In business since March 2011, Great Lakes Granite Works (GLGW) is a privately held company offering artisan-quality fabrication of granite, marble, soapstone, limestone, travertine, onyx, quartzite and engineered quartz, along with related products, consultation, estimation, and precision installation services. GLGW serves a continuum of customers and clients, from individual homeowners needing a small vanity top; to interior designers and contractors working on renovation projects; commercial builders constructing restaurants, offices and other retail establishments; and even elite custom homebuilders who call on GLGW for entire developments or large custom estates.
What Sets Us Apart
GLGW has assets that allow us to achieve more than other stone fabricators and installers in the area. One very significant asset is our people. Everyone has at least five years’ experience, and most have much more:
Sales Manager Bill Duer contributes 30 years of sales experience in this industry. He is a highly respected industry expert.
Owner, shop manager and installer Anthony Cirino has been in the industry since 2002. He gained his management experience running his own fabrication and tile installation business from 2002 to 2007, and running Cirino Designs, which provided tile and stone installation and repair for GLGW customers and others.
Owner, interior designer and sales representative Carrie Cirino brings 20 years of sales and customer service expertise to the business. She also contributes 15 years of design experience in the stone industry specifically, plus significant kitchen and bath design experience. The majority of GLGW templaters, installers, fabricators and saw operators have more than 15 years of experience; the two “newest” members each bring more than five years of experience to our talented team. GLGW also stands out in customer service. We feel it is important to take the time to inform clients about such things as:
- Installation options and choices that will improve the esthetics, practicality or quality of the finished product
- Comparisons of the benefits of various stone surfaces
- Questions they should be asking about their projects in order to get the best result.
In addition, we respond immediately for estimates, and work with you until your project is ‘just right.’ Our high quality workmanship is evident in our dedication to minimal seaming, precise installation and superior fabrication. Another major advantage is our inventory; we have 30 – 40 different stones and colors available on premises at any given time. In addition, we work with modern computerized equipment and cutting tools, and continue to update our equipment to enhance our capabilities. Finally, we have strong ongoing relationships with renowned local building firms, interior designers and general contractors.
The Bottom Line For You
Every professional at GLGW wants you to be thrilled with the beautiful new or updated spaces we are helping you achieve. Our experts will make every effort to get it right the first time, and will stand beside you until our work is just right for you.
