Color Mortar Blend
Twenty percent of a brick wall's surface is mortar and the effects made possible by colored mortar can be truly transformative. Our colored mortar embodies all the quality associated with standard mortar, but in daring new hues that command admiring attention.
The use of this often-overlooked visual resource can be a touchstone for truly creative architectural design. The right mortar color can blend with and accent the brick itself, bringing that dominant shade to the fore. Alternatively, mortar can be cast in strong contrast to the brick facing to produce unusual and memorable visual effects. In any of our striking shades, our colored mortar can remake that crucial 20 percent – from everyday to extraordinary.
