Step One Determine the requirements and regulations of your cemetery. Many cemeteries have monument size and shape requirements based on the number of graves a family owns. Some cemeteries only allow specific colors of granite, while others require bronze markers. For help finding your cemetery's requirements, please call us at 570-322-3466.
Step Two Select the color of granite for the memorial. Granite color varies depending on where it was quarried. We import granite from all over the world and offer a selection of beautiful granite colors from North America. Memorial price depends, in part, on your choice of granite.
Step Three To make a memorial design your family's personal tribute to a loved one, please consider several important questions:
1) What shape of stone do you prefer? 2) What design elements should your memorial feature? 3) Would you like to inscribe a family saying or religious verse? 4) What other personal elements are important for your memorial?
The best way to answer these questions is to visit a showroom and let our designers guide you through the process.
Depending on style and granite color, your memorial can take from six weeks to six months to be made. Popular granite colors and sizes are often already in inventory, so many memorials can be delivered in 8-12 weeks.
At Kieser Monuments we have a selection of over 20 different granite colors. We can special order any granite color of your choice. Below are a few of the more popular granite colors that are available for one to choose from.
One of the most important gifts you can give your loved ones is the gift of planning ahead. You can make the decisions regarding the design of a lasting memorial and have it created to fulfill your dreams and expectations. At Kieser Monuments, we will assist you in designing a memorial, choosing the colors of granite to be used, designating the inscriptions, and pre-paying the costs of the memorial.
By planning ahead, you ensure that you will have the exact memorial that you envisioned. By taking these steps, you can alleviate stress and potential conflicts created when grieving family members are confronted with these decisions. Your payment is escrowed in an account to guarantee you and your family that the quality and craftsmanship of your order is achieved.
Another advantage of planning ahead is that the price of the memorial will be protected from future price increases. The cost today will be the final cost-it will not increase as the cost of living increases.
