||Monument Repair and Restoration (Small) - This is our most rewarding service that we perform. It is very sad to see markers or monuments damaged by time, weather, mowing services or vandalism. Regardless of how bad it may look, chances are very good that we can either fully or partially restore it to a good presentable condition. The cost for this service will depend on the size of the monment, the damage to be repaired, the type of tools required and the type of stone we are to work with. That is a lot of variables and an accurate quote without seeing it and examining it, is very difficult.
For this service, we typically take the monument apart (it is not already any pieces) and clean each piece separately. Then we rebuild it from the ground up piece by piece with construction grade epoxy and stone filler, doing our best to produce a reasonable match on color. We can level and raise it also under some conditions. If the foundation and base are made of sandstone, we may be limited as to what we can do without permanently damaging it. In all cases, you will know in advance what we plan to do. The tablet marker in the picture at the left was first placed in 1905. It had been in pieces on the ground for decades. When restored as you see, it stood over 2 feet tall and weighed about 60 pounds. Total cost to the customer was $350.00, which included cleaning it.
