Locally Owned and Operated
David Barra and Martin Trumbore have dedicated more than two decades to perfecting the process of transforming dimensional stone into beautiful kitchens and baths in the Hudson Valley and surrounding Tri-State Area. Our shop is based in Kerhonkson, New York and our skilled staff has years of hands-on knowledge of the craft. We guide our clients through each step of the process; from material selection to design, fabrication and installation of the finished product. We specialize in projects utilizing all types of natural stone and a variety of engineered materials. Dimensional stone applications extend far beyond kitchen and bath projects. Consider large format slab flooring, wainscoting, simple or ornate profile moldings, furniture, etc. Many stone varieties are freeze/thaw stable as well making them ideal for exterior use. Please contact Katie Weems, our Office Manager, to come see our shop and wander through our pavilion to find exactly what you’re looking for.
In addition to our highly skilled craftsmen, we employ the use of CNC machinery to cut and shape material enabling us to reduce lead-times, and price our work competitively.
The process of extracting stone blocks from natural formations and transforming them into slabs for installations half way around the world is labor and resource intensive. At Barra & Trumbore Stone Fabricators, we continue to invest in technology that helps offset this unfortunate reality. Before moving to our current location in Kerhonkson, we installed high efficiency shop lighting and a high pressure water recycling system that has reduced our water consumption by more than 95%. All the fabrication in our shop is done wet in order to reduce airborne matter and keep the diamond tooling cool. On March 1, 2011, our photovoltaic (installed by Lighthouse Solar) went live. At 51kw, this system generates electricity superfluous to our demand, and the excess is fed back into the grid effectively offsetting all the miles we drive… and then some!
Though we work with material from all over the world we are proud that many of our perennial favorites are quarried close by. These include: Danby marbles, Virginia Mist granite, Onondaga limestone, slates and bluestones, and many other varieties. If “local” matters to you, please ask us about what we have available!
