As long as permissible by your cemetery, we would be pleased to install your memorial for you. While many memorial companies install concrete foundations, we install a solid granite foundation for greater stability and long-term support. Because the foundation must be dug into the ground, installation of the headstone can only take place when the ground is dry and frost free. In the Peace Country, installations will typically be done between May and October.
The weather in the Peace Country isn’t always kind. Many years of the outdoor elements can sometimes cause a certain degree of “weathering” to a memorial. We see this more frequently affect the lettering on sandblasted memorials. Please contact us to discuss your concern, and we will do our best to assist you in restoring the granite as best possible.
Please note: the structural integrity of granite should not be affected by normal weather and is covered under our everlasting guarantee.
Infrequently, memorial stones may be in need of repair due to natural disasters or vandalism. If you find that your headstone requires repair, we can help you out. Our memorialists will treat your stone with the utmost attention and care.
Due to settling of the ground or shifting, a headstone may end up shifting or tilting as a result. We mitigate the chance of this happening by using a granite foundation which is much more durable than a concrete foundation. However, we have no control over the stability of the ground at the cemetery. If shifting occurs, and you have an issue with a headstone that is sinking or is otherwise unlevel, our installers can visit the site and correct the problem.
Sometimes a family will purchase memorials with space reserved to include names of other family members at a later date. We can remove the stone and add sandblasting or laser etching to an existing monument.
Many individuals like to plan for the future. For some people, this means planning and paying for their own memorial. We call this a “pre-need”. A pre-need has many benefits:
Peace of Mind
In choosing your own memorial, you are ensuring that your loved ones don’t have to worry about making difficult decisions while they are grieving.
You can choose to design your own memorial so it is personal to you and reflects your own individuality and style. Your family won’t have to guess what you would have wanted as far as model, size, color and inscription.
Planning and paying for your memorial now means that your family won’t have to worry about it at a time when there may be other financial burdens. It also means that although it may not be needed for many years, your memorial is guaranteed at today’s prices and won’t be affected by inflation and cost increases.
