Insulating concrete blocks are building roof blocks specifically designed to provide both structural support and improved thermal insulation for a building. These blocks contain insulating materials within their structure that provide better thermal performance compared to conventional concrete blocks.

Insulating concrete blocks can improve the energy efficiency of the building by providing better thermal resistance, reducing heat transfer through the roof, and keeping interior temperatures more stable.

When using insulating concrete blocks, proper construction is essential to ensure effective insulation and structural integrity. Blocks should be properly aligned and joints sealed to avoid thermal bridging that occurs when heat migrates through more conductive materials in the building envelope.
