A Stone Monument Sign for your Business is a bold statement that you believe that your business really does have the integrity that having a Stone Monument Sign infers. What really makes it nice is the installation. Every rock sign comes completely ready to set in place and that is all that is involved, except some landscaping around it. We drill holes through the bottom of the rock, which houses rebar that sticks out front and back. We halo the rock with rebar that is attached to those ends and then pour concrete around the rock, making a very strong, reinforced concrete base that allows the rock sign to be self standing. At Natural Rock Designs we also use techniques in our artistry that are unique to the industry. Also see our Flickr page.

Our stone signs are usually sandstone. Some, however, are hard, durable limestone and even granite. Contrary to what many believe, not all sandstones are the same. Often people believe that sandstone is soft and does not hold up well over time. Actually, although you can find sandstone that crumbles in your hands, there are many varieties that range from that soft to sandstone that is nearly as hard as granite. It all depends on what type of cementing material was involved in its formation and how much heat and pressure it was exposed to as it was forming under the surface. Probably 80% of our signs come from a quarry of quartzitic sandstone. The cementing material of this type of sandstone is silica and the grains are mostly quartz, which is the hardest part of granite. It has not been heated and pressed enough to become metamorphic, but closer than most. Many of the stone signs being made out in the market place are of limestone. This quartzitic sandstone is much more durable, making it one of the most durable materials for signs in the market place today.
For customers who live more than 100 miles from us, signs will come on a truck. For rocks that weigh over 800 lbs. you will likely need a fork lift or crane to offload and set it. Straps can be used to lower it into place or just use the forks. If you need further assistance on how to handle this, you can call our office and someone with experience can advise you. That number is 208-847-1774.
