My wife and I hired Calao Stone for our Capitol Hill rowhome in Washington. They were extremely prompt, professional, and responsive, and provided a very reasonable estimate and timeframe for our renovation project.

Colao’s crews completely transformed our relatively-small rowhome, the excellent quality is apparent at first sight.

In short, if you’re looking for professional, timely, reasonable company in the Washington, D.C., area, choose Colao Stone, we recommend them without reservation.

About US


Colao & Peter began 20 years ago as a masonry company servicing the high-end residential market. After 10 years, we partnered with J.R. Peter to become one of DCs most award winning full service outdoor environment companies. Based on a realization that the same high-end results can be achieved for all outdoor related projects, we created our carpentry structure division, ensuring all clients can have the same level of design and quality irrespective of the size of their projects.
