Standerfer Stoneworks for rock solid service, creativity

Dave and Audrey Standerfer agree with the Nobel Prize winning poet Boy Dylan that “everybody must get stoned” — as in granite and quartz that warms your home, adds class with a natural artistic design to your walls and value to your best investment.

The new owners of Standerfer Stoneworks, formerly Linegar Stoneworks on Kalifornsky Beach Road. is the only locally owned stone countertop fabricator on the Kenai Peninsula, specializing in granite, quartz, marble, soapstone and exotics.

“We bought the shop last summer and my crew has 25-30 years of hands-on stonework experience that gives us a strong team when it comes to beautifying or renewing your countertops, bath or living rooms,” Dave Standerfer told the Dispatch in an interview. “My wife and I had been looking to buy a business locally, I love to work with my hands and when this opportunity popped up for us we jumped on it and it has been working out great ever since.”

New precision cutting technology is responsible for the wave of popularity in granite countertops that has swept the nation and local area, Dave says.

“We have a state-of-the art computer-controlled CNC router that we can use to fit an entire kitchen or vanity in your bathroom. It cuts it to any shape and polishes edges. We can cut a very fancy profile for whatever you can design or need, or our team can help you create a unique design for your home,” said Dave.

The showroom at Standerfer Stoneworks has examples of what they are able to fabricate and samples of granite from all over the world.

“If you don’t see what you like, let us know! We can often work with our manufacturers to get you the stone you want. We specialize in custom countertops for kitchen counters and kitchen islands, bathroom vanities and showers, fireplaces and anything you can think of. We can help you from the design phase to installation,” says Ali of Team Standerfer Stoneworks.

“The first thing I ask is what the dimensions are and what they are looking for, then I give them a complete run down of the materials we carry and which would be best for their job, matching the material, granite, quartz or soapstone with what they already have or will be creating in a new structure. We have a computer program that we can feed all the dimensions into and show you exactly what the material will look like and cost including installation. We work with the customer every step of the way to create and fabricate something unique and specific to their taste,” she said.

“It’s great business and keeps my husband out of my hair,” laughed Audrey Standerfer. “We have a sense of belonging to this community and we want to serve it in a personal way. Our children have ties here and hope to be here for many generations.”

In addition to the state of the art CNC router, Standerfer Stoneworks has a bridge saw made by Matrix with a cutting table by Johnson.

“We float the bridge saw table every other week to keep it in good shape (floating is covering the table in concrete to make a new cutting surface). We wet cut and polish everything that comes through the shop. We also have a tile saw and a ring saw that is used to make very intricate cuts out of stone. We are distributors for Pental, MSI, Cambria, Meta, OTM, and Cosmos. We use Lynden Transport for shipping our materials here,” said Dave.
