We install each monument on a granite or sacrete foundation to help eliminate the tilting or leaning found in almost every cemetery. While we cannot guarantee that our monuments will never lean or tilt, using a higher quality foundation does help, and we guarantee that we will straighten your monument should it ever become un-level. We can also help should your monument ever need to be cleaned or have lettering added.
