Our brand is our name. For three generations the Shouldice family has owned and operated Shouldice Stone. Our grandfather, Bev Shouldice, started the company in 1947. Our parents, Rob and June then grew the business by adding numerous innovations and new products to reflect our customers' expanding tastes. Today we are honoured to continue the family legacy and are growing our business for generations to come.
We proudly carry on our grandfather’s promise: “Our handshake is our word, and our word is our bond.”

As a third-generation, family-owned company, we take immense pride in our customer service. We are not happy until every one of our customers is happy.
Ninety per cent of our materials are sourced from within 25 km of our Shallow Lake, Ontario, manufacturing facility. Our in-house R&D team continually looks for ways to make our products and processes more sustainable.
Our lineup of stone and brick products can be used to create any style of building, from a classic country farmhouse to an ultra-modern high rise.
Shouldice offers a lifetime warranty provided the initial purchaser is the product owner, the products are used according to local building codes and the products are installed according to specifications and installation guidelines.
We firmly believe that masonry is the best choice for cladding a building. For one, no other siding products come close to the durability and longevity of masonry products. There is no need for toxic cleaners or frequently replacing damaged materials. Studies have also shown that masonry structures are 8 to 13 per cent more energy efficient than buildings with stucco or siding.
Our brick products also earn LEED certification points. Our goals for the future include trying to reuse or recycle as much of the material used in our manufacturing and distribution processes as possible. One current example is an incentive program encouraging distributors to return our wooden pallets when they’re done. We make any repairs in-house as needed and reuse them multiple times.
