Restoration of Fine Natural Stone started in 1994 by me, Joe Porcello. Prior to starting granite countertops installation in the West Chicago area, I built custom homes for 11 years as a carpenter. I make time for research and development, in order to continue to better myself in the stone industry. My clients are extremely important to me. I strive to be polite, happy, outgoing and knowledgeable of Natural Stone. I feel truly blessed to have found my purpose in life. Clients are always blown away by the before and after of my work. I always tell my clients, “You don’t have to be in the business or knowledgeable about stone, everyone knows what a great job looks like when they see it.”. Clients are always blown away by the before and after of my work. When I am not working on countertop restoration I am always dressed up. I am a son of a tailor and a grandson of a shoe maker, it’s important to always look your best. I love history, art, movies, and all things stone! I am a family man, I enjoy spending time at home, in Chicago, with my family just watching movies. My family’s name goes back to the Roman times, it was first mentioned on a lead tablet. I learned my core values from my family and Taekkwondo.
A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation.
He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing.
To himself, he always appears to be doing both.
