Personalized granite memorials celebrate life in the same unique way that you lived it. . At Chesapeake Monuments we specialize in creating unique and creative memorial designs. We treat every memorial we make as an original work of art.
Getting Ready to Purchase Your Memorial - purchasing a memorial is not something that we do every day and most of us do not know where to begin the processes. The term “memorial” refers to the stone that is erected for your loved one and the cemetery controls what you are able to install…a marker, upright monument, bronze etc. Your choice is in color, design, wording of inscription..
Over time, outdoor elements can leave a granite or marble memorial dirty and prone to moss and lichen growth. Contact us to have your memorial professionally cleaned..
With all metals, the process of oxidation will occur over time, causing the natural copper in bronze plaques and memorials to patina (turn to green). A clear coat product applied during production will slow this natural process. Should you desire to have your bronze memorial returned to its original brilliance, contact us to schedule professional refinishing.
A good concrete foundation is key in preventing tilting or leaning of monuments which can occur with the freezing and thawing conditions in this area of the country. Whenever cemetery regulations allow, we will complete the foundation for your memorial.
When a final date needs to be engraved on a memorial already installed in a cemetery, please contact us. The option of pre-paying for this service is available with any memorial when purchased through our company..
When cemetery regulations permit, we will provide the installation of your memorial or monument at the cemetery. In the event that a pre-installed memorial needs to be relocated, we also provide this service.
We offer sandblasting services on non-memorial related items at an hourly rate charge. Please contact us for details.
As a service to the community, we offer a brokerage service where one can list for sale any unwanted cemetery property. Those interested in cemetery property can contact us for assistance in locating property to meet their needs.
