15+ companies that sell decorative concrete screen blocks – comprehensive list

breeze blockWhere to find decorative concrete blocks – also known as architectural screen blocks? This question is coming up a lot, and I would like to build the definitive list right here. I tend to believe that you need to buy this stuff locally or regionally — or the shipping costs will kill you. Many thanks to Scathing Jane for researching this list, and to JHL III who sent me the question (and one repeat find) prompting me to finally feature Jane’s list. Do you know of a supplier in your area? Send me an email or leave a comment below, and I will add it to this list. Alphabetically, here’s what we have so far: .

No need to say they are not available anymore in our part of the continent. If someone find theses in New England, Canada or anywhere that could ship in Canada, I would really appreciate your help!
