Natural Stone FAQ
Who Is Table Rock?

Our customers have come to expect luxurious appeal and timeless quality while being fully sustainable and environmentally responsible. We have a passion for our product and it shows in our attention to detail.
How did it all start for Table Rock?
When our customers began requesting a natural thin veneer stone, we became determined to provide a product that fulfilled exactly what they were looking for. Unfortunately, it was difficult to find something that was unique and would set us apart. Most of the products already available looked similar and lacked the sophistication our customers were hoping to attain. However, that didn’t stop us. We were confident that we not only would find something better, but that “the best was yet to come.”
Process of Natural Selection
We began looking all over the country for the most prime combination of colors, quality, and sustainability in natural stone products that we could find. Navigated almost impassable roads up mountains, forging creeks and rivers to seek out the finest our earth has to offer. We were soon reminded of a valuable lesson that when you seek, you will find and as a result we came back with outstanding natural stone profiles.
Where does Natural Stone come from?
All of our natural stones come from North America. Depending on the type of stone, it is found within the earth, mountains, low lying areas such as plains, or former sea beds where the collection of sediment has occurred.

Take care of your Natural Stone and it will last for generations. Some Natural Stones are already over 2500 million years old when quarried from the earth.
