hello my name is cinderblock

What’s in a name?

Why are we called Cinderblock?

A cinder block (also known as a breeze block) is a concrete block used for building walls and foundations.

As a software company targeting contractors, the name “Cinderblock” checked a few boxes:

  • Construction related
  • Memorable
  • Easy to spell

But a ‘cinder block’ is more than just another brick in the wall, it frames our values, both as a product and a company: simplicity, stability, and reliability.

Simplicity; a cinder block is simple, its use is obvious, and it does exactly what it says on the tin.

Stability; they make buildings out of cinder blocks. Enough said.

Reliability; a cinder block is reliable, and so are we. We’re straight shooters and won’t make promises we can’t deliver on.

A solid cinder block structure doesn’t build itself; you need a great team to put it together. So here’s a BIG thank you to the incredibly talented group of people responsible for designing, architecting, and building Cinderblock, a software application that can be maintained and supported for years to come. Thank you guys!
