A passion for fine stonework.
Founded by Brett S. Rugo, grandson of an Italian stone carver, Rugo Stone is a privately-owned company dedicated to the design, fabrication, and installation of natural stone, mosaic, and other architecturally significant stonework products. Mr. Rugo became interested in natural stone while growing up amid the granite quarries of Barre, Vermont. At age 15, Mr. Rugo’s stone career began, first in a marble shop, then in a quarry, and later, on urban construction jobsites assisting in the installation of stone work.
After college, he went to work for Moliterno Stone, at the time, greater Boston’s leading stone contractor. In 1996, Mr. Rugo founded Rugo Stone—a natural stone contracting company committed to the highest quality in craft and customer service. Together with other master stone masons, one of the industry’s most respected craftsmen, joined the firm, and together the two devoted all their knowledge and energy to creating a company dedicated to delivering extraordinary stonework, performed with integrity.
Committed to craftsmanship.
Today, Rugo Stone routinely employs over 120 employees, and works throughout the entire Mid-Atlantic region for some of the nation’s most acclaimed architects, churches, developers, construction managers, and private homeowners. Entrusted with some of the most challenging and intricate projects required of a stone contracting company, we’re uniquely capable of performing highly detailed marble and granite fabrication, complex stone shop drawings, and detailed engineered support systems, along with rigorous scaffold and rigging challenges, in an environment of progressively shorter lead times.
Our steadfast commitment to fine craftsmanship means doing things right the first time, no matter what. Our company culture demands integrity, excellence and versatility, and those values shine through in everything we do. As one of the most recognized stone contractors in the region, Rugo Stone consistently receives regional, national, and international craftsmanship awards for our work. One of the few companies still training and supporting master stoneworkers, we’re deeply committed to preserving the lasting beauty of master-crafted natural stone for future generations.
Our senior staff has over 400 years of collective stone trade experience, and most of our technical team has engineering or architectural backgrounds, supporting the highest detail of technical requirements that the stone industry demands.
