Energy Efficency

EF Block insulates homes exceptionally well, reducing energy costs and carbon emissions.

Indoor Environmental Quality:

When we build with EF Block we create air tight environments. These sealed environments allow owners to control air quality. Specifically, EF block controls heat gain allowing owners to manage the temperature inside their homes. Finally, homes are also more protected from noise and insects.

Recycled Content:

We build EF block with recycled material, saving resources. Most importantly, this allows us to decrease materials entering and sitting in landfills, materials that may not biodegrade for over 500 years.

CREATING Responsible and durable material to build baja dream homes

We transform Styrofoam sitting in landfills, non-biodegradable waste polluting the ecosystem, into durable, fire-resistant, and highly insulated concrete blocks.

These blocks are then stacked into any shape imaginable with steel bar reinforcement.

The end result is a beautiful one-of-a-kind home with exceptional insulation.

why build
with
ef block?

  • A history of successful use for decades
  • Environmentally responsible
  • Cost savings to homeowners

Builders have used EF Block for decades in America. This method of building concrete has become a proven way to clean the local environment while controlling energy costs for home owners.

This combination of cost savings and green tech has encouraged both those interested in saving on their energy bill and those interested in building responsibly.

EF Block Mexico owns rights to the newest EF Block manufacturing machines. This allows us to manufacture blocks locally in Baja California Sur, passing the lower shipping costs to future Baja home owners.

The Process of Creating and Using EF Block

1) Stack the Block

2) Rebar the Block

3) Concrete the Block

The EF Block process transforms standard recycled polystyrene into durable highly insulated blocks. Above all, these blocks are fire, earthquake, hurricane, and tornado resistant, ready to be shaped and stacked into any design.

As builders stack EF Block during construction, steel rods (rebar) are inserted grid-wise throughout the cores of the block.

These block cores are then filled with concrete without the need for mortared seams.

The final result is a custom-designed construction built with high insulation.

 

Once EF Block is constructed, various fascias or stucco can be applied directly to the block, customizing the appearance of the finished walls. This eliminates the need for thermal wrap, tar paper, and wire mesh applications. Construction times are significantly reduced.

Above all, EF Block technology eliminates the need for costly insulation applications. The Block is the only insulation needed.
