Maine Granite New and Reclaimed.

Many of the projects we have completed in the last several years involve Native Maine Granite.

We acquired these 14 foot Maine granite steps when we bought a fallen in foundation.  They are not your typical foundation granite, but trued, flat, and undercut for consistent rise.  They have a lovely patina, with lichen and dark aging.

For our Granite Pillars we start by excavating, pouring a footing, building to near grade and then at 6 inches below grade we start with the stone work.  Or we dig down 20 inches and install 8 inches of crushed rock, pour a 6 inch footing and float the pillar. We fill the center with concrete and  run a conduit for a light.
