OUR WORK ETHIC
Service. Quality. Local.
This is the best way to describe Stone Surface. The culmination of 30 years in the granite business, we have the experience to handle any project in Maine and New Hampshire. From sales to fabrication to installation, you can count on us to provide superior service and a “do whatever it takes” attitude.
Our low overhead gives us the ability to offer competitive pricing while maintaining a level of service and customer focus that the box stores simply cannot do. When you come to us for your project, you meet with the people that will actually be installing the product and servicing it after the sale.
We are able to offer an extensive display of inventory to choose from, by stocking over 300 granite slabs our customers are able to pick from all of the latest styles and trends.
Our in-house certified kitchen designers can easily walk you through the design of your new kitchen or bath. By combining the cabinetry, countertops, and flooring together, it is one-stop shopping…and a lot of saving.
Call or email us today, and give us the chance to show you what our commitment to quality is all about. We may not be a big city or big box company, but we think that is what sets us apart from all the rest.
WHO WE ARE
All of Stone Surface employees live in Maine, this means each time we do a job – it’s our reputation on the line. We have to get it right and we know you have choices. Give us a chance to show you why we work so hard to make your dream kitchen or bath come to life.

From the beginning days working out of his garage, to a showroom/fabrication shop in Naples, he has come a long way. Greg’s commitment to his family, his employees, and his customers are what sets him apart from your average small business owner. On any given day you can find him at an installation, meeting with partners, working in the shop, out on the road, or at his desk late into the evening.
