Changing from winter to spring changes a lot of things and inspires everyone to spruce things up. Kodiak Mountain Stone is proud to announce some new profiles for Spring 2013. These profiles are slightly different than some of our current profiles but broaden and strengthen our overall product
Here are a few of our new profiles:
Glacier Dry Stack Ledge
Glacier has always been a popular color in our ready stack and with our new 3″ high profile it will continue to draw the eye with edge and color.
Colorado Rundle Stacked Stone
Similar to our current Frontier Ledge; we cross over the exclusive color of Colorado Rundle to give you a nice tight dry stack look
Glacier Stacked Stone
Perfect for interior or exterior use; this glacier color will provide accent and and texture to any project!
Walnut Stacked Stone
With warm tones of brown this Stack is going to be all the rage on any project. The rich color and sleek stack will enhance your home or business
Walnut Dry Stack Ledge
Long and narrow chiseled look gives a stacked ledge a rustic feeling and appearance that is perfect for the front of your home or a fireplace.
Black Diamond Cobble Ledge
With a old European feel; Cobble ledge blends architecture with style to highlight solid structural appearance. Dark coloring with contrast makes this stone stand out and makes it look authentic and aged.
RedStone Cobble Ledge
Gives you the antique look with the vibrant modern colors.
Stone was the building blocks of modern civilizations and shale ledge with its chiseled narrow look gives a warm historic feeling of centuries long gone.

I have been considering for quite some time to refinish my fireplace. I have tile on there now and would like to go with Mountain Valley Blend Natural Stone from Kodiak Mountain Stone . I am concerned that natural stone is too heavy and I have to reinforce my main floor; is this true?
Although Natural Stone is heavier than tiles or manufactured stone it is a great alternative. Many people think that Natural Sone is much heavier than the alternatives; but now with thin cut Veneer stone from suppliers such as Kodiak Mountain Stone; weights are much less than traditionally thought. It used to be that solid full bed stone was the only thing you could install to give you a natural look; but with advances in stone technology; Natural Stone has been cut thinner and thinner and can be installed in the same manor as manufactured stone with it being actual Stone.
Each case is different depending on how much stone is being applied and the over all size and weight of the project. There is also the preparation to consider for weight including the weight of a scratch coat and mortar and any other accessories added. Surface preparation is always key including waterproofing(on exterior applications) as well as making sure the project can hold additional weights(floors walls etc).
Structural integrity should always be considered in any stone project and especially on older houses. A rule of thumb with natural stone is about 2.5 times the weight of manufactured products(which is about 10 lbs/ sq ft). We at Kodiak Mountain Stone have a broad range of natural thin veneer stone for your interior or exterior products. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.
