A monument is generally intended to say something unique about the person being memorialized, and can be a symbol of that life for generations to come. When choosing a stone, you will be making decisions such as:
We build our monuments with the finest granite, utilizing its innate beauty, hardness and durability. Unlike other memorials, a granite memorial will keep its original beauty for decades to come. We import the highest quality granite from suppliers all over the world and inspect each piece of stone for flaws such as chips, cracks and inconsistent veining or flow. Unacceptable granite pieces are discarded.
It’s difficult to show actual granite color in a photograph, so we recommend that you see the natural multi-dimensional beauty of each granite stone color in person to fully understand what your finished monument will look like. We can meet right in your cemetery.
Stones are shaped and finished in Barre, Vermont, the largest group of granite quarries in the United States. Most monuments are ready in six to eight weeks using the wide variety of granite colors we have in stock. If we need to import something special it could take six months.
