A note about stone work:
It is important to keep in mind that stone is a product of nature and its colors and sizes will vary. All natural
stones vary in color, texture, and character. The end results of your project will depend on your masonry
crew. If every piece has one side of color, but is turned to the inside of the wall, a very different look will
be achieved than if the color is managed correctly. A sample panel of the look you desire and a good flow
of communication with your mason about the look you wish to achieve are very important.
