The foundation is the cement pad that is poured
level with the ground and approximately 4 feet deep
for the monument to rest on. The
purpose of the foundation is to keep the monument
level, keep it from sinking and prevent heaving from
the frost. The
Cemetery in which the monument will be placed will
be responsible for installing the foundation. We will
make all the necessary arrangements with the cemetery
to pour the foundation. Pricing of foundations vary
according to the size of the monument.
Corner Posts are small blocks of granite or
marble that are initialed with the first letter of
the family's last name. The posts are placed flush
with the ground and are set on the four corners of
the cemetery lot to mark the boundary. Some
cemeteries require some sort of marker to distinguish
a family's lot, others do not. We can verify if a
particular cemetery requires them or not.
