Autoclaved Aerated Concrete

Hello Dale, what can you tell about where to buy and what trade contractors know how to build a home out of this stuff.  I'm sold on the benefits, but am I disconnecting on the sourcing and building using this stuff?

Hi Chris,

I am in a similar situation. I love what I read about the qualities of AAC but I'm having a hard time getting connected to the suppliers. I found out about this material when I walked by a house under construction within a half mile of my house. I talked to the owner and he said that there used to be a factory in Casa Grande (E-crete) but it is having financial problems. On the Net all "E-crete" searches take you to the Trustone website e-crete.com. But even that site is not too helpful in reaching the suppliers. The guy building near me said that he was going to get his block from E-crete but they couldn't come through so he ended up getting his block from Contec, in San Antonio, Texas, whose blocks come from Monterey, Mexico. He is building a 6,000 sq. ft. house and said it added about $5,000 to the cost of the blocks to bring them to Phoenix from Mexico.

I am hoping that the Casa Grande factory will be back online soon, although I have no information that that is going to happen. I was told the factory stopped producing about 6 months ago.

I am brand new to this website. I just registered. I hope that I will be able to discuss AAC with others in the Southwest who are using this stuff. I'm in love with it! (Maybe infatuated is more accurate, since I haven't worked with it yet. :-)

Hi Kelly, I did hook up with AAC structures and am actually driving down to Tucson today to meet with them at a project they are building out of it.   I would like, if you think it is possible, to go see the home you mentioned being built out of the stuff.  Thanks !

Chris, I sent you a private message with the phone number of the owner of the house.

Hi Chris,  I am very interested in AAC construction for my new house project in Tucson.  I first saw this used in a condo complex in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, MX.  Since then, I have tried to follow it and am now in need of contacting a supplier, preferably in the Tucson or Phoenix, AZ area. 

In the event you are no longer following this thread, I shall send this as a private message also.

TIA
Joseph
