We love working with Stone Mill because of their willingness to work with us on whatever we need. We have been able to take our clients ideas or requests to Stone Mill and they will make it happen. Rarely do we get to simply pick something from stock. It is usually a very customized order and they are willing to go the extra mile to make it happen and stay within budget.

What Sets Stone Mill Apart?
The Perfect Design
Changing the facade of an interior or exterior wall is a significant expense. This is why it’s important to work with a reputable stone manufacturer. Stone is considered to be more expensive than brick, but is more aesthetically pleasing and has been shown to be a beneficial upgrade to add value to your home or commercial facility. The National Association of Home Builders conducted a study that showed adding 300 square feet of manufactured stone increased a home’s value by $8000. This makes it the second highest return on investment for home improvement, second only to insulation.
At Stone Mill, we take great pride in our manufactured stone products. We are so confident in the quality of our stone, that we offer a 50 year warranty against any product defects.
If you have a stone that you want to match and we don’t have that stone profile available, we have the capabilities to create molds to match stone or masonry accessory pieces. Many of our commercial customers find this helps them get the look they want for a fraction of the price of natural stone. We can also customize concrete countertops or sinks to met your specifications and building needs.
When it comes to choosing manufactured stone finishes for your home or commercial projects, our designers have the experience necessary to help you make the right decisions. Our team has worked on multiple projects of varying scopes and styles, so understanding the needs and requirements of our customers is our specialty.
We take the time to listen to your design expectations, and then work hard to create a replica of your ideas. Our goal is to transform your vision into reality!
