Our Story

StoneWorks' team has more than 266 years combined experience.


We've been serving homeowners, builders, and designers in Hilton Head, Charleston, Savannah, and the Lowcountry for 30 years – which is quite an accomplishment. “It’s because we strive to provide a level of customer service that matches the timeless durability of the stone and tiles that we install,” says John Baltzegar, founder and president.

John began offering stone products in the Hilton Head area in 1987. He started the venture by making sales calls all day, then returning to the shop at night where he worked fabricating the products. John and his sons organized crews, trained employees, and focused on providing excellent service to their customers. John’s wife and daughter managed business and design responsibilities. Today, the company serves an area from Georgia’s Golden Isles to Charleston, South Carolina. Our reputation and quality are unmatched. 

Accredited by the Natural Stone Institute


StoneWorks was among the first of just 78 accredited stone manufacturers in the entire United States to pass a stringent 3-year testing and inspection process by the Natural Stone Institute – a testament to the quality of products and service. Among the company’s multiple awards, it was voted “Best” by readers of the several local publications for multiple years.  


With a manufacturing facility among the best in the entire industry, and a vast stock of materials on hand, StoneWorks is one of the few stone companies on the east coast who can promise and deliver “Inspiration to Installation in 5 Business Days.”
