Our Story

Quality Stone Veneer has been a family owned and operated business since the very first stone was cast in the late 70s.

The year is 1976 in the heart of the green rolling hills of Pennsylvania’s southeastern countryside. An inspired young laborer installing lap siding on residential homes notices a developing trend in the use of a then new building material, manufactured stone siding. This stone siding that caught his eye was more broken up shards of concrete than it was a product replicating a natural stone. In a monumental moment of curiosity, he began to question, “How could we do this better?”

This simple question turned into obsession; one that evolved over the years to follow. With a passion for innovation, and an unrelenting persistence through trial and error, he began to perfect a new method to hand cast and replicate the intricacy and fine detail of natural stone as it’s found in nature.

Through collection of rocks while out on hikes, a deep library of natural stone for casting began to take shape, a practice our team can’t help but do to this day when stumbling across a unique piece to add to the collection.

With our own manufacturing and innovations perfected, QSV grew organically in the following years to becoming a full-service turnkey company, an end-to-end solution for stone veneer and precast installation on dream homes, churches, universities, hotels, apartments, retail locations and everything in-between.

Today, QSV proudly services the eastern half of the US from the New England states down through Florida, as well as has a location in Colorado. Here in 2021 we remain family owned and operated with over 500 years of combined experience in the stone veneer industry standing behind our leadership team.

Rooted within our name, the core values our company was built on from the beginning have never changed:

 

Quality. Sustainability. Value. Innovation.

Installation Expertise

QSV is a turnkey company, meaning we handle both the manufacturing and installation of our own product. From estimation through project completion, QSV ensures your project is done beautifully, correctly, and on time.

Preset-Ledgestone

First-Clip-Job

2010 – Clip System™ Inception

QSV begins to see a trend in projects specifying the requirement for drain mat, an additional underlayment product designed to create an airspace between the wall and stone. This added cost to stone installations.

What can we do to create a drainage space between our product and the wall system, without adding the additional cost of a drain mat? How can we better separate the wall and the stone product itself to protect a project's longevity?

The Quality Stone Veneer Patented Clip System™ application method is invented and undergoes its first stages of development.

2010 – Sheetz®

QSV begins its partnership with Sheetz® convenience stores using Preset Drystack, the first version of Drystack Lambris, on their stores. Preset Drystack in the color Powder Ridge is installed first on one of their West Virginia locations using traditional mortar and wire lath.

Provence-Cobblestone-Lambris

2010 – First Clip System Project

The first Clip System project is completed with our Cobble Clip style, now known as Cobblestone Lambris. A groove in the back of the stone panels did not yet exist with this version of the product. Instead, a groove was meticulously cut into the back of each piece on site to accept the Clips.

2010 – Western Expansion: Colorado

Our Littleton, Colorado location is founded, opening the doors to new opportunities and partnerships in the west.

2012 – New Clip System Developments

QSV begins to develop molds that include the Clip System groove behind the stone pieces. This eliminates the necessity to cut the groove manually on site with a masonry saw.

2013 – New Clip System Install

A Clip System installation is completed with the new Preset Drystack molds, today know as the style Drystack Lambris. Installation time is significantly cut down, no longer requiring the extra step of cutting a groove in the back of each stone panel before it is mechanically fastened to the wall.

Historic-Brick

2013 – Historic Brick

Historic Brick, the first panelized thin brick product is created featuring the same groove in the back of the pieces to accept the Clip. A handcrafted, modular brick finish could now be achieved on projects, without the necessity of the additional structural design a full depth brick requires.

Historic Brick, Preset Drystack and Siota Block are combined on the Foursquare Gospel Church. This project is one of the first to demonstrate the profile combination capabilities with QSV's Lambris product line.
