Celebrating 50 years of History
It’s a history about people and building a better community.
From our humble beginnings in 1965 hand-making patio slabs, Best Way Stone® has become a supplier of a wide range of landscaping products across the GTA and beyond with multiple state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. We’ve grown and expanded our product line with the dedication of our employees and customers who continue to return to us for decorative hardscapes.
We remain a family business and we’ve never forgotten our roots. In fact Best Way Stone® is still run by family members who spend a little more time making sure our business, our partners, and our customers receive the best products on the market.
This is how we made it to our first 50 years, and we look forward to the next 50 with you.
QUALITY BUILT INTO EVERYTHING
Since 1965, Best Way Stone® has been providing superior quality products to the landscape market. We consistently exceed all CSA and ASTM industry specifications and hold our products to the highest standards. Every Best Way Stone® paver is slip resistant,
resistant to de-icing salt, salt water, and chlorine and will not deteriorate from oil or gas spills, all backed by Best Way Stone®’s transferable lifetime guarantee.
A FAMILY APPROACH TO SERVICE
Being a family owned and operated company has given us the ability to build strong, loyal relationships with our customers by creating positive experiences every step of the way – from the first moment of design inspiration right through to the delivery of our product.
THE ABILITY TO INNOVATE
Over the past 50 years Best Way Stone® has consistently created new and innovative products, always pushing the limits of design and functionality. In the years to come, we look forward to building on that innovation in everything we do. It’s something that’s just
