocks, waste blocks, jumbo blocks, and soldier blocks.
Available on the regular for Washington and surrounding cities is called the “v-wedge” block. These Concrete Blocks Washington DC can be easily fit together for a variety of projects by using the v-wedge located on the top and side of the block and the reverse v-wedge located on the bottom and opposite side. Located atop the block is a rebar handle loop, which makes moving these blocks a simple task. These blocks are available in two different sizes: 1) a 6’x2’x2’ block, weighing 3,600lbs and 2) a 3’x2’x2’ block, weighing 1,800lbs. On a typical trailer bed, 13 of the 6’ blocks or 26 of the 3’ blocks can be situated.
Coming in many different shapes, sizes and styles, concrete blocks are a great addition to many kinds of projects. Although they are often overlooked, they are constantly helping to make a difference in many areas of society, business, and construction. Some of the common uses of concrete blocks can include: protection of utilities, separation of property, propane or fuel tank security, anchor weights, concrete retaining walls, road district storage, storage bins, general weight, traffic and parking lot management. If you have any further ideas on how concrete blocks can be utilized, please feel free to let us know!
When it comes to transportation of your Concrete Blocks Washington DC, we provide either delivery or pick up. For delivery, your jobsite must be equipped with the adequate equipment in order to offload the blocks once the delivery semi arrives. For the truck to properly enter and exit your site, there must be a space of 48’-53’ available. If you cannot meet this requirement, we can discuss drop off of the blocks at another nearby location and use smaller machinery to transport the blocks to the actual jobsite. Because the trailer is typically a height of 5’ and the blocks are each 2’ in height, the machinery you plan on using to unload the blocks must be able to reach a height of at least 7’+. In addition, depending on the size of block being delivered, your equipment must also be able to carry up to 3,600 or 1,800lbs. These blocks take no special rigging; and all you will need to do is attach a chain to the rebar handle loop located atop the block. If you prefer transportation via pick up, you will need to give us a call and speak to someone from our team. They will set you up with a date and time to visit our plant and we will have someone load the Concrete Blocks Washington DC onto your trailer for you! All we ask is that you provide us with a set of chains and/or straps in order to secure the blocks to the trailer bed. We would love to address any concerns or questions you may have regarding our transport methods, so please give us a call if you have any!
