Where We Get Curbing

In the Northeast, granite curb has been used for over 150 years to separate sidewalks from streets.  When roads are resurfaced, these long linear planks of granite are often replaced.

First Generation vs. Present Day Curb

Granite has been used as curbing for over 100 years. The first generation of curb was primarily made with hand tools, which is why the resulting material has a hand-hewn, almost natural look and feel. In the last 50 years, curbing has been produced in a more mechanized fashion, resulting in a more uniform look and feel.

Color

Like so many different granite products, reclaimed and salvaged curbing comes from a variety of quarries creating many color variations. In general curbing is made from gray granites that range from lighter colors to almost charcoal colors.  Years of wear combined with exposure to natural elements gives this material its earth tone color palette.  Ask us what colors are available for specific applications.
