    So long as it doesn't look like plastic or color fade in the sun.

    I think it has a cement-like coating on it (maybe 1/8"-1/4" thick?) making it have the look and feel of concrete. I would like to see how these preform under extreme load applications.

    McKeeland, the pricing is about the same as the higher end concrete products (e.g. country manor). However, the product installs about twice as fast with about half the crew. There was a 10,000 square foot wall that went in for a new Wal-Mart construction in Laurence, Kansas. I was told it went in incredibly quickly; makes sense since each unit is only about five and a half pounds.

    Musclecarboy and tthomass, the surface does have the look and feel of quarried stone since it is imaged from actual stone and is coated with a textured coating. The coating is only about 2-3 mils in thickness, but is incredibly durable. Fading has been shown to be minimal.

    Also, this product has been stress tested and has performed under loads that would similate walls greater than 40 feet. I am not sure if they have tested any higher than that.

    If you are a large contractor, you can get a sample sent to you by contacting them and asking for one. I know they have sent out samples to contractors all over the country for review.

    I am based out of Minneapolis, MN and have worked with all of the people at Millenia since the start of the company. Who is your contact at Millenia? Are you a member of Recon Retaining Wall Systems based out of St. Louis Park, MN? I have looked at the products produced by Recon and like the scale of the product. If you would like to talk more, please let me know and we can coordinate contact information.

    The lawsuit claims negligent supervision by Millenia Wall Solutions during installation. I believe the alleged claim has to do with Millenia engineers not providing proper guidance in filling each row of units during installation...My understanding is that this is not a products liability case.
