Signature Stone was officially founded on May 19th, 2009. It originated as Granite Works, Norfolk branch, in Nov. 2007. We teamed up with an existing granite shop due to the fact that you can't learn the trade in a week long class. We spent 4 months working with the Omaha branch prior to and during Norfolk's setup. Upon completion of the building in Norfolk, a stone fabricator from Omaha spent 6 months in Norfolk working side by side with us in the shop, as well as on install.
The benefits of this were endless as he has been in the stone business since the early 90's and was fabricating when polishing was done with sandpaper and no pneumatic tools. Installs were done with the shop foreman from Omaha whenever possible, who was and still is a great asset in all phases of the fabrication-to-install process. Today, Signature Stone is owned and operated by Craig and Bobbi Risor, long time residents of Northeast Nebraska.

This is not Jason's first rodeo. Somewhere east of the Missouri River (Iowa) Jason worked at Weber Stone polishing his skills as a "Saw Man". Today, he carries over his skill and knowledge to "The Good Life" as a valued member of our crew. Along with the saw, Jason is also one of our best templaters insuring accuracy with each measurement.

Born and raised as a working man, Geordan has a knack for working with his hands, stemming from his toddler years as he accompanied his father working on each house they "flipped".
