QUALITY WORKMANSHIP



STONE WORK


One of the most beautiful and natural materials to work with is stone.

Properly done stone work requires highly skilled masons whom have specialized training in their craft.
Having the ability to cut and fit a product which is non-uniform in composition, and to blend colour variation so it looks correct, takes years of training.

Natural Stone is quarried from various regions throughout Ontario; and therefore provides a unique visual effect which enhances the appearance of traditional, heritage, and contemporary homes alike.

Cultured stone (man-made); represents a less expensive alternative for those clients that seek an upscale result, but at a more budget conscious price point.

Popular today, are outdoor stone grills, and kitchen environments; where the beauty of stone can be viewed pool side, or as a key backyard feature.

Stone can be installed to update the look of interior fireplaces and feature walls.
