About Trendstone®

Echelon’s Trenwyth Trendstone ground face CMU blocks are pre-finished, integrally colored concrete blocks with one or more faces ground to expose the variegated colors of the natural aggregates. Trendstone goes beyond standard ground face concrete block by applying a clear satin gloss acrylic to the exposed face of each concrete block to accentuate the natural beauty of the aggregates and to provide moisture resistance. Available in dozens of colors that can be matched or contrasted with other Trenwyth products, Trendstone ground face masonry blocks provide durability and the vibrant stone look needed to bring your project to life.
