Nettleton Concrete, Inc. manufactures custom designed, high quality, architectural concrete masonry units with faces that are split to expose carefully selected and blended aggregates that are obtained from various quarries and manufacturing facilities throughout the South Central United States. These split face concrete masonry units are custom blended, colored, and processed with state-of-the-art grinding, polishing, splitting, and various other related equipment. Nettleton Concrete Split-Face Masonry Units offer a timeless and durable alternative to standard concrete masonry. Nettleton Concrete Split-Face Units are processed on one or more surfaces to expose the natural aggregates and create a natural, rugged appearance. Split-face units will enhance any project with natural aesthetics in an adaptable finish. Nettleton Concrete Split-Face Units are manufactured under strict standards while quality control procedures ensure a consistent product of the highest quality.
Split-Face Units can be produced in single color or two-tone variegated colors enabling the designer to select expressive color combinations that enhance the project's architectural style. Nettleton Concrete Split-Face Units are designed for both veneer and load-bearing walls. While giving the advantages of standard units, split-face units provide a contemporary alternative for either interior or exterior applications. Stylish and adaptable, Nettleton Concrete Split Face Units are available in a variety of sizes and specialty finishes such as scoring, bull-nosing and chamfering.
Integral water repellent is added to each unit to help avoid efflorescence and slow the aging process by preventing water penetration. A jobsite-applied coat of sealer not only enriches the color and appearance of the block but provides added moisture protection for the block and mortar joints in the finished wall. When a water repellent mortar is used, the entire wall is capable of repelling water and providing lasting beauty.
