Customers appreciate our stone furniture and stone signs for their natural beauty, performance characteristics, low maintenance, and durability. We produce custom sizes and offer several finishes.
Pieces for furniture and signs are generally custom-fabricated out of large stones. Our stones are used for many types of furniture including table tops, shelves, benches and picnic tables. Sign use includes general signage, building markers and donor plaques. Lettering and logos can be sand-blasted or carved into our stones.
Some materials are “unfading”, meaning they will hold their color even after many years of exterior use. Others are “weathering” or “semi-weathering”, meaning they will change color (usually to shades of brown) when used outside. A stone’s weathering characteristic is primarily an aesthetic consideration. “Weathering” in and of itself does not adversely affect the performance or durability of a stone. See stones below for weathering characteristics.
