CREATIVE NATURAL STONE – ARMOUR & GUILLOTINE ARMOUR SPECIFIC!

NATURAL STONE IS JUST US!

Since inception we have been playing in the industry of natural stone like children in a candy store. We just happen to be located in a natural stone playground right here in Ontario, Canada. 

Home to numerous stone manufacturers, and an international belt for world-renown limestone and granite materials, we have had our hands fulll sourcing the best of the best stone, so that our retail and commercial clients have access to the best quality and trendiest material available.

We have since ventured into the international markets, and started importing complimentary product from around the world. This practice only made our life more exciting, while at the same time brought in an even more motivated clientele who we are happy to call friends and family. 

With our niche being natural stone here in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, we know there is an onus on our CREATIVE team to be well educated in our product line, as the majority of our material is foreign to most shoppers. We absolutely love being a resource, and generating ideas with our clientele on how our products can and should be incorporated into designs both interior and exterior. 

Beyond the elaborate inventory of natural stone, we also have a large line of stone landscape materials, interlocking pavers wallstone, thin stone veneers, ground and bed covers such as mulch, soil, aggregate & decorative stones, copings and caps, steps, random slabs, decorative boulders and garden stones, square cut pavers and flagstone, armour stone, and a large variety of guillotine products and armour stones.

With that being said, we of course have a fleet of unique trucks and equipment that allow us to delivery product anywhere in southern ontario, and on a regular basis. Our delivery zone focuses on the following markets, yet is not limited to:

•Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, Cambridge, Elmira, St. Jacobs, Hawksville, Conestogo, Listowel, Elora, Fergus, Arthur, Erin, New Hamburg, Baden, Wellesley, Plattsville, Ayr, Ariss, Maryhill, Rockwood, Aberfoyle, Puslinch, Belwood, Stratford, St. Marys, Mitchel, New Dundee, Mannheim, Morriston, Hespler, Preston, Haysville, St. Agatha, Petersburg, St. Clements, Heidelberg, Linwood, Flordale, Bloomingdale, Roseville, Winterbourne, West Montrose, Edin Mills, Halton Hills, Acton, Georgetown
