This is the second article in our series shining a light on our excellent local businesses.

 

Ryan Haylock is known as ‘The Stoneman,’ having worked in the business for 20 years. His business, Stoneman Products Supply, is now reaching new heights as he ramps up his skilful offerings for home and business owners. Crafting a wide range of manufactured stone from locally sourced materials, Ryan has created some beautiful stones for walls, outdoor kitchens, paving stones, back splashes and much more.

“While we have been producing stonework for clients for the past 20 years, I’ve found that clients want different and yet still great quality product, so over the past four years I’ve been developing this natural-look stone made from concrete,” he advises. “We also supply pavers, tiles and pool coping in natural stone as well.”

His products are incredibly versatile and can suit each customer’s needs. Their manufactured stone can be customised according to colour schemes to match what people want, he advised.

At Stoneman Products Supply, they have created their own moulds from which they can produce a wide range of stone profiles and colours to suit all tastes and requirements. Using concrete to form natural-looking stone, they have pioneered a mortarless ledgestone system using metal flashing embedded in the stone, by which his craftsmen can quickly and efficiently produce amazing results for their customers.

“You don’t need mortar, you don’t need a mason, as long as you have a level starting point you are good to go,” he stated.

For inspiration, Ryan said he looked at natural stones around Cayman and took their colourings to ensure authenticity.

“I took some of the stones from the Bluff on Cayman Brac and looked at their colours,” he said. “I chose rocks from different parts of the island and named some products accordingly, such as High Rock, and Savannah White.”

Frank Schilling, owner of Mykonos restaurant, employed Ryan’s services for his restaurant.

“Ryan did a fabulous job capturing the spirit of Greece in our local stone,” he confirmed. “He was patient with us to make sure the colours of the stone were consistent and the spacing and patterns rhymed with the Greek patterns we were trying to achieve — all while paying respect to the stone of our own country as he created this beautiful art.  We were blessed to find such a skilled artisan in our own backyard and I can’t wait to work with him again.”

Anyone considering stone is encouraged to go to his workshop on Sleepy Hollow Drive so they can actually see and touch the stonework for themselves.
