Cinder Block Wall Foundation
Calculate the necessary cinder block by square feet. The typical cinder block is 8 by 16 inches meaning that a cinder block covers an area of 1.125 square feet. The total cinder blocks needed will be 1.125 times the area of the wall but be sure to subtract the openings such as windows, doors or any other architectural feature. The wall area is calculated by height times its length. Remember to add five percent to account for waste or any material that will be damaged. When completing the estimate make sure you have also included some material that will be needed as fillers that might be required when the height or wall to wall dimensions are not per plan.
