admin Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Having spent the last 9 years in Stuart, Glass Block Warehouse has grown from a relatively small supplier and installer of glass block and glass block products,  into a well established, well respected company enjoying relationships with over 2500 builders in Florida.  Whether performing large commercial projects, new construction or remodeling, Glass Block Warehouse has truly established themselves as the “one stop shop for glass block.”

While glass block continues to be a beautiful way to enhance any project, “the time was right to research and explore new and complimentary products to add to our existing line of glass blocks,” says Ron Mayer, the companies owner, and so “Solutions in Stone,” a division of Glass Block Warehouse, was formed.

The first new products to be introduced through Solutions in Stone were the stone and brick veneer.  “Since we are a masonry company, the stone and brick veneer are a natural fit for us,” said Mr. Mayer.  Solutions in Stone carries full lines of stone and brick veneer products by most major manufacturers, and has recently been awarded an area distributorship with Centurion Stone®.

Whether interested in purchasing large or small quantities for consumption, or looking for professional installation, Solutions in Stone offers full service on all of our stone & brick veneer products, and with a combination of over 100 collective years of masonry experience between our crews, you are sure to receive product information and extensive knowledge by our staff.  Additionally, we carry all necessary licensing and insurance required for professional installation for both residential and commercial projects.

The second new product line that we literally “stumbled upon” according to Mr. Mayer, is our Shirestone© custom, poured on site, concrete composite countertops.  Voted number three of the top twenty-five new products for 2006, Shirestone© is a multi-use versatile product, perfect for new construction, remodeling and/or commercial applications.

Each countertop is handcrafted using a proprietary formula to create a durable yet lightweight, solid surface.  Most projects are poured on site providing a seamless surface while assuring a perfect fit.  Each countertop is custom stained using a variety of colors and custom techniques.  A superior high strength coating is used to seal the tops leaving a virtually maintenance free finish.  This precise and intricate process assures that each countertop is unique and complimentary to its environment and leaves behind a one of a kind showpiece.

Whether looking for a rustic Tuscan feel, or a sleek high gloss contemporary finish, these unique countertops offer a variety of style, color, texture and finish to compliment almost any design theme.

The benefits to using Shirestone© are custom color; whether matching an existing color theme or creating a new and exotic look, the ability to customize the color on each project allows for adaptability and creativity while creating a completely unique look.  The custom edging ranges from simple straight lines to rounded corners; or, more intricate designs such as triple bull nosed edged or hand chiseled finish.  Custom poured backsplashes can be formed to give a tiled look, a rough rock finish, or a simple sleek look to match the poured surface of the counter tops.  Since the product is poured and hand toweled into place, the surface texture can be modified to resemble a rough rock like finish, or a soft smooth stone finish, or somewhere in between.

The tops can be accentuated with custom back-splashes and decorative wall pieces.  Creative design elements such as slate, tile or metal can be incorporated into the surface.  Additionally, accent pieces such as medallions, decorative tiles, mementos, crests and logos can be in-laid into the surface creating a one of a kind look.

Designer Counter tops

Durable yet lightweight, these counter tops are perfect for residential and commercial applications as well as outdoor kitchens and bars.  These unique counter tops are non porous and resistant to stain; heat resistant and food safe; and can be placed over existing surfaces such as formica, making them ideal for remodel projects.
