Before you buy

WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW?

Online you will find plenty of guides on how to buy cars, televisions, etc along with ratings, tips and tricks. Most of us do not buy memorial monuments regularly and its hard to find this type of information online. This leaves people confused as to how to properly navigate this purchase. Often times people put their trust in grave monument companies and end up regretting the decision.

Below is a list of what to expect as a customer of a burial memorial company. If the company you are working with can not make these guarantees, you may want to look for a better service.

We provide complete information regarding the granite you are purchasing, where it is quarried and who is doing the sandblasting. We price our monuments fairly, based on this information. You always have the option of the highest quality granite and craftsmanship. We also have more budget-friendly options including granite from overseas. We are entirely upfront with our customers in regards to timeframe, quality, known issues, material reactions and available warranties.

As a memorial customer you have the right to...

  • Expect your memorial to be backed by a meaningful written warranty. This warranty should protect against cracking and changes in lettering appearance over time.
  • Choose a warranty that is backed by irrevocable trust. This ensures that your memorial’s warranty is effective for generations to come.
  • Demand top-quality granite. Dont settle for second-grade granite, craftsmanship or poorly contrasting colors.
  • Have a knowledgeable and experienced memorial consultant who listens to your needs and desires. You do not want a consultant who pushes you into a purchase you are not ready to make or one that is not affordable.
  • Receive an honest estimate of the time-frame needed to complete the entire process ending in the setting of your memorial at the cemetery.
  • Be able to see and approve a computerized layout of your memorial before production to ensure there are no surprises once the monument is complete.
  • A consultant who is familiar with the area’s cemeteries and their regulations, and who will complete and submit any and all permit applications and affidavits required on your behalf.
  • Expect that your engravings be free of black or white paint. Painting letters is a shortcut that will not withstand the test of time.

Be sure the burial monument company you select is working with your best interest in mind. Download a printable version of our buyers guide here. Use this document when asking questions of potential memorial companies.

Our expert designers, engravers and sculptors create your memorial to the exact specifications on your approved rendering.
