ST. LOUIS and ROSE HILL

 

What's the Difference?

The bricks in our St. Louis color have a heavier build of white mortar on them that is applied in such a way as to give the appearance of old used bricks that have had most of the old brick mortar removed leaving the remnants of the hardest to remove mortar on them.  When our St. Louis brick is grouted in with our specially blended natrual grey grout, some of the grout will settle in the small pits and crevices of the brick adding to the overall aged look.  Roughly 30% to 35% of the bricks in our St. Louis color will have no white mortar on them.  Our St. Louis color does not have enough grout build-up to present a problem or uncomfortable feel underfoot.

Our Rose Hill color is very heavily textured to add depth to wall and backsplash applications. The texture is much too deep and heavy to be suitable for flooring material.   Rose Hill also has some terra cotta and black colors in it that are not found in our St. Louis.

The photo above shows a St. Louis floor where a lot of grout was left on the surface of the bricks.  While leaving this much grout on the bricks may be bit too much for some people, it does give this floor the look of old used brick.

This basement floor was done using PortStone's Face Brick pattern and the color St. Louis. Our Face Brick patttern is typically used on vertical surfaces to obtain a regular brick wall appearance.  However, it also works great for relatively small floor areas, visually expanding the space.

This shows our St. Louis color in the runningbond pattern where an ivory grout color was used.

Not only is this porch and walkway PortStone's St. Louis color,  the wall under the porch roof is PortStone too!   That is our Rose Hill color which is a perfect compliment to our St. Louis color.  The heavy texture of Rose Hill is too deep for walking surfaces, but it makes an excellent wall or backsplash.

 

 

 

In the photo above, the porch floor is our St. Louis style brick in the Runningbond pattern, and the wall is Rose Hill style brick in the Face Brick pattern.

ROSE HILL 

Rose Hill is intended for use on vertical surfaces only.  Although it's heavy texture makes it unsuitable for use on floors, it makes a beautiful wall or backsplash.

 

This is our Rose Hill color done in the facebrick pattern.  It is very similar to St. Louis, but has a deeper, much heavier texture. Because of the heavier texture, we only recommend using Rose Hill on vertical applications such as walls and backsplashes.
