About Us

We want our customers to receive the highest quality fabrication and installation. Attention to detail, craftsmanship and unsurpassed customer service is what Alpine Granite Accents puts into every project.

Husband and wife team Flora and Kasey Buoy opened Alpine Granite Accents in 2000. They quickly outgrew two Bitterroot Valley locations before completion of a 7,500 square foot facility in 2005; designed to incorporate efficiency, state of the art equipment, and a beautiful showroom.

This permanent location boasts state of the art cutting, shaping and finishing equipment. A gantry stone saw cuts the slabs into manageable pieces using diamond blades to cut the stone cleanly. An in-line polisher is capable of creating multiple edge details; hand finishing by trained craftsmen is also available. A Computer Numerical Control or CNC machine installed in 2007  allows Alpine Granite Accents to make precision cuts with an accuracy of .004 of an inch. Owner Kasey Buoy has had intensive training in the use of the CNC. An adjoining showroom allows clients to see full sized examples of kitchen, bath and furniture ideas.

Our Process

Each project, no matter how large or small, receives the same careful attention to detail and unsurpassed customer service from owners Kasey and Flora Buoy as well as their highly skilled crew. Every step of the custom fabrication process is checked and rechecked for accuracy and quality craftsmanship. We can offer assistance in the design process and encourage customers to bring in samples of flooring, paint, cabinetry, etc.

Don’t wait until the last minute to make this important decision. Alpine Granite Accents suggests that you shop for your slab three months in advance, to be sure you have time to explore all your options, find exactly what you’re looking for, allow sufficient time for delivery of the slab, custom templating, cutting, shaping, finishing and final installation.

Alpine Granite Accents insists on Grade A stone only, Slabs average 50 to 65 square feet of usable material and can weigh up to 1,000 pounds. Clients are charged for the finished work only, not waste material, so it is important for Alpine to estimate and order the proper amount. A 50% deposit puts your job on the schedule and allows Alpine Granite Accents to order your material.

Once your cabinetry is installed, Alpine Granite Accents makes a full size plastic template or a digital template using a laser templating machine to ensure a perfect fit. Your project is created from this exact template; allow approximately two to three weeks time from template to installation. For remodels, laser templating allows customers to keep their counters in until the new ones are installed – installation typically takes only one day.

A minimum of two trained craftsman properly install and add the final sealant (if necessary) to your stone surfaces.

Alpine Granite Accents is a member of the Bitterroot Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Missoula Building Association, the Bitterroot Building Industry Association, the National Association of Homebuilders, the Marble Institute of America, and the National Federation of Independent Businesses. They are proud to have been named Montana Small Business Administration Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2006.
