About Us

WorkshopStone and Hammer was formed in 1992, starting as a small hobby shop between Blackfalds and Lacombe, Alberta. We had purchased granite and quartz from suppliers to make our own countertops, and while waiting for product to arrive, we started accumulated various colors and examples of the stones. Eventually, a friend who was unable to afford countertops was invited to the barn and allowed to choose a quartz slab for free, which ultimately led to the start of our business, Stone and Hammer.

As a result, Stone and Hammer began to provide countertop services to not only immediate friends and family, but extended services to new clients in Red Deer and surrounding area. Although our operations have expanded beyond hand-finishing countertops in the barn, our overarching goal has always been to treat each client with the utmost respect and provide the highest quality service around.

Stone & Hammer Care Guide

MaintenanceNatural stone surfaces used to be popular in kitchens, but homeowners found that they required careful sealing and maintenance to avoid staining and etching. This led many to prefer engineered quartz, which is non-porous, durable, and available in a variety of colors. If you choose quartz, we have some tips to help you maintain its beauty for years to come. Contact us today to learn more about our quartz countertop options.

  • To avoid damaging your quartz countertop, avoid placing hot
    pans or skillets directly on the surface. Use a potholder instead.
  • For everyday cleaning, use a mixture of dish soap and warm water to wipe away dirt and debris. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or anything that requires gloves or poses inhalation risks.
    • If you need to clean a specific area of your quartz, use a gentle cleaner. Many kitchen sprays and multipurpose cleaners will do the job.
  • With proper care, quartz countertops require minimal maintenance compared to natural stone. Keep them clean, protect from extreme heat, and enjoy for years to come!
