Foundation: Foundation blocks

Reviewed by:

Faced or sculpted cinder blocks were a popular building material 100 years ago, but finding matching replacements today can be a vexing problem. Using vintage equipment, and historic formulas and curing methods, Vintage Block reproduces faced blocks one at a time.

Send an imprint of a block and the company will create a custom design for you. Custom colors are an option for special orders.

Occasionally, old blocks delaminate (the faced portion of the block separates from the body). Vintage Block sells block faces -- a 1-1/2-inch-thick faced veneer for repairing blocks. This veneer product can be affixed to the remnant of the old block.
