Exquisite Natural Stone

Enhance Your Home with Timeless Granite and Marble from Local Provider

Tony Kilic's story is one of resilience and perseverance. Before entering the stone industry, Tony attempted careers in furniture sales, real estate, and home renovations with limited success. He turned his setbacks into stepping stones toward success, and with each failure, he gained valuable insights and used them to unlock new opportunities. In March of 2007, Classic Granite and Marble was born from the fragments of his past struggles. Today, its headquarters stands proud and magnificent in Powhatan, a testament to his unwavering spirit and determination.

Classic Granite and Marble is run by Tony and his wife, Rahsan. They take pride in providing exceptional craftsmanship, innovative design solutions, a customer-centric approach, and a wide range of high-quality stone options. Their team comprises skilled artisans and technicians who prioritize delivering stone fabrication and installation services that meet the highest standards of quality and precision. From the initial consultation to the final installation, every detail matters to the Classic Granite team, and they pay meticulous attention to ensure that every cut, edge, and placement is executed flawlessly.

Classic Granite not only provides excellent work ethics and quality expertise but also showcases one of the most outstanding showrooms to display their stonework. The showroom features a grand staircase that leads to team members’ offices, elegant living rooms, and charmingly designed kitchens with stunning countertops. Impressively, the showroom boasts a beautifully crafted bar, perfect for serving drinks during events hosted by Classic Granite. The ambiance of the showroom is glamorous and welcoming, providing a sense of comfort and ease. Visitors can surely expect to see exquisite and intricately designed living spaces on display.

In addition to providing gorgeous stonework to customers, one of their core values is to give back to the community. They support the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation by participating in their annual 5K Donut Run and sponsoring their Above & Beyond Gala. They even hosted a party at their headquarters leading up to the gala. This year, they plan to collect 800 pounds of food to support FeedMore through their annual food drive, and they love to support several other local organizations, including Habitat for Humanity in Powhatan, Susan G. Komen, Virginia Blood Services, ChildSavers, Youth Life Foundation of Richmond, and the Richmond Animal League.

Classic Granite has a team of 120 professionals, including sales representatives and fabrication and installation experts, who provide exceptional service. They are the driving force behind the company's success and growth.
