Craftsmanship in Stone Since 1900
We have tried to provide here a little information to let you get acquainted with us, and to help you get started thinking about a memorial.
To take the next step, please email us or contact us one of the old-fashioned ways – give us a call or just drop in. We’ll be glad attend to you questions and give you more information specific to your needs. Send a photo or sketch and some details and we will be pleased to provide a price quotation.
We’ll be glad to send you pages of the types of design suggestions that are appropriate and permitted by the cemetery. If you want to tell us an idea you have in mind, we will be glad to make a drawing for you to see how that would look with all the lettering and decoration in a finished design.
Important things to consider when buying a monument or marker
Most larger cemeteries have their own rules and regulations regarding what they will allow to be installed. Often these rules vary from section to section within the same cemetery, so it helps to know the cemetery’s designation of the grave location. You need to be aware of this when you begin looking for a stone, and we will need to know to be helpful when we talk. We are familiar with just about every cemetery in this part of Texas and can help you keep your design compliant with the rules.
Know whether you need to mark a single grave or two graves side-by-side, or a double depth burial in one grave space,
Will you want to match existing work for other family members? We excel at duplication work, as we have been making monuments for four generations and know the skills that were needed to the older styles, as well as the current technologies.
If you have some ideas you would like to see in a custom design, it usually costs no more for us to work up a drawing of the idea for your approval or modifications. It is helpful for you to bring us any sketches, clip art, lettering styles, however rough they are. We can show you how they would look in a monument layout.
We have the required forms for the various cemeteries’ permits, waivers, foundation and setting fees and will compete them with you. We are required to send them to the cemetery with our check for the total of fees, and the completed forms with the signature of the person whom the cemetery recognizes as the owner. Please be sure you know whose name will be accepted by the cemetery.
Monday-Friday 8 a.m. -4:30 p.m.
