The Northshore Granite
Granite is perhaps the most famous natural stone on earth. Although the colour can vary greatly, the texture remains consistent. The look of granite is almost indistinguishable from weathered natural stone.
LeSueur County Limestone
LeSueur County limestone owes its name to the natural limestone found on the banks of the Minnesota River, it is also found throughout Europe.
Old World is a smooth retaining wall block with bevelled edges. This structure can be used to replicate a vintage industrial feel or in a contemporary setting where clean, straight lines are desired.
There is a range of staining products that can be used to stain a concrete surface. These range from water born concrete stains, acid etch stains, and hybrids products that combine features of both.
Water born stains are easy to apply and environmentally friendly. They come is a very wide range of colors (from light tans to deep brown, gray, charcoal and even black). Variation in the color of the wall can be achieved by applying multiple highlights after the base coat has been applied.
Acid etch stains require an additional degree of care and skill to properly apply. Acid etch stains create deep colors (usually dark browns and rusts) and a natural variation in the color which adds to the authenticity of the finished wall appearance.
ReCon Walls specification covers only the water born products. For additional information on acid etch stains and hybrid stains, please contact ReCon Walls.
