Curbing

Their traditional purpose of edging streets and walkways is just the beginning of the design possibilities for these vintage curbing stones. They can also be laid flat for paving/patios, steps, benches, fireplaces and more. In general, sizes are 4″ to 6″ thick, 12″ to 18″ deep and 3′ to 6′ long. This is another great way to incorporate reclaimed specialty building materials into your unique and stylish environment.

Reclaimed Granite Curbing

Choose granite’s classic shades of grey to harmonize with poured concrete or contrast subtly with materials of other colors. The hardest stone on earth, granite is unfazed by the most extreme weather or traffic conditions.

Reclaimed Sandstone Curbing

Soft tones of buff give sandstone its warmth and personality. It’s also noted for strength and durability, making it a great choice for projects where failure is not an option.
