Colonial Brick & Stone’s owner and founder, Elroy Wagler, has had 35 + years of  experience in the natural stone industry. Aside from owning a 1200 acre quarry property on Manitoulin Island and overseeing the operations at the processing facility, Mr. Wagler has many years of hands on experience in installing many kinds of natural stone.

Mr. Wagler’s wealth of knowledge is being transferred into the minds and hearts of his family and employees where because of laying huge tonnages of natural stone with his own hands and equipment himself Mr. Wagler has the advantage of being able to develop methods of production that bring each kind of stone to the most interesting and best beauty possible. Colonial takes pride in the special touch that the unique professional hand work their talented employees are putting into their thin veneer which makes it beautiful. Our flexibility in finishes and blends also gives you tremendous capability.

The most recent theme our company and distributors have come up with is: “build and landscape to match” where you can

(a) do the landscape and water feature in the back yard and later match the house with the possibility of matching thin veneer or

(b) look out the window and see a landscape matching your new thin veneer fireplace – one inside, one outside, but blending through the view of the window.

(Here is a letter from a satisfied and grateful customer)

Dear Elroy,

Your expansive knowledge, honesty, and having the gift to be able to give an

unbiased opinion helped us immensely. In that regard, we placed total trust in

you. Thank you.

Lunch at Anna-Mae’s was a welcome rest following our long journey.

It also afforded opportunity for all to get to know each other a little more.

Pie and Nanaimo bars for us to bring with us to share with our children!

You provided a day that we will not soon forget.

The tough “decision-making” was made really quite simple with regard to

stone choice and application due to honest dialoging.

We retired last evening giving even greater glory to our Maker!

Gratefully,

Raphael & Paula Ann
