US Granite March 2017

A Quick note from Shawn


Although we’ve had a slow start to the year due to weather and other builder slowdowns, I’m excited to announce that we have gotten confirmation to obtain the Quartz, Corian, and Sensa Granite business through Home Depot. We have been working hard on this account since we took over the granite last February, and only one year later we have proved ourselves to the Home Depot management that we are fully capable to service all solid surface materials through the local stores. This is monumental for US Granite/Elite Stone, and is a testament to the hard work that we all put In each and every day. We are one of the select few fabricators across the country who provide service to both Home Depot and Lowes, and is really something that we should all be proud of. We have a lot of work to do to prepare for this new business, so let’s continue to concentrate on improving our quality, service, and branding of the US Granite/Elite Stone name as the dominant fabricator in the Northern Nevada market.


Job of the month!

Mike DiLoreto Home

This is Mike DiLoreto’s personal home, who is one of our best customers/builders.

  • The kitchen and bar are Bianco Antico granite with a 1 ½” mitered edge,
  • the master is Snow leopard quartz with a wrapped tub surround,
  • the secondary baths and laundry are white ice and morning frost quartz.

This job has been quite the project for USG with multiple templates and installs, but the customer is extremely pleased with his end result, as are we.

All about Safety

In March of 2017, we are seeing a 75% decrease in recordable incidents across the board. Of the incidents which are still occurring, 67% of them are happening on job sites. Of these, we have seen an increase in slips due to ice on the jobsite and strains due to loading/unloading. Things such as walking, loading and unloading make up 92% of the recordables being reported.

When working in the field, please ensure there are no boards with nails in your path, you have proper footing, ask the Superintendent of the jobsite to remove ice and snow from your paths. Also, if additional help is needed to load or unload slabs or product, notify your immediate manager of the situation.
