The YK Stone Difference


YK Stone Center is a family owned and operated business located in Denver, Colorado. We specialize in custom design, fabrication and installation of natural stone materials. In addition to natural stone, we are also a supplier and fabricator for the following brands: Cambria, Caesarstone, Silestone, Radianz, Chroma Quartz and Neolith materials. Since our official opening in 2000, YK Stone Center Inc., has become one of Denver's highly reputable and recommended stone facilities.

Ilya Khrestsov, along with his brothers Val and Konstantin are in charge of managing company’s entire process from sales to installation overview. Together, the Khrestsov Family have built a very successful company, one that strives to satisfy its customers by offering them superior service and outstanding quality. In 2008, they acquired an old auto body shop, which was then turned into an outstanding showroom showcasing stone materials & tile and a fabrication shop.

Currently our yard inventory holds about 50 colors of Denver granite and marble materials as well as quartz slabs. We also have a wide variety of remnants in many different colors and sizes, those are used for a bathroom or a laundry countertop. Stone Slabs that we import from Italy, Brazil, and Spain, as well as slabs purchased locally in U.S. are hand-picked by our staff and shipped directly to our showroom in Denver. Recently we have become the most recognized company in Denver for fabricating a new trendy material called Neolith (read about in our blog). We at YK Stone Center have done many different projects with Neolith, and while it is a very challenging material to work with, the end result is nothing short of spectacular.

Couple years ago we have gone all digital, aquairing machines such as Fusion Jetsaw, Slabsmith software, Prodim laser for templating, and also a new CNC machine. We are now a completely digital company.

Be it a large complex project or a small remodel, we specialize in granite fabrication & installation services and guarantee our work to be of the best quality on all stone work. "We Cut Surfaces Not Corners" is our motto. Our work includes cutting to size countertops; kitchen, vanity, laundry, fireplace, bath surroundings, walls, floors, BBQ, outdoor kitchens, and more.

You are more than welcome to come visit our showroom and browse our current inventory of over 50 colors of the bestselling Denver granite, Denver marble, Denver glass tile & mosaic tile, and Denver travertine materials, as well as Natural Quartz Surfaces.

Thank you for stopping by our website, we hope that you stop by our showroom and we look forward to doing business with you soon.

The YK Stone Center Process


We respond promptly to your call or e-mail. We answer all of your questions about your project during estimate. To help us better understand your project, please print out the measuring table, fill it out as much as possible and fax, e-mail, or simply bring it with you when you come in to look at the materials. The layout drawing should be with approximate wall to wall dimensions, sink and cooktop placement, then based on your drawing we can provide you with an estimate. You can also use our online contact form to send us your layout and measurements for a faster turnaround. If you have not yet chosen your granite selection, we can give you prices based on the different price groups of granite or quartz materials available in our yard.

The Showroom

You have ideas and we have experts who will guide you and bring your imagination into reality. Bring any samples such as a cabinet’s door, tile, floors & wall paint to work with colors and styles. Our interior designers, Kate and Jan, will answer any questions you may have and help you choose a proper design for your project. We strive to carry the most finest granites and hard surface material for you to choose from- Granite Slabs, Marble Slabs, Caesarstone Quartz Slabs, Silestone Quartz Slabs, Cambrias Quartz Slabs, as well as small remnants for your smaller projects. We also carry a Silgranite Blanco sinks, as well as stock Porcelain (Vitra China), Stainless Steel and Glass sinks for kitchen, bars, vanities, & laundry rooms.


For templating, we do not need to remove your existing countertops- so you can use current countertop until installation day. In order to complete the template, your cabinets should be properly installed & leveled in order for us to perfectly install the countertops. We use newest digital laser technology, it is much faster and is reliable as well as we don't have to deal with long wooden strips and staple guns. Template takes from 1-2 hrs depending on the size and difficulty of the project – thus all the drawings are digital, providing you with a final quote. All appliances must be at the jobsite during the installation process. Generally from this point, the fabrication will begin and the install is in 7-10 business days.


After we receive your signed approval on the countertops & template, we take a photo of your selected slab with our newest slabsmith photo rendering software, providing you with the ultimate layout of your countertops. When we create your layout, we are looking into all details such as where is the best spot for seams, direction of veins & grain. We have the ability to shape various edges, sink cutouts, corners and shapes that are desired by our customers in our Denver facility with our waterjet machine. We also offer leathering, and honing of the surface of the stone.. Some minor cuts and polishing may be done on job side.


Generally an average size kitchen countertop installation takes just one day. We will tear out your existing countertops, if your project requires it, and install your beautiful granite countertops in the same day. Our installers will leave your home in exactly the same state it was in when we arrived, that is except for the elegant and functional surfacing project left behind. At YK Stone Center, we know that our excellence in craftsmanship is our best advertisement, no questions asked quality guaranteed. A care and maintenance information sheet as well as a 3-in-one cleaner will be left for you. We will also require a “project completion/project satisfaction” form to be signed.

Side Notes
  • Final seam placement on countertops and backsplashes is the fabricator’s responsibility.
  • Industry standard granite seams in width  are 1/16” nominal, with a tolerance of ±1/64” according to The Marble Institute of America.
  • All sinks, faucets, and appliances have to be on-site for the template. Return trips for these items not on site will cost the responsible party $150.
  • If YKSC handles the existing COUNTERTOP tear out, we will not be held responsible for older cabinets that may fall apart. We are not responsible for rebuilding customers’ cabinets. We are not responsible for damage to floors, cabinets, wallpaper, paint, etc. during tear outs  or installations. We will take normal measures to protect these areas. 
  • YKSC does not re-hook plumbing or appliances and we recommend a plumber or electrician be scheduled the next day.
  • Sinks should not be used untill after a 24hr pd after the install.
  • The widest unsupported overhang is 10" for 3 cm stone and all supports have to be discussed and if needed- installed prior to the template. YKSC is not responsible for installing these items.
  • Granite can stain (usually from oil & acid fluids) so make sure if you have a spill on your top that you wipe it up immediately. Please refer to Care and Maintenance page for more information.
  • We complete most of c-top cutouts in our fabrication shop, but some granite installation require aditional cutouts done on site. Installers will try to contain stone dust as much as possible, but there will be some dust after the install. It will settle and can be cleaned later.
  • Very tight areas (example, between tall cabinets) can produce minor scratching when setting the stone.
  • When installing some large pieces, if the stone is lifted incorrectly, the entire piece can break. This rarely happens and if it does happen a replacement piece will be fabricated as quickly as possible. YKSC is not responsible for expenses due to any delays resulting from a broken piece that has to be re-fabricated.
  • Oversized Granite Composite, Cast Iron Undermount sinks usually require a sink base cabinet support frame be built to hold the sink.
