EverBlock Wall vs. Traditional Drywall Wall - Which Is Cheaper?
Posted by EverBlock on Apr 4th 2017
Some people have asked about the price of EverBlock, with the reaction… “I LOVE the concept, brilliant and FUN! But way out of my price range to build a wall partition in my apartment/home”.
So let’s settle this misconception once and for all.
- There are no other products on the market like EverBlock. Our modular system is fully functional and designed to be used time and time again for a multitude of different objects or furniture designs. EverBlock is a premium product in the world of temporary walls, and requires NO tools to build with.
- EverBlock is priced by the current cost of high-impact polypropylene plastic and color additives. Each block is also outfitted with UV inhibitors to protect the color for up to 8+ years if outdoors. However, we are still always looking into ways to cut costs for our customers and block enthusiasts.
- In many cities building a wall or temporary wall in an apartment building or complex is generally frowned upon by building owners and landlords - if even allowed at all. In 90% of the buildings a permit is required by the city to build a wall partition; that is if the landlord even approves for the build.
*The national average cost of a building permit is $1,156 in 2017, with most homeowners spending between $451 and $1,862. The price has gone up since 2015.
Therefore you are limited in your options, and will have to wait for proper permits. This could take weeks, even months. All you want to do is build a partition, why should this be so difficult?
We decided to put this to the test:
As you can see there is a definite price difference, with EverBlock System being the less expensive of the two.
Now, here are the added benefits of the EverBlock System.
Picture this… You live in a small apartment or home and have an EverBlock wall partition to separate your living room space into an office area. Your family or best friends are in town and you invite them over for a dinner party. Due to the small living space, you are limited with the number of guests that you can entertain and now need additional room and seating. HELP!
Simply take the wall apart (no tools required and 30 minutes tops) and use the blocks to build stools, chairs and a table to eat on. Now you have extra room to get your party on, and guests are comfortable. When they leave, build your wall again. Problem solved!
EverBlock has lifelong value!
