Finishing Touches

The little things that can mean so much!

While carpenters frame windows and doors and roofers put up a roof there are some optional steps involved in the concrete assembly should you wish to do so. These are not required steps.

Exterior Grouting

Some face textures will take on an ‘extra-finished look’ by grouting the seams, and others will not need any further attention. Much of it comes down to individual preference.

Parging the Interior Walls

Parging is a coat of mortar applied over a masonry wall as protection or finish. Depending on the interior use and/or finishing plans parging may or may not be desirable.

Painting or Staining The Concrete

Genie Blocks will accept your choice of paint or stain to achieve exactly the look you want. From a solid colour to something more ‘artistic’ ...the choice is yours. If you change your mind or preferences in a few years, old paint can be sand-blasted off and replaced with your new choice(s) …without having a build-up of coats that can suppress the subtle surface textures!
