Sometimes, it's the little things that transform a room—a vase of flowers here, an inconspicuous duck blind there—but other times, something more drastic is necessary. That's where Ultimate Stone comes in. Their technicians upgrade kitchens, bathrooms, and even office spaces with surfaces of sleek natural or engineered stone. Besides elegant countertops and vanities, the craftspeople provide tiling services for floors and walls, and are available for maintenance and repairs should any of the tiles gain sentience and escape during the night.

The team also looks after carpets by wearing protective booties inside homes and protects siding from scratches by fitting its ladders with protective pads.
