When you consider that this natural stone has been almost 500 million years in the making, you can be assured of a design product with lasting beauty and timeless elegance.
An independent accredited laboratory reported Upper Canada Ledgerock to be “extremely strong and suitable for typical long term outdoor applications”. This provides architects, builders and home owners with confidence to use Upper Canada products wherever their imagination leads them.
2 Colours Available
The Chocolate – Mocha colour pallet: Between the two end colours of Upper Canada Ledgerock, Chocolate and Mocha, exists a wide spectrum of opportunities. While both are rich and warm, it is by creatively blending the two colours that one can achieve a rich montage of light and texture.
Our Chocolate Ledgerock is a deep, rich stone with beautiful earth tones and reddish and beige hues that complement the colours of the natural environment beautifully.
Our Mocha Ledgerock is distinct from the Chocolate, yet it possesses hints of the reddish-brown earth tones that make it a natural counterpart. This new colour will inspire your imagination and garner rave reviews.
Excellent Stone Quality
Upper Canada Ledgerock is an exceptionally strong and durable stone. How the product stands up to the elements has a lot to do with how little water the stone absorbs and how it resists breakdown caused by natural freeze-thaw cycles.
It has 0.40% water absorption and a miniscule 0.04% freeze-thaw loss.
Testing of Upper Canada Ledgerock by an independent accredited laboratory reported a very low water absorption of 0.40% and a miniscule 0.04% freeze-thaw loss.
Gentle Quarrying & Precision Splitting
Our Chocolate quarry consists of interbedded layers of chocolate and mocha limestone which are quarried without drilling or blasting, thereby maintaining the natural integrity of the stone. These carefully extracted pieces are then guillotined to create one of Ontario’s finest line of natural bed building stones.
Natural bed Ledgerock imparts an authentic, rugged look reminiscent of architectural gems found in many of the great cities around the world. The difference here is that our Chocolate – Mocha Ledgerock product line imparts the uncommon beauty of deep, rich chocolate earth tones and beige coffee cream hues.
Our natural bed Chocolate Ledgerock is available in a thickness range from 4” to 10”. Our natural bed Mocha Ledgerock sizing is available from 5” to 10” thick.
