Quality
We use only the highest quality natural stone 
Not all granite is created equal.  Our stone is inspected by our reputable suppliers for pits, fissures, and defects long before it makes it to our suppliers' show rooms, or our shop.  Our clients also get to view and approve the entire slab for themselves before purchase.  Additionally,  they have the  opportunity to participate in the counter top layout decisions.  This ensures that their favorite parts of the stone can be placed at the most visible locations possible, and the parts they like least can be avoided.

Steel rod reinforcement at cutouts
For added strength and durability, we epoxy rods in the underside of the counter top at the sink cutouts, at places of heavy veining, or wherever  we deem necessary.  (See photo above right)

Hand-polished without the use of waxes  
Some fabricators polish the edges only up to a certain point and then get a final "shine" by rubbing on waxes or chemical enhancements. The problem with this method is that after a few months, the shine wears off and the edges become dull.  Our edges are polished to a permanent shine.

Each granite, marble, and limestone job is sealed with a high-quality impregnating sealer

We use the best stone sealants --they penetrate the stone instead of just sitting on top of it.  A stone surface with an exceptional seal results in improved stain-resistance, and it will remain protected for at least a full year--often much longer.

Every soapstone kitchen receives a final sanding after installation to create a perfect honed finish.

A strict standard of workmanship is followed for every project

Craftsmanship
Outstanding attention to detail & design
We notice everything--and you will too!  A radius here, a curve there, a return detail at the end of a counter top run...these are the things that make the difference between a cookie-cutter kitchen and the one we will create for you.  Our custom details give you that "something extra" that large mechanized shops won't (and often can't) produce.

Under-polished overhangs
It takes extra time, but we think it's worth it.  A truly comfortable and inviting home has counter tops that feel smooth to the touch even along the bottom edge.


Seams "dressed" in the shop to ensure minimal visibility 
Before polishing your counter top, we set up our shop to mimic the layout of your kitchen.  When the edges are polished as one piece, they appear to be one piece--no dips or recesses at the seam!

Trained and educated by Stone Fabricators' Alliance  (See side bar)


Style
Hundreds of stone selections from basic to exotic. 
Choosing from a selection of ten four-inch square
stone samples is no way to select the material for your home!  If you are interested in soapstone, contact us to schedule a visit to our shop. We stock the largest selection of soapstone slabs in Indiana, Ohio, or Kentucky. For those of you leaning toward some other type of natural stone, our suppliers' show rooms display hundreds of full size slabs of granite, marble, limestone, & onyx. Each has a knowledgeable and dedicated staff to answer your questions.

Complimentary design service  
We will offer suggestions for wall color, layout design, counter top details, and material selections.  We'll guide you through the process of choosing your sink, and faucet. If you need help with cabinets or architectural details, we can refer you to outstanding woodworking professionals. And of course, we will help you choose the best possible stone for your home.
