I wanted to give a shout-out to Carved Stone Creations and Liz Wittman, Project Co-ordinator, for customer service above and beyond. Above and Beyond - because even though I'm not a customer of Carved Stone Creations (and not likely to be since I live in Canada, and they're based in Wisconsin (almost in Canada :-), Liz responded to my emailed question on a problem I was having with my granite fountain (PS. the only company that responded by the way). Liz took the time to ask how the problem occurred, and even for a picture of the fountain that she then took to her boss to see if he had any suggestions for me. She then sent me a detailed email with the steps I should follow to try and fix the problem. If Liz and Carved Stone Creations did so much just to answer my question, I can only imagine what a great job they'd do if the fountain was actually theirs.

As a local monument dealer in a college town in Western New York, I was approached by the president of the State University of NY at Fredonia Class of 2015 for a campus project that they were working on. Each year, the graduating class holds fundraisers to collect for a lasting project that benefits the entire campus. This year, the senior class had chosen a decorative granite fountain with surround. Unfortunately, by time they came to us, time was short as there was less than 3 months for the project to be completed. It was at this point that I turned to Carved Stone Creations to help. I began working with Liz W., who was very helpful throughout the entire process. After discussing what the members of the class where envisioning as well as their budget constraints, Liz had the solution. Carved Stone Creations actually had exactly what they were looking for in stock, and within the proposed budget! We placed the order, and everything arrived in time to complete the installation for graduation!! When the kit arrived, everything needed was with the shipment, and the assembly was relatively easy. Liz even provided a guide to winterizing the fountain. A photo and description of the finished project was even printed in the commencement program. Carved Stone Creations, and especially Liz W. were extremely easy and pleasant to work with. I would not hesitate to do business with them again in the future, and would highly recommend this company to anyone.
We had an older baptismal bowl restored when we brought if from one of our former churches into our new "Worship Space" at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Parish in Newton, Wisconsin. We were thrilled to see the beautiful color of the stone after it was restored. It fits perfectly into our new space. You can see the bowl by going to our website, stthomasnewton.org., click on "About Us" and check out the photos. We are so grateful to Carved Stone Creations.
We had them make a fountain with 60 inch bowl with a 48 inch riser all granite and it looks great. They made 10 foot dia circle around the fountain in granite

I had a wonderful experience with Liz. She is exceptional . Very helpful when I needed information on the sink that I wanted she was very informative with every little details, and was generous with all the pictures to make me comfortable from across the miles to see it as close as I can Thank you Liz and God bless
Carved Stone Creations is a great company to work with. Being a designer, I have multiple projects running and need people like Liz Wittman to make sure that my ideas are implemented to the fullest. Liz helped me every step of the way - from ordering a beautiful sink, to the detailed description of the installation. Thank you for all your help, guys!
I had a wonderful experience purchasing a vessel sink from Carved Stone Creations. The service was first rate! When one attempts to purchase an important item like a vessel sink over the internet, it is important to feel confident that the product you are purchasing will meet all your expectations and be the exact one that you want. Elizabeth, my project coordinator at Carved Stone, was simply fantastic in helping me firstly pick the type of stone that would be best for my setting as well as ensuring that the vessel sink that I ordered would be perfect. I will definitely work with this company again. All the best, Richard
I had 2 granite planters installed in front of my house. Very satisfied with them. They look great. Was a little nervous ordering them because we had purchased a fountain 3 years before & I wanted the color of the planters to match it because they are close in proximity. Can't wait to see them filled with flowers! Great company to work with. Highly recommend!!

Carved Stone Creations is a wonderful company to work with. I have worked with them on several occasions and I cannot say enough good things about Robb, Wes, and Ilene Ripley and the professionalism and talent they bring. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Carved Stone Creation is a great company to work with. They are very helpful and creative on the front end pinning everything down. Their drawings are great! We have worked with them on several projects and the quality of the stone and carving is excellent. I would recommend them.
Liz was extremely helpful. I needed 2 boulder sinks that coordinated and she took countless photos of possible combinations until we found the perfect pair. The sinks are completely unique and we love them.

We found them to be extremely professional, hard working, endlessly creative, timely, fair in pricing, and super pleasant to work with! The installation crew, with Rob, executed mind boggling vast installations of everything and were always so accommodating and gracious! I highly recommend them to anyone wanting the very best in carved stone and service. Their magnificent work is the constant comment in our new Mediterranean home, it's often compared on a small scale to the Hearst Castle.
Carved Stone Creations certainly went out of their way to accommodate our needs on our island home in the Bahamas. The coordination of the container from Turkey, stone slabs from Brazil, and your workmanship to install our beautiful counter tops; while instructing the locals on how to install the 7500 sq ft Versailles pattern floor was outstanding. We get many compliments on the finish of out counter-tops, back-splash and the sink.
Thank you Rob and Eileen!!!

We have worked with Rob on a couple of different occasions with our home and my office. They do a wonderful job with providing samples and suggestions. We absolutely love the finished product!
We purchased a home in the Lake Sandia subdivision just outside Krakow, WI. The subdivision has beautiful stone fountains in each of the cul-de-sacs that were designed and built by Carved Stone Creations, Inc. The quality of the stone fountains shows that these folks really know their business. As for our home, the stone work both inside and outside are exquisite. Stone floors throughout, along with stone windowsills are a rare find. There is a stone archway as you enter the living room and stone baseboard to match the floors. The home also has a stone fireplace and the sinks are all stone. The craftsmanship and attention to detail are unsurpassed. Rob and Wes are very knowledgeable and professional, and I consider them to be the best in the business. Let's not forget about Eileen who with her design expertise has made this house our home. Anyone looking to buy or build a home with exceptional quality stone work should look no further than to Carved Stone Creations! We love these guys and would highly recommend them for any interior or exterior stone work!

Kris and I felt that we should write you a note to thank you and your team at Carved Stone Creations for the marvelous job you folks did on turning our house into our castle. Before we found you, we didn't think it would be possible to create the dream we had about what we wanted our home to look like.
Your expertise in what types of stone were available and in how to get that stone carved and installed was awesome. The more we worked with you and Wes, the more things we found that we could actually do. The drawings that you would make up gave us plenty of ideas and the way that the stone was actually carved was amazing.
We would never have thought that we could get our stone mantel of our fireplace carved with extremely realistic representations of a Medieval Joust and even Kris herself on her horse! The time it took to get the stone and get it carved was always shorter than one would have thought, so the production schedule was always on time.
Also, no matter how intricate and complicated the stone pieces might be, the installation always fit and always was done very first class.
We would highly recommend Carved Stone Creations to anyone who is looking to make their home more distinctive and wants to create a lasting masterpiece.

The vessel arrived yesterday and I opened the box today. It arrived in perfect shape and is beautiful!
I want to thank you and everyone at Creative Stone for your continual care and attention. This was a difficult thing to accomplish but you did it! I’m very happy, and will send photos once it is installed — after I’m traveling for this next week, best,
"On behalf of the entire parish and personally, I wish to thank you for all the services you and your company brought to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton over the past months.
