Serving North Idaho, Eastern Washington and Western Montana, Idaho Granite Works specializes in a wide variety of natural stone projects, handling all phases of fabrication and installation.
Over the years, the family was inspired to get into the granite fabrication business as things changed in the logging and road construction industry. “Originally incorporated in 1969 as Anderson Logging Co., Inc. by my grandfather, Lowell Anderson, we made the change to a stone fabrication shop and changed the name of the business to Idaho Granite Works Inc.,” says Julie Krezman.
“Even with the business evolving from logging and construction to stone fabrication, its strong family roots remain,” comments Lucinda McLeish. Idaho Granite Works is a family owned and operated business. Oscar Anderson and his three daughters Julie Krezman, Lucinda McLeish and Laree Liermann, son-in-laws Adam Krezman and Daniel McLeish, grandson Conner Krezman, along with the team at Idaho Granite Works, work hard to build a legacy and a successful business together.
Idaho Granite Works has been offering their expertise in stone fabrication for more than 20 years. Many of their designs use locally quarried granite and basalt, as well as limestone, granite, marble and engineered quartz from around the world.
As a custom stone fabrication shop, the company manufactures what the customer dreams up and offers a number of products including, though not limited to: landscape steps, signs, barbecue counters, fire pits, fountains, blocks, outdoor furniture, entrances, benches, hearths, mantels, countertops, sinks, tub surrounds, showers, fireplaces, monuments, headstones and plaques.
The qualified staff can help you through the steps of design, cost estimating, material selection, fabrication, installation and maintenance.
“It is rewarding when we make someone’s ideas come to life,” affirms Julie. “Being a custom shop, we get to help our customers implement their dreams into their homes or businesses.”
Oscar, Julie, Lucinda and Laree, along with the rest of the Idaho Granite Works family, are thankful to their loyal customers in Boundary and Bonner counties, as they say they are the biggest part of the company’s success. “We wouldn’t be where we are today without their support,” says Julie. “Our customers are not just customers to us. They are our family, friends and neighbors.” Combined with the quality craftsmanship and excellent customer service, Idaho Granite Works provides their clients with a product nothing short of exceptional.
In addition to their superior services offered to the local communities, they also find time to give back. Idaho Granite Works has worked with Boundary County Fuller Center for Housing (formally Habitat for Humanity) to provide countertops in two homes. They have also supported the Robotics team (they have a nice sign too!), Bonners Ferry High School, 4-H and more, in addition to supporting many individual benefit auctions with auction items each year.
Idaho Granite Works invites you to stop in and browse through their fine selections of natural stones, quartz material and unique displays, as well as the opportunity to discuss their process and your vision.
