Fireplace Surrounds

For many years, we have produced slate fireplaces and fireplace surrounds. And in recent years, our other natural stones have been used for stone fireplaces and fireplace surrounds. Architects specify our materials for their natural beauty, performance characteristics, low maintenance, and durability. And because we produce custom sizes and offer several finishes, architects also appreciate the flexibility our materials afford them in their designs.



Custom – Most fireplace surrounds are custom-fabricated from large stones.

Tiles – Fireplace surrounds can be faced with small tiles.

Sculpings – Fireplace surrounds can also be faced with
sculpings or irregular slate “bricks”.

Split-face Veneer – Fireplace surrounds can also be faced with textural cleft veneer.
