Difference between concrete and block homes?

2 Replies

What is the difference between a concrete home and a block one... Is it the same? if not, how are they different. Plus, it would be very helpful to know what the type of home built materials are.


The correct term is “concrete block (stucco)”....CBS. The blocks are made of course from concrete, you know, common cinder blocks, hollow cores. People mistakenly/generically refer to them as concrete homes. There are a few homes, Burg and Divosta homes, that actually construct with solid poured concrete, but very rare.

Concrete homes would be if they poured the walls or foundation etc. block homes are built from concrete blocks or CMU Concrete masonry units. Concrete is the more expensive but both are durable.
