PortStone offers 3 versions of our St. Louis brick based on various amounts of white mortar that is applied to the surface of the bricks. These versions are 20-25% White, 60-65% White, and 95% White. The percentages refer to the approximate number of bricks in the over all floor that will have some degree of white mortar applied to the surface of the bricks. Be sure to specify which percentage of white mortar you want when you place your order. The brick floor in the photo above is our St. Louis 60-65% White in Herringbone done with a wood inlay.
The photo above shows an example of our St. Louis 20-25% White brick color. The pattern is Standard Runningbond. The brick size in Standard Runningbonad is roughly 3 ½” X 7”. In the 20-25% White style of St. Louis, approximately 20% to 25% of the bricks will have some degree of white mortar applied to the surface of the bricks.
The floor above is an example of our St. Louis 60-65% White brick floor. The brick pattern is Standard Runningbond. In this floor, approximately 60% to 65% of the bricks throughout the floor have some degree of white mortar applied to the brick surface.
This is a PortStone brick floor done in our St. Louis 90-95% White. This brick pattern is our Large Runningbond pattern. The bricks in the Large runningbond pattern are approximately 4 ½ ” X 9”. Approximately 90% to 95% of the bricks in this floor will have some degree of white mortar applied to them. The application process for St. Louis 90-95% White is a little different from the two other styles. In the 90-95% White brick, we apply white mortar to the surface of nearly all the bricks, then remove some of it which leaves a white-ish cast to the surface of some bricks. This style produces a much more white looking floor.
This covered patio was done in our St. Louis 60-65% White brick in the Standard Runningbond pattern. The walls to the left and right in the photo are done in PortStone’s Rose Hill brick color using our Face Brick pattern. Rose Hill and St. Louis are very similar, but Rose Hill is a much more heavily textured brick that makes a great looking brick accent wall but the texture is too heavy to be suitable for use as a brick floor.
This foyer is done in our St. Louis 90-95% White. The brick pattern is herringbone with a wood inlay. For more information on PortStone wood inlay floors, click here.
