About Stone Solutions Maine

Hi, I’m Rob Howard and if you’re reading this, there’s a chance you’re considering Stone Solutions Maine for a home improvement project. I’ve been lucky enough to work with hundreds of clients over my 30 years in the business and I’m proud of the reputation and relationships I’ve built along the way. 

From the first meeting on, I take pride in caring for your property, family, pets, and budget as if they were my own. And please don’t just take my word for it: If you know any of my past customers, I encourage you to ask them about my work and I also suggest that you read my reviews on Google. We’re all about transparency at Stone Solutions, so here are a couple of other things I think you should know about me and the team.

I’m Old School When It Comes to Customer Service

I started Stone Solutions Maine because I was so unhappy with how the last company I worked for went about its business. There was so little regard for the quality of products and how people were treated. I’m the kind of guy who can’t sleep at night if a job isn’t done right, and I decided I could never again work for a company that didn’t feel the same. 

People often tell me how they tried contacting other businesses first and couldn’t even get a callback. It’s a common complaint in the field, but not one you’ll have to worry about with me. If I’m already booked up and can’t take your job, I will always let you know — and I’ll happily share referrals for other good companies if you’re interested. And if you ever need to call back because of a problem with a finished project (which I promise is rare!), we’ll answer the call and be back as soon as we can.

I’m Versatile and Creative 

On any given week I may work on a patio, indoor veneer walls, a staircase project, or a walkway. Browse the pages of my services section to get a sense of my range. I’ve been asked which types of jobs I like to work on best. It’s a tough call, but I do love the creative challenge that sometimes comes with an outdoor fireplace project. There’s an artistry involved in the design and construction of not just the fireplace, but the surrounding features that help build the ambiance of the gathering area.

You Won’t Find Anyone Who Produces Such Quality Work At My Price  

You can find less expensive masonry companies in the area, and if that’s your top priority, I get it. I would only caution that sometimes the “cheapest” option winds up costing you more in the end.

Unfortunately, we get a fair number of calls from customers asking us to fix others’ subpar work. It’s not always simple Sometimes there’s no other choice but to rip out all of the stone and start over. 

I often tell people, 90 percent of the work in masonry is in the prep — the below-ground work you never see or think about. Anybody can do window dressing work on top of the ground and walk away from the job with it looking great

I Bring My Personal Passions to Work

I spend my all-too-few hours of spare time enjoying nature yoga, tapping, meditating, eating healthy, and pursuing holistic wellness. I had a conversation with my wife recently about how I can incorporate these sources of positivity in my work, and she made a great observation: I’ve been doing it more than I realized through my interactions with customers. I also care deeply about the environment and choose to use natural materials and green building practices whenever possible. I contribute my time and funding to charitable organizations dedicated to issues I care about, including organic food movement and animal welfare.

I’m a Lifelong Mainer

I was born in Portland and grew up in South Portland, where I attended high school with my wife. To this day, most of my work is in the coastal/southern Maine towns I’ve enjoyed since my childhood – great places like Kennebunk, Scarborough, Falmouth, Old Orchard Beach, and Freeport. Today we’re building our dream home on a quiet 5-acre property in New Gloucester, where we can grow our own food and enjoy the small-town charm. I have a lifetime’s understanding of the challenges and rewards of building and creating in our climate and would love the opportunity to create a special, functional place for you where you will make memories with family and friends to last a lifetime

What we do

Walkways, patios, fire pits, fireplaces, indoor & outdoor brick ovens, hardscaping, veneers, rock walls, driveways, retaining walls & more!

Stone Masonry

This entails most of what we do. Each project we work with the finest stone materials, pavers, landscape blocks and locally sourced items. Our work is carefully planned and thought out so that it can withstand the elements and you can feel confident that it is built to last.


This typically refers to the non-living landscape material used to define lines, borders, give depth and dimension to an area. This may include statement pieces such as fountains, retaining walls, walkways, driveways and more. This is what helps to define our landscape architectural designs.

Custom projects

Usually no two projects are the same, however we are willing to go above and beyond to bring your vision to life. Our custom work can often be seen in our outdoor pizza ovens, fire places and creative ability to use natural stone from your current landscape to incorporate a unique feel.
We are so happy with our new fireplace and patio built by Stone Solutions of Maine. They were professional, trustworthy and have exceptional craftsmanship. The contract/quote was detailed and owner Rob was transparent with any potential additional cost. I would highly recommend their service and have full intentions for using them for future projects.
