Agree… CMU’s… Concrete Masonry Units. “Block” would be the inspector ‘slang’ word.

After being a mason for a number of years I would call them things— CMU’s… Concrete Masonry Units—When you see the grey ones that look like compressed cinder you could call them blocks aka cinder block

Thanks guys… clear as mud. I use CMU or “Concrete Block” for the gray ones… just didn’t know “Brock” was a industry term… :smiley:

I guess my point is… It doesnt look like “concrete”
