Hello,

Does anyone know of or can spare a few cinder blocks? I need at least 3 or maybe 4. I live in the Newington area (zip: 22153). Near intersection of FFX Parkway and Pohick rd. Thanks.

Freecycle, Craigs List, or Home Depot. They cost $1.50 each at HD.


This isn't a forum for your free goods and services...crack the wallet.

OP---Are you a first time homeowner? If so...remember this --- Home Depot and Lowes are the places to go when you need something home related.

Spencgr is correct --- You can easily find cinder blocks at Home Depot. When we bought some, we found them in the gardening section.

If you have a problem in your home and are not sure who to call to correct it, post in the "House" forum. Posters will give you advice.

All first time homeowners face a learning curve when it comes to home and yard maintenance and who to call to do work.

And---always remember---if you hire someone to do work in your home, be sure that they are licensed and insured. In VA if you hire someone to do work on your property who isn't licensed and insured, should that person get injured, your homeowners policy won't cover it.

Most local hardware stores (Ace, True Value) will also have them.

You can also try Thumbtack and NextDoor for references in your area.
