Canalside Red cobblestones installed for a pathway at historic waterfront development project. (more pictures)
The Canalside Red cobblestones measure a nominal 9”x5”x4” thick. The thickness can be ordered to suit the application and are available in large blocks as well. The Canalside Red cobblestone is very hard, making it extremely durable for paver applications. The most common Canalside Red cobblestones projects include patios, plazas, walkways, and retaining walls.
The Canalside Red stone was deposited as sand dunes nearly 300 million years ago, when a shallow sea covered what is now the Central United States. The Canalside Red cobblestone is a hard, low absorptive quarzitic sandstone that resists freeze/thaw cycles and has a slip-resistant natural cleft. The antique cobblestones naturally split into layers as it comes out of the ground.
Looking at the cobblestone, the rough flat surface of the split is called natural cleft while the other sides of the quarried stones are seam face or sawn. The color range increases over time, making this reclaimed stone a perfect one-of-a-kind feature in your next project. Contact us today for more information!
