ABOUT US

Classic Rock Face Block Slider 4

Classic Rock Face Block opened its doors in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 2006. Rock face block can be found on many of the older homes and buildings in and around the Fort Wayne area. As these homes near their century mark, deterioration in the block had become evident, with no like replacement to be found.

 

Our owner saw this need and set out to get historically accurate replacement blocks into the hands of these historic property owners. In the following years, we have worked on perfecting a more modern and efficient manufacturing process. We continually search around the country for new design patterns. And we continually research how the use of this block-shaped home design in the early 20th century.

 

Our passion is to help historic property owners around the country restore their piece of history to its former glory. Every new project is an exciting opportunity for us to play a part in beautifying an old home or building and bringing it back to life.

We know owning and restoring a historic property is an adventure in itself, and we hope you bring us along for the ride!
