We are a full-service stone fabricator specializing in functional and custom stone design. We work closely with architects, designers & contractors bringing their projects to realization. We also stock a full line of stone fountains, placement pieces and specialty stone creations.
In addition to our stone fabrication, we are among the leaders in the manufacturing and distribution of landscape materials, including decorative pebbles, beach glass & pebble tile. Another area Coverall Stone specializes in is basalt and granite paving material and dimensionally cut stone.
In business since 2000, we have years of experience in the handling and customization of natural stone.
Based in Seattle, Washington, we were inspired by the natural basalt formations and columns prevalent in Eastern Washington. What started with one little saw has grown into a full fabrications shop that specializes in natural stone creations and products that will add a definite look to your landscaping project. Fountains, monuments, lights and furniture are just some of the items we create out of basalt and other stone material.
Over the years we've added a full line of decorative pebbles, pebble tile and granite creations to round out our natural stone collection, giving you a company you can rely on to truly "cover all " of your stone needs.
