Standard Features

One of the DeMaria family quotes is “cheap costs you more in the long run every time.” At Blue Stone, we live and work by that quote; everything we do, we do it with quality and purpose, and when you choose to build with Blue Stone, you choose to build the best. Our standard features go above and beyond to show our customers that their homes are not built cheap, that their investment is well spent and will grow in value over the years they live in the home. Many past Blue Stone customers our proud to say they’ve lived in a Blue Stone home for 20 or 30 years, with minimal upkeep and maintenance. Our standard features are a reflection of that. No corners are ever cut and that’s the Blue Stone guarantee.
