NATURAL RECLAIMED STONE
Reclaimed stone is uniquely different; few sharp edges, consistent colors, or predictable sizes, which is exactly why we like it. Worn and weathered surfaces, wonderful subtle old colors, and a variety of sizes and shapes are the hallmarks of reclaimed stone. Reclaimed stone is also a sustainable choice given that the energy required for production has already been expended. From cobblestones to quarry tailings, reclaimed stone wears its past well.

The Versatility of Reclaimed Stone Plank Pavers
Reclaimed Cobblestone: The Most Ancient Paving Method
Cobblestones are the most common and plentiful reclaimed stones, but that doesn’t make them less desirable. Old cobbles, with their mixed colors and sizes, offer truly unique visual appeal. There is no mistaking a reclaimed cobblestone driveway, walkway, or patio with one paved with newly fabricated cobbles. The reclaimed stones are simply much more stunning. So if you’re thinking granite, which is typical in the USA, let’s expand that thought to include European bluestone, sandstone, and porphyry cobblestones, and occasionally basalt.
Reclaimed paving stone is not limited to cobblestone. We source larger squares, rectangles, and planks domestically and from around the world. Stone has been used as pavers for centuries in Europe and Asia and the older the better. Foot worn surfaces and centuries of weathering add amazing patinas to this old stone. In the USA we repurpose stone not originally used as pavers to create planks and large scale pavers. Bridge blocks, retaining wall blocks, and curbstones are examples of the materials we source.
reclaimed wallstone & veneer
Why wait decades for your wall to weather when you can build it with reclaimed wallstone or veneer? We fabricate both thin and full bed veneers from a variety of reclaimed stones so you can add the old style look to new walls and structures. Quarry tailings and large stone blocks exposed to the weather for a century also make great wall stone. You can add this historical character to either new construction or restoration.
reclaimed capstones & coping
Our gauged reclaimed curbstone planks are especially useful as caps and coping. They can be used at full thickness, of course, but thinner, more consistent thicknesses make the stone more easily managed and easier to install.
reclaimed steps, treads & landings
Our step grade reclaimed curbstone is a great option for steps and smaller landings, but reclaimed bridge blocks and quarry tailings really make a statement with their scale. There is no limit to how reclaimed stone can be used in this product set.
reclaimed home & garden accents
We’ve seen some great stone accents designed by creative architects, designers, and contractors. Fire tables and pits, benches, chairs, tables, millstones, historic streetscape, standing stones, and more. Reclaimed stone accents fit easily into the natural environment, and look like they’ve always been there.
