Architectural Cut
Stone Specialist

About

Continental Cut Stone has achieved over 35 years of growth. We have honed our craft and improved our technology to meet the demands of our innovative and driven design community, builders and customers.

We are a nationally recognized Architectural Cut Stone fabrication mill and quarrier of Cream and Shell and Lueders Limestone. We specialize in custom cut limestone elements, quarried dimensional building and landscape products.

Architects, Masons and Contractors continue to partner with CCS as their premier supplier.  We continue to combine old world craftsmanship with cutting edge technology.

Unlike many companies providing limestone building materials, Continental Cut Stone has its own fabrication mill and limestone quarry sources. Our operations quarry “Cordova” Cream, Shell Stone and Lueders Limestone adding to efficiencies in production and cost effectiveness to the bottom line.

History

Rob Teel, President

At 27 Rob Teel, our Founder and President, had never seen a limestone fabrication mill but he always wanted to run his own business. 

Soon after graduating with an Engineering Management Degree from Vanderbilt University, at age 27 he moved from Dallas to Austin to open and manage a retail stone yard. 

With his passion for people and desire to create a working atmosphere that focuses on getting the job done, he soon found himself invested in a business that is now known as a nationally recognized custom stone fabricator and quarrier of “Cordova” Cream Shell limestone and Lueders limestone.

He puts the right people in place, empowers them to grow and prosper and continues to invest in technology and resources to get the job done.
