Burnished concrete masonry units mimic the look of polished granite at a fraction of the cost!
Burnished Blocks are manufactured by grinding the top surface off of a precision block face to reveal the aggregate matrix within the block. The installation of Burnished Block is similar to that of precision block, except that a sealer is usually applied afterwards to bring out the color of the aggregates.
Burnished Blocks reveal the natural beauty of their multi-colored interior aggregates to create a finish similar to polished stone at a substantially reduced cost. For example, a structural wall with granite tile facia can cost in excess of $30 per square foot. In contrast, a Burnished Block wall costs just slightly more than a split-face block wall! A sealer is typically applied after installation to accentuate the color of the finished wall.
