Stone Monuments FAQ
What materials do you make monuments from?
We use only the highest quality granite and marble stones. We have over 100 years experience in selecting the finest stones.
Are there different quality levels of stone?
Yes, there are. Some stones have a higher level of impurities, such as iron ore, which can actually rust over time and discolor your stone. Other lower quality stones can have unusually large streaks or spots, which are unsightly, while some stones can have small fissures (even internal) which can manifest themselves years later. That is one reason a written warranty from a company that will actually be in existence years down the road is so important.
Who do you use to build your monuments?
We use us! We have been blessed with some of the finest stone cutters and engravers in the industry. We have several plant employees who have been with us for over 40 years each, a few over 20 years each, etc. Rest assured that the craftsmen working on your monument are the best in the industry.
Do you install your own monuments?
Yes, we use our experienced workers, not sub-contractors, grass cutters, or grave diggers, to install our monuments. You will receive a professional foundation and installation.
What is the most important factor I should consider when purchasing a stone monument?
There are several things which are “most” important: stone quality, lettering / carving quality, foundation quality, design, and warranty. In addition, the company you deal with needs to be reputable, licensed by the state, have full liability coverage, and the longevity to be there when you need them in the future. Also, you need to feel comfortable and trust who you are dealing with. This is an important decision which should not be taken lightly.
