For home-owners, natural stone offers beauty and value, it connects us to nature and reminds us of old times. Walking along a beautiful garden path brings beauty into daily life and offers respite from a hectic day. Natural stone offers a vitality that can't be duplicated. Stone is also very practical material, that lasts a lifetime and needs almost no maintenance. It adds significant value to your house and as a design material has long-lasting beauty and appeal. Stone can be used with any architectural or landscaping style.


How to choose a right stone


Stones are not all the same - there are a lot of different types of stone with their own unique qualities. When you hire Vancouver Masonry for your project, you get years of knowledge in working with various types of stone. As your mason, we will complete a project with the best stones for the desired features because materials that we select for you must meet our high standards of quality. We work with fieldstone, granite, brick, blue-stone, limestone, cobblestone, and other types of stone.

Here are a few simple tips how to get you started with a stone selection:


When choosing stone for your project, consider not only colour but sizes and shapes as well. Sizes and shapes tend to influence the finished appearance as much as colour does.


Examine what properties a selected stone has: is it sleek? colourful? textured? For an integral design, pay attention to style and colour of all surrounding elements and pick stone that's complementary to them.


Focus on a colour that unifies your space but consider using light and dark elements to add visual interest. Let unity play the lead while keeping contrast in the supporting role.


Think about mixing different types of stone for a custom result that makes a beautiful statement. Whether it's installed inside a house or outside in the garden, you can draw on natural characteristics of stone to bring your project to life.


It's always a good idea to take a look at the example that has been already installed. You'll have a better idea of what to expect when your project is finished. Good masonry contractor usually have samples or a portfolio from previous projects.


Keep in mind that it's more expensive to use building stone rather than veneer, regardless of the type of application. However, building stone offers the most distinctive look for custom installations. 


Choosing the right stone for the job is easy with some planning and it makes all the difference in the quality of your project. You can call Vancouver Masonry and we will share our expertise in building from natural or artificial stone.
