Gomes Landscaping & Masonry, Inc. Builds Massive Retaining Wall with U-Cara™ Multi-Face Wall System in Hawthorne, NY
Unilock Authorized Contractor, Gomes Landscaping & Masonry, Inc. is building this extra-tall retaining wall in Hawthorne, NY. The previous boulder retaining wall was beginning to weaken and could no longer support the steep grade. The homeowners wanted a new, strong retaining wall with a more modern look. Gomes Landscaping chose the U-Cara™ Multi-Face Wall System in Steel Mountain for a stylish and durable retaining wall.
The two-piece U-Cara system uses a combination of backer blocks and fascia panels to create beautiful low, seating and retaining walls. Unilock Sure Track™ backer blocks are installed first, creating a structurally accurate base for the U-Cara fascia panels. The fascia panels are easy to install and come in a wide selection of compatible colors and finishes.
U-Cara backer blocks feature a key and channel system that provides exceptional accuracy and expedites stacking and alignment. The blocks fit together tightly to create extremely stable walls with an even face. They are available in two different sizes to facilitate different wall heights. The standard size backer blocks are ideal for walls under 18”, while the large blocks are for constructing walls over 18”.
The easy-to-install Fascia Panels hang securely on the rails of the backer blocks. This unique system allows you to create stunning wall designs quickly and efficiently. The interchangeable panels are light and easy to work with and the Sure Track mount system allows for accurate placement.
U-Cara fascia panels are available in four different finishes including Umbriano, Series, Smooth Face and Pitched Face. The Smooth Face finish offers a sleek, modern look, while the Pitched Face finish is textured and rugged. Umbriano provides a mottled finish that resembles natural granite. And the Series finish offers a slight texture with exposed granite, quartz and marble particles. Each of the U-Cara finish options feature EnduraColor Plus technology for unmatched beauty and durability.
Along with the four different finishes, U-Cara fascia panels also come in a number of different colors. All the colors and finishes are compatible and work together to provide unlimited design options. Visit the Unilock website to view the full range of color choices.
The U-Cara system is revolutionizing the design of permanent hardscaping features. Previously, updating the look of masonry elements involved a complete landscape renovation. But with the U-Cara™ Multi-Face Wall System, you can easily change the fascia panels to create a new look as often as your client desires.
Whether you are designing a new landscape or renovating existing retaining walls, the U-Cara System can turn an ordinary masonry feature into a stunning focal point. Instructional videos that offer advice on installation and design with the U-Cara Wall System are available on the Unilock website.
