5 things you should know before you choose a monument.

Our craftsmanship shows in every monument we build.

When purchasing a monument, there are generally five factors you’ll need to take into consideration.

Typically, you’ll select and choose from these options based on your own personal preferences or the existing wishes of your deceased loved one. Although in some cases, certain steps may be pre-determined per the regulations of the housing cemetery.

Memorial Cost Considerations

As with the purchase of any item of significant value, there are certain costs you should take into account beforehand. For memorials, monuments and headstones, these are the three most important factors:

  1. The cost of the memorial and any additional design features you may desire.
  2. Cemetery cement foundation costs and/or installation fees.
  3. Sales tax.
