8 Things to Look for at a Techo-Bloc Showcase
There’s no doubt about the fact that there’s a lot to do, see and experience at a Techo-Bloc showcase. In order to get the full Techo-Bloc experience, though, we’d like to draw your attention to the following 8 areas:
1. Check Out Unmatched Product Variety and Versatility
When compared to other hardscaping manufacturers, Techo-Bloc offers incredible style variety and versatility that you just won’t find elsewhere.
Whether you desire the storybook charm of Maya slabs, the sophisticated look of Tux pavers, the modern appeal of Graphix wall stones, or the old world beauty of Venitian steps, you’ll find a style of masonry that suits your individual tastes and works within the scope of your property.
Each product line features an array of different colors, cuts, shapes, sizes and textures, all which enable you to create a project with a custom look – without the hassle of actually having to do custom work.
2. View Demos and Get Your Hands Dirty
One of the perks to attending a Techo-Bloc showcase is that you have the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the various product offerings and see firsthand how the materials come together in the installation process.
Often, showcases feature live demonstrations that will show you, step-by-step how to construct unique patios, stunning swimming pool decks, inviting fireplaces and everything in between. You’ll also have the chance to physically touch the products and gain confidence in their strength and structural integrity.
3. Learn Time-Saving Tips
Techo-Bloc strives to make the installation process as simple as possible for contractors and do-it-yourselfers alike.
While it offers user-friendly instructional guides for installation, though, these guides can’t show you in real-time how to avoid commonly made mistakes or how to cut down on the time it takes to complete your work without sacrificing quality.
Attending a showcase could empower you with incredible time-saving tips that will make a huge difference in the project experience.
4. Learn To Overcome Installation Challenges and Obstacles
No matter how detailed or thorough an instructional guide or manual is, there’s no match for a face-to-face encounter with a Techo-Bloc expert – especially when you’re talking about the most commonly faced challenges and obstacles throughout the installation process.
Having the chance to listen to a professional tell you how to nip these problems in the bud and overcome them quickly will make the entire project smoother, faster and more enjoyable for everyone.
5. Boost Efficiency
When attending a Techo-Bloc showcase, we urge you to constantly keep your ears open for an and all tips on how to increase the overall level of efficiency throughout both the design and installation processes.
Experts should be able to offer suggestions on how to go about laying out specific patterns for pavers and slabs, or how to best arrange blocks for walls so that you can get started on the work faster and enjoy a higher rate of success.
They should also be able to help you work more efficiently through the installation process so that you don’t expend any more time, effort, or money than is absolutely necessary.
6. Get Design Inspiration

The sky truly is the limit, and after viewing some of the many inspirational ways in which Techo-Bloc can be used, there will be nothing holding you back from creating something truly unique and special.
