There are budget materials, which of advantages differ not only in cost, but also in various qualities and unique characteristics of the material. One such solution is a foam concrete block.
First of all, it is worth highlighting the material consumption per 1 cubic meter, the price tag is several times cheaper than the usual analogues, namely 2.4 thousand rubles.
