Freshwater Stone has been in the stone construction business for over 40 years. We’ve become a valuable resource for clients and other industry professionals who are interested in understanding best practices when it comes to installing stone. With over 34,000 square feet of shop space to work with and 13 overhead cranes at our disposal, consequently we are able to prefabricate most of our stonework in-house – everything from complete veneer walls to stairways, fireplaces and chimneys.

The advantages of this method translate into the ability to work year-round in a climate controlled space, in addition to utilizing our full inventory of stone, with all of our machinery and equipment resources within arm’s reach.

While we work with metropolitan area distributors with access to stone from all over the world, we are most proud of our own stone from the three local quarries we operate in Maine:

Freshwater Pearl® Granite from Mosquito Mountain in Frankfort

Our signature beautiful grey granite is exceptionally durable and possesses a visual life, with swirl and variation in the composition of its crystal formation. Click here to learn more.

Hall Quarry® Granite from Hall Quarry on Mount Desert Island

Our historic pink and tan granite can be spotted in many estates along the coast and is most associated with Mount Desert Island where it’s found on the carriage trails of Acadia National Park and as a border along its roads. We often use Hall Quarry® Granite for historic restoration projects that include famous local bridges and private residences because it matches the stone from 100 years ago.
