Stirling Stonework’s Primary Mission
Benefitting United States Veterans is Two-Fold:
- We offer substantial cost savings to Veteran’s and Civic organizations that typically use granite for their monuments. Finally small cities can afford a current conflict monument.
- We provide business opportunities for Veterans to make 12-15% commissions on the sales of these monuments. Stirling also gives back 5% of its profits to Veteran’s organizations.
Utilizing Proprietary Nano Technologies, Stirling StoneWorks provides the longest lasting and most affordable cast stone veterans, civic and organizational monuments and memorials. Our timeless monuments have the polished look of granite but are extremely durable and cost about one-third of traditional options.
Every City in the USA needs a Current Conflict Monument.
Stirling StoneWorks anticipates $40M in potential gross revenue from
1% market share of current conflict civic monuments.
Stirling StoneWorks is the perfect solution for diverse industries cast stone needs including: High Performance Security Barriers for Embassy, Olympic and other Public Events with national and global sales channels in a myriad of industrial applications for strategic partnership alliances.
Our materials can be used for a wide variety of purposes:
Veterans Memorials and Civic Monuments to Headstones, Signage, Columbarium and Commercial Construction Projects as well as Historic Restoration and Replication

The Battalion Commander told us after the dedication ceremony, that his intention to purchase other flagpole bases and current conflict monuments was dual purpose. He knew the stone would outlast his term of service and lifetime, but the ceremony, whose elements are assisted by Stirling StoneWorks’ Dedication teams was what meant so much: The Gathering of Military to Honor their Work.
Military Units who have served in current conflicts and are “on the list” to continue to serve must know that America Appreciates their Sacrifices, and the sacrifices of their families. Also the gathering of veterans, past and current, is vital to the essence of the military, and this was very important to him.
Cities and diverse organizations use these flagpole surround monuments to Build A Community: Veterans Home Director, Dan Jordan stated “Memorials are both Vital and Necessary because they reveal us: describing a historic time and the people who stood for our principles, our beliefs.”
What better way than a Stirling StoneWorks Flagpole Monument? Fast, Easy, and very reasonably priced!!
Our sincere thanks to Stirling StoneWorks Monument and Dedication Teams!
“The Soldiers and Veterans of National Guard can stand proud everytime they walk by this monument. Just as our soldiers have stood for freedom over the years, so will this monument stand to honor those soldiers.”

Our custom cast stone pieces are made right here in the U.S. and are the most durable and affordable option in monuments and memorials. There are over 50 Million naked flagpoles such as this one in front of a TV station which have a story to tell, or an advertising opportunity.
The video below is a training video which provides our clients with details so that the installation can be expertly completed by Landscapers, and other Construction type personnel.
Stirling StoneWorks utilizes proprietary Nano Technology to create military grade cast stone that looks like polished granite but is made to last hundreds of years even in the harshest of weather. Our stone has completed 300 freeze thaw cycles at -50 F testing and 14,000 PSI (pounds per square inch) strengths. Example: Highway materials range from 3,500 to 4,000 PSI, High Performance Cements range from 5,000 to 6,000 PSI, marble or granite strengths range from 5,000 to 8,000 PSI.
OUR Strengths are double or more of available alternatives!
Not only is our cast stone strong but our self-cleaning sealant keeps your headstone or monument in top shape. It eats surface grime, calcium and lime deposits so that the stone doesn’t wear away or streak.
And our sealant works on other products too because we know what it means to honor your loved one’s integrity. If your starting to see signs of damage, you can use our cleaning and sealing kit to make any headstone look new and keep it that way.
At 1/3 the price of traditional options, Stirling StoneWorks is the most affordable option in monuments and memorials. Our Nano-cement technology paired with a self-cleaning sealant ensures that your cast stone piece will stay beautiful and last for generations.
One of our biggest inspirations for Stirling StoneWorks is the work we do with veterans. Our goal is to help provide current conflict monuments in every town across the country. We believe that the greatest thing our cast stone can do is honor our personal family and national heroes, past and present.
