WE STARTED OUT SMALL
I had grown up on a family farm in Cedar Falls, Iowa and many times during my life had considered running my own business. In 2001, I had an opportunity to strike off in a new direction for my career. I finally felt that it was the right time. So, I started StoneTop, Inc. to template and install a new quartz product, Silestone, by Cosentino. I worked with a large fabrication shop to provide these services to a big box store and a variety of other customers.
WE KEPT OUR NOSE TO THE GRINDSTONE
I was that “two men and a truck” company for several years. Nothing in life worth doing is easy. But we kept growing. As we grew and I added crews, we moved the business from my home into a small rental unit. We also started doing some of our own fabrication and then branching out into granite and marble. The business grew and we moved into a 6,000 sq. ft. facility at 8100 East Broadway Avenue. We were now a full-fledged fabrication shop that worked with all major countertop products. When I started this company, I thought “How complicated can it be; a few rectangles?” Wow, how naïve! The tremendous range of color, choices, designs and products has created a fascinating opportunity to learn and grow. We have built a staff of dedicated craftsmen that passionately care about the quality of their work and the success of StoneTop, Inc.
Along the way, we have become ever more involved in commercial work, which brings a new aspect to what we fabricate. The commercial jobs often involve an unparalleled level of detail and creativity that we find challenging and invigorating. Working with our customers has brought a personal dimension to my life that I never anticipated. Helping someone through a major remodel process and helping them make the decisions necessary for their countertop selection so they can have the beautiful kitchen of their dreams is an experience in which I find great joy and satisfaction. I greatly enjoy being in this industry and am honored by the people that give us an opportunity to be of service.
MEET THE TEAM
Our Quality is set in Stone.
John founded StoneTop, Inc in November 2001 and fell in love with being a craftsman. He was that “two guys and truck” ccontractor for the first years as he did all his templating and installation. During the years since, he built StoneTop, Inc into a vibrant custom stone fabrication shop.
Tim came to StoneTop in the early years and has worked intensely to become what we believe is one of the top stone craftsmen in the bay area. A master of all our trades: templating, fabricating and installing, he strives for excellence in all he does. With an acute eye for color and form, Tim is a stellar performer.
As our senior saw operator, Brian has a unique ability to visualize the shapes and patterns in the stone. His ability to weave color and flow from different slabs has truly generated countertops that are a work of art. His talent for working with customers to achieve the beauty they seek is amazing.
Fabian is our shop manager, putting all the pieces together for your project. His ready smile, calm demeanor and always, always focused intensity guides our shop in completing your job to the highest standards.
Install Crew Chief
Little did we know what a gem we had found when Anthony joined our team. He is a quick learner and one of the most enjoyable people to work with on every job. A ferocious skateboarder, he is always cheerful and a proud craftsman on every installation.
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
"It went great! The two employees that came out to install were very detailed-oriented and installed everything as it if was their kitchen. The under-mount sink went in well and I love the new look.”
