RMS Rockstar of the Month – December

This month’s Rock Star has been an integral part of the RMS team for the past 25 years. Leonel Payen started as a helper on commercial projects and has moved his way through the company on the production side over the past 25 years. He spent time as a fabricator, then an installer, and eventually moved to install manager. From there, Leonel moved into the shop as our shop foreman and spent almost ten years running the shop. After several years of overseeing quality control and the warranty department, he recently moved to templating. His attention to detail and in-depth knowledge of every aspect of the stone industry makes him a cornerstone member of the RMS team. Leonel was nominated by Jordyn Halford, who had this to say about Leonel:

Leonel is a helper throughout the company. He goes above and beyond to assist not only our customers but every fellow employee as well.

Leonel exemplifies multiple areas of our TACTIC values daily. He consistently comes to work with a great attitude, goes wherever needed, and provides stonework that is second to none. Leonel truly deserves to be called “Rock Star of the Month.”

We congratulate Leonel on his stellar work, consistent and team-oriented interactions, and for being recognized by his colleagues as one of our best.

Applying Stonework in Your Home

Show-Stopping Exteriors: Dressing Your Home

Be the house that turns all the heads on your block! When it comes to your house exterior, natural stone is a top choice. Sure, it may cost more than wood or vinyl, but it’s worth it for the long-lasting beauty it brings. Natural stone veneer panel siding provides texture and color variations similar to solid stones, but with the added benefits of lighter weight and cost efficiency. Rocky Mountain Stone offers many different types of stone, so you can find one that suits your budget. In fact–with worldwide relationships, we have access to any type of material you could need to bring your vision to life. With over 60 years of experience in the industry, we can help you say goodbye to flimsy siding and hello to stylish, weather-resistant walls that will stand the test of time.

Hearth and Home: Stonework in Your Kitchen

If you’ve ever found yourself searching for “kitchen countertops near me,” know that we’ve been at the forefront of the industry since 1986, constantly offering a wide range of hard surface options to the New Mexico market. We love helping the best of Mother Nature’s beauty shine in your home!

Stonework in the kitchen is a timeless and elegant choice that can add character and charm to any home. Kitchens are the heart of the home, after all–no one will blame you for wanting to beautify the space that’s the backdrop for making so many memories. Whether you incorporate stone countertops, backsplashes, or even flooring, there are many ways to bring the beauty of natural stone into your kitchen. Granite countertops and quartz countertops are well-beloved options, for example. However, when designing your aesthetic kitchen, we consider your kitchen habits, maintenance level, and size to make sure that we can choose stone that meets your needs.

At RMS, we specialize in crafting unique custom countertops that will make your home stand out. In addition to countertops, stone backsplashes are another popular choice for stonework in the kitchen. A stone backsplash can add texture and interest to your space while providing a durable and easy-to-clean surface.

Building an Outdoor Oasis: Stonework for Your Backyard

Stone can be functional in a whole new way when it comes to creating a beautiful outdoor oasis in your backyard. The stonework can be key in adding style and functionality to the space. Whether you want to create a cozy seating area, build a stunning fire pit, or design a tranquil water feature, incorporating natural stone into your backyard landscaping can elevate the overall look and feel.

Let’s look closer at the option of adding a stone patio or walkway. Natural stone pavers can create a beautiful and durable surface for entertaining, dining, or simply enjoying the outdoors. When the stone is cut with care and precision (two of our strongest qualities, we might add), the resulting walkway can spruce up your surroundings significantly!

Transform your home with the elegance and sophistication of stonework. Whether it’s the exterior siding, kitchen countertops, or outdoor landscaping, natural stone adds beauty, durability, and value to your property. With Rocky Mountain Stone’s expertise and variety of materials, you can create a stunning home that stands out. Let us help you turn your vision into a reality. Contact us today to get started!
