Planning Your Dream Project

No matter what your project may be, whether it’s a custom landmark, a granite architectural feature, or a work of art, it’s important to take your time during the initial preparation to ensure that once the project is finished it not only matches your vision but exceeds your expectations. At HGH Granite, we provide custom stoneworks in Ontario for a wide variety of clientele. One of our favorite moments is when a client witnesses their dream come to fruition after all of the time spent planning and hard work.

Our family has been in the granite industry over 85 years, and in that time we’ve helped provide stone and granite services to countless clients, and have seen projects of all shapes, sizes, intricacies, and designs. We’re granite and stonework specialists, and we’re here for you every step of the way, even to the installation. From the get-go, we’ll work with you and find out what your requirements are and how we can help. We like to say that granite is our medium, and your imagination is our inspiration, and this will be apparent to you immediately.

In this post, we’ll be discussing a few of the things you should keep in mind and steps you can take before the custom stonework begins. If you would like any further information about our granite company, or have an idea and would like to get a quote, contact us now!

Choosing a Supplier

We have to admit, we might be a little biased on this one, but obviously when you’re looking to create a work of custom granite, you’re going to need to choose a granite supplier. While you may have options, here are a few reasons to go with HGH Granite:

  • Experience – None of our competitors have the experience and knowledge in custom stonework than we do. Founded in 1929 and family-owned, we are now in our fifth generation of our custom stonework family. We’ve seen it all, we’ve done it all, and we’ve never lost our passion.
  • Selection – We source and import our granite from all around the world, making sure that our customers have an almost unlimited amount of choices when choosing the stone. In fact, we have four acres of raw and finished material on our property. To ensure that you get the granite you’re looking for, we also provide samples for you to see and inspect.
  • Dedication – Every employee at HGH is dedicated to our customers’ satisfaction and the quality of granite that we provide. Our goal is to go above and beyond expectations so your final project turns out better than you could have even hoped for.
  • Comprehensive Services – We do way more than just provide you granite and send you on your way. Our granite services include expert sandblasting, laser etching, granite repair, and if you’re not comfortable heading your project, we can take the reins and manage everything from the original conception all the way to installation.

Planning the Design

Clearly, this is a step that you must take, but it will be much more beneficial for you to have the input from a stone specialist. You can provide us with minor details of what you’re hoping for, and we can give you suggestions on color, design, and offer you helpful advice every step of the way.


One of the reasons that granite has become such a staple of custom stonework is the abundance of colours to choose from. Depending on what your project is, landmark, memorial, architectural feature, etc. you’ll be able to find a colour that matches what you see in your mind as you envision your project in the early stages.

Getting Inspiration

The key to the future lies in the past. When imagining the final product, it doesn’t hurt to look at similar pieces of work to find inspiration. At HGH, we’ve worked on many projects and can show you some of our previous works to help your creative processes. View our case studies and contact us if you would like more examples to look through.

Turning Your Dream Into Reality

After these beginning stages are done, and you have a clear picture in your head as to what you’re looking for, then the only thing left to do is get to work! Once again, we will be with you as much as you would like. If that means managing the entire project, or stepping away after providing you with the granite, then that is what we’ll do! Your complete satisfaction with our granite services is our guarantee, and we love helping turn your dream project into a reality!
