Rises to the challenge...
"I reached out to Zach with Venetian Cast Stone in the early stages of their new operation. The other guys were telling me it'd be 4-6 months on my project, Zach made it happen in less than a month! Ever since then, Zach and the crew have knocked out any and every request I need in a timely fashion. Their products are great quality and they can color match better than anyone I've worked with before! When I have a challenging project ahead- the crew at Venetian Cast Stone always comes through!"
Matt Phelps, Project Superintendent, Edward's Stone
High quality and on schedule...
“We first worked with Venetian Cast Stone on a project with a difficult schedule. We asked them to produce the stone in less than half of the time of the typical cast stone lead time. Venetian produced high quality cast stone pieces on schedule and accurately, which helped us to complete the project on time. Venetian's staff is great to work with, and we look forward to working with them on many projects throughout the future.” Sam Pickerill, Midwest Masonry
