The Original Sprayed Limestone System
Americans spend $300 billion dollars on remodelling and upgrading their homes, offices, office buildings and vacation homes including interiors and exteriors annually.
StoneItDFW Stone has created a unique niche in the market place with a time and cost saving technology which cuts installation time in half with the use of a unique limestone application which is handcrafted on-site by Master Artisans.
We create beautiful real limestone with the texture and color of any shape or rock appearance desired. It can be installed on existing walls without disturbing the existing original structure.
This product was developed by a French craftsman and artist and then expanded throughout France, Spain, and Italy since 1999. Our product’s versatility creates astonishing results compared to that of quarried stone. StoneItDFW Stone offers an incomparable range of application and design to architects and interior designers which previously has been very limited.
With the explosive growth and now with an established U.S. base in Dallas, Texas, our growth plans are to build 200 StoneItDFW Stone showroom warehouse centers in the next 5-6 years.
The French experience has expanded successfully and profitability. The initial US Showroom Center is on track to do $1,400,000 in the first year. Americans spent approximately $5 million dollars per zip code in home remodeling last year, and this activity has increased 20% over the previous years. The commercial construction market is approximately $100 billion annually in the US.
We have established a company culture of excellence in customer service, attention to detail, and successful financial growth, to prepare our Franchisees to succeed.
