COAL TOWNSHIP - Making the exterior of your home eye-catching and pleasing is the goal of Rock n Block Materials Inc., 500 State Route 901, Coal Township.

In business for nine years, co-owners Linda Morgante and Bob Dove have established one of the largest outdoor display showrooms in central Pennsylvania at their Route 901 location, showing off everything from retaining walls and paving stones to statues and decorative concrete items.

"We are always working to bring high-quality materials, down to the top mushroom soil and sand to the premium bark mulch we have for our customers," said salesman Mickey Moroz.

Rock n Block carries a number of paving stone brands, including Cambridge Paving Stones, known as "the last paving stone a homeowner will buy."

"Cambridge offers a lifetime warranty on all of its stones, including their color," Morgante said. "The warranty is also transferable should you ever sell your home."

Rock n Block not only makes sure a customer finds the right material, it also trains contractors on the right way to install them.

"We have 22 contractors coming here for a certification class with Cambridge," Morgante said. "We want our customers to be satisfied with their purchase."

Moroz said all a patron needs to do is come in with measurements and ideas, and Rock n Block will help make them into reality.

"We can help them estimate how much material they need, and even deliver it for them on site," Moroz said.

Rock n Block also features decorative concrete pieces, statues and stones, bagged cement mix and concrete blocks. Look for their propane tank-filling specials during the summer months.

Rock n Block is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. Their phone number is (570) 644-1548. Testimonals and design ideas can be found on their website at or on their Facebook page.
