About Our Ground Face CMU

Ground face CMU, or Concrete Masonry Unit blocks, are ground on their face to create a distinctive, rich finish that gives them a unique, natural beauty. Besides the attractiveness of these units, they offer a tremendous advantage in construction as they are maintenance-free. There is no need to repaint or recoat these units — they look great just as they are.

For flexibility and quality in construction for both interior and exterior applications, ground face finish blocks are always an excellent option.

Other Valuable Ground Face Block Benefits

Fantastic looks, solid construction and virtually maintenance-free ownership are only a few of the many advantages our ground face finish products provide. The material also offers excellent resistance to moisture — you’ll have fewer issues with mold, mildew and rot, which ensures the longevity of the finish. Concrete masonry units also form a tight seal, which prevents heated and cooled air from escaping and also keeps the outside air from penetrating. Building owners will appreciate the lower utility bills!

The material is also non-combustible, which provides excellent fire protection. Its exceptional soundproofing properties help with noise reduction and maximize acoustic performance as well. From a project execution standpoint, ground face concrete block ensures a fast installation that saves time and reduces the likelihood of cost overruns.
