We are now stocking the Wall Drain Pro.  It is a simplier, easier to install, way to create drainage at the face of the retaining wall.

 

It reduces labor costs by minimizing or eliminating cutting the block.  It is designed for wall blocks up to 8" tall, but can be easily modified to work with any size block.  The male end snaps into place witrh 4" drain tile & fittings. This patented system was developed by a hardscape contractor.

We have in stock the Superior Clay Products' 8x12 Rectangle Shaped Flue Liners. These are the ones you need to repair your old fireplace & chimney.

The oval shaped ones can reduce the draw of the fireplace making it smoke more or not burn correctly.
