North Star Stone
Well written article with great pictures to support the use of stone. It is fun to place stone in some unexpected places in the home our outside. After the project is completed, you wonder how come you never thought of it before.

Stone stands the test of time for design and as you pointed our stone veneers are a great product. We manufacture our own stone veneer and custom color every batch of stone to help the client get just the right color and intensity. If any of the readers are having trouble finding the right style or color of stone, I would encourage you to look at our website or contact us.
