Georgia and Pennsylvania stone

How about other types of stone?

We will give you an installed price for any type of natural (real) stone you see for sale on the web. The stone yards in Atlanta mainly stock Tennessee stone because it's closer and therefore less transportation cost. Consumers do not tend to trust stone purchases from other sources than stone yards. Therefore, over 80% of real stone we see in Atlanta is Tennessee sand stone of various colors, shapes, and texture. Georgia Cherokee is not sand stone, it is slate with sharp edges. Although it is hard to install, it makes a hard surface patio and has a historic Georgia flavor. Pikes used to stock Colorado quartz, which we like. What looks like stone from other states is usually just colored concrete (i.e. fake �stone�), which we will not install.

What are the differences between Tennessee fieldstone, quarry stone, and flagstone?

        Fieldstone is stone that was laying around on the surface of the ground. It is naturally dark on the surface and sometimes covered with moss. Big pieces are called boulders. If it is (at the most) less than 2.5 inches thick and over a few inches in diameter it is called "thin fieldstone". If it is broken open so that it's colors show, it is called "broken" or "chopped" fieldstone. It is usually chopped into 4 inch thick pieces. After it arrives on the work site, stone masons may work it into rectangular pieces. It is then called "chipped" fieldstone. The colors in one batch of Tennessee fieldstone are usually the same as another. This makes it easy to add onto a wall at a later date.
        Quarry (quarried) stone is stone that has been excavated by cutting or blasting at a quarry. If it splits into thin flat pieces it is called flagstone (or flaggin or flat stone). Else it is sawed or broken into slabs of various widths. If the slabs are then broken into 4 or 8 inch thick strips it is called rubble. Some of this is further broken into smaller pieces before it goes to the local stone yards. If the slabs are sawed or broken into rectangular pieces it is called Ashlar cut. Chipping (if desired) is done by stone masons at the job site. The shades of "brown" within one shipment of "brown" quarry stone are rarely the same as in another shipment. The same is true for "pink" or "gray". This makes it difficult to match stones at a later date. Some people like a mixture of brownish, pinkish, and grayish colors. Some real estate agents call this mixture "crab orchard". Crab Orchard is really just a city in Tennessee that sells a lot of stone.

How about stack stone and wall stone?

There is not any type of stone called "stack stone" or "wall stone". All stone on a wall is stacked and one can use any type of stone he wants on a wall. The person who uses these phrases might mean a dry stack wall (where the mortar does not show), or just "not flagstone". The thickness of the stone and the amount of chipping and squaring a stone mason must do to produce the wall you want greatly affect the price. Take some pictures (or find some on the web) that you like. Then e-mail them to us and we will give you a square foot price.
