Our Ground Face concrete masonry units showcase the natural beauty of the aggregates used in their manufacture. Each unit is ground on one or more faces, giving the block a rich and unique finish that cannot be duplicated. During their manufacture, a special additive is used to retard efflorescence allowing these units to retain their original appearance. Ground face blocks are maintenance free in both interior and exterior applications, with no need for repainting or recoating. Ground face units are available in a variety of colors, chamfers, sills, scoring patterns as well as special shapes providing the design professional flexibility in concrete masonry construction.
