New Bluestone Stoop on a Forty-Five

New Bluestone Stoop on a Forty-Five

The picture above is a new bluestone stoop for a classical limestone home in La Grange, IL. The clients selected a thermal blue bluestone, being, “bluestone that is cut like a loaf of bread, with each piece being the same thickness. It is essentially a gauged material. The sawing process requires a second step of thermaling or applying a flame to the surface. This ensures that the stones have a non-slip, consistent surface. Additionally, thermal bluestone pavers have a very uniform surface and are great for outdoor pool decks because the surface provides for solid traction when the stone gets wet. Combined with its more traditional blue color, thermal bluestone works well in both modern and more traditional settings.” With the addition of rotating the dimensional bluestone pattern on a 45˚ adding an interesting diamond pattern on the path to entrance of the home.

With an average compressive strength rating of up to 4 times the strength of conventional poured concrete, Richcliff is a virtually indestructible paver that will not split, crack or fade.”

Under-Construction Stake

Under-Construction Stake

We have redesigned our residential under-construction stake. These laser-cut steel stakes will be powder-coated red and placed at the front yard of homes we are working at. Standing at approximately three feet tall, they will be a fun splash of color for a landscape bed. Because of this, our clients will be able to purchase these signs and use them as garden art.
