Of course, the material plays a role in the prices for hollow blocks - but not only. Read here everything you need to know about prices for hollow blocks.
Materials are crucial
Since the term "hollow block" only describes a construction method, different prices are of course solely due to the materials of which the respective hollow blocks are made. This can be brick clay, but also sand-lime brick, concrete or lightweight concrete.
When considering material prices, however, you should always keep in mind the characteristics - and the additional costs involved in the construction. The better the heat-insulating properties of the stone, the less additional insulation is required - which in turn can often make the overall cost much cheaper. The cost of the stones alone is not necessarily always crucial, it depends on the overall planning.
Stone measures as a price criterion
After the prices for different stone sizes can often be different, of course, also plays a role for the total price, which stone size you use. The mortar consumption varies slightly with the stone size, moreover, compact walls with less mortar joints are often much better thermal insulation. In the end, all of this has a decisive effect on the total price and the total cost of your project.
