Making Concrete Blocks Is A Real Business--Not a Fad


Making concrete blocks and all kinds of concrete products is a good business wehich you can start from home. Concrete blocks and other concrete items are always in strong demand, and  they are not a fad product so demand will always be there.

Some other types of businesses enjoy huge success for a short time then just die.A case in point would be sports cards. They were immensely popular for a few years and millions were printed. People who bought them thought they were an "investment" which would almost certainly be worth a lot more in years to come.

Well they did go up in price a little for some time. But in most cases now they are worth little to nothing. People who spent a lot of money  on them were burnt by the millions being printed are left with an almost worthless card collection. Many of the printers are out of the sports card business now.

The fact is that these cards had no intrinsic value, and  were of no real use. They were created for a collector market which eventually died as a result of overproduction of literally millions of cards.

By comparison products such as concrete blocks are made because of the market demand for a useful commodity. The demand for such a product never dies away, and in fact continues to grow year after year.

The obvious observation from this is to get into a real business, producing useful items and you will always have a going concern. Get al;l the information you need to start your own concrete block business at

Make Concrete Blocks Your Business


Manufacturing concrete block  and a variety of other concrete products is an excellent business to be in. There is a constant demand for these products, and they do not go out of style as some items do.
Some businesses are very successful  for a time then they fade in popularity. Making certain types of toys or collectors items can be fantastic for a limited time then the popular focus shifts to something else and you are out of business. Beanie babies were a great success story for several years and millions were sold. Then people realized that they were not the great investment they had thought they were and stopped buying them. Beanie Baby manufacturing died at that point.

Another great example is sports cards. People collected sports cards for many years and some printing companies saw the opportunity in this market. They started cranking out millions of new cards and sold them to an eager crowd of buyers who saw them as an investment opportunity for the future. Within a few years it became obvious that the market was saturated with cards which were declining in value rather than becoming more valuable with time. Collectors stopped buying and the sports card business died to a trickle.

Products of this type have really no intrinsic value and they cannot be put to any real use. They were simply  created for the collector market which soon died due to saturation with the item.

Usable products such as concrete products are intended fill the steady market demand for a useful product. The demand for this type of product never dies away and in fact continues to grow with time.

The obvious idea here is to get into a real business, which produces real and useful items and you will always have a good market for your products.

Youn Can Do Small Concrete Jobs

It is not unusual for someone in the concrete block making business to be asked to do various kinds of small concrete jobs for customers. This is actually a very good source of some extra revenue. Ready Mix concrete which is sold in bags is the fast and easy way to do this work. You just have to add water to the dry concrete mix and you will have top quality concrete which can be used to do any job. You can, if you wish, mix the concrete from scratch but it is simply not worthwhile for a small job. The only possible error you can make with the use of dry concrete mixes is to add too much water. If you do this accidentally, which will happen occasionally, just add additional dry mix to correct the problem.

The tools you will require for this work are a pointed trowel, a wooden float and a rectangular finishing trowel. When you are making repairs on concrete there are certain rules which it is necessary to follow. All loose material must first be removed. Cracks in the concrete should be chiselled out so that they are wider at the bottom than at the top. This "keys" in the repair material so that it will not break loose. Before pouring the concrete into a crack, saturate the old work with water. This will prevent the water from being leeched out of the new concrete.

Concrete uses water to initiate a chemical reaction which causes the cement particles to bind onto the sand and gravel in order to form a solid rock like mass.
Lack of sufficient water will make a weak crumbly concrete that will very soon deteriorate and have to be replaced. Too much water is also a bad thing as it floats away the cement particles from the sand and gravel.

Pre-made mortar mixes are the best solution for building a fireplace,barbeque or the foundation for a small building. The correct proportions of sand,cement and lime in these premixed bags gives a consistent color and quality of work.
