Columbine Granite & Stone LLC is the leading expert in residential and commercial natural and engineered stone projects throughout the Northwest Mountain Region and is a preferred local fabricator of top builders in Grand County.

They offer 25 years of combined experience, providing the highest quality standards in the industry and a product that will last a lifetime. They have gained a reputation for providing trusted professional service from the beginning stages of selection, accurate and honest estimating practices to well-planned layouts and experienced fabrication to punctual, no hassle, clean and beautiful installation.

It is through attention to detail, strong relationships, competitive pricing, industry product and fabrication knowledge, exceptional communication, customer service and consistent follow through, that they have become an industry leader.

Columbine maintains a complete showroom and extensive collection of hundreds of in-stock stone slabs and remnants from around the world. Their natural stone inventory is comprised of granite, marble, onyx, travertine, limestone, sandstone, soapstone, and quartzite.

They also offer a variety of engineered stone, often made from eco-friendly recycled materials: glass (Bio-Glass), porcelain (Neolith), concrete and glass combinations (Terrazzo, IceStone), paper (PaperStone), and todays popular man-made granite “quartz” products (Caesarstone, Silestone & Cambria), to name a few. Engineered and natural stone slabs are not only sustainable, but the processing used in Columbine’s fabrication facility is also environmentally friendly.

Following today’s hottest design trends, Columbine provides in-house equipment to apply custom finishes to your slab, such as honed, satin, leathered and caressed. Textures lend themselves to a warm, natural mountain rustic/contemporary look and are a nice textural contrast to the smooth wood and tile found in most homes. These finishes also enhance performance and ease of everyday care, and are important for outdoor areas and homes that have hard/well water, which etches polished stone.

Columbine ensures an educated, experienced and patient team to support customers in the design and selection process of their stone. Additionally, owner Stacey Bumgarner’s background and degree in interior design helps when a customer needs assistance coordinating their stone with the rest of their décor.

“Finding the perfect stone is an art of balancing cost, color, shape, thickness, contrast, amount of movement (veining) in the stone’s appearance, pattern, texture and edge style.”

Columbine’s emphasis is to get to know their customer and understand their personal style, preferences, needs and vision for their stone counter tops, walls, fireplaces, floors, stone art, waterfalls and outdoor kitchens/living spaces. Staying abreast of the current trends and most popular colors helps appeal to the masses for resale-focused clients. They offer free estimates, design consultations and references.

The key to Columbine Granite & Stone’s continued success and growth, even during the last recession is the constructive personal relationships they build, by providing each and every client a commitment to, no matter how large or small the job, a superior level of service, integrity backed by a solid warranty, meeting and often exceeding their clients expectations. Consistently providing a positive experience for customers with minimal call-backs creates lasting relationships with on-going referrals from homeowners and loyal repeat contractors.

The majority of their new business is generated through word-of-mouth by appreciative past clients who they have helped to create their dream spaces.
