Granite Offers an Endless Variety of Options

Headstones have been made from granite for hundreds of years because of its durability and beauty. Granite is available in several colors (see below), textures, shapes, and sizes – all available as both single and companion monuments. Families can make decisions about engravings, important dates, terms of endearment, photos, emblems, and other embellishments.

The three components that determine the price of a monument are color, size, and monument style. Granite monuments come in four basic styles (see photos below).

  • Upright – a monument that projects up from the ground and is set on a base

  • Slant – a lower profile monument that is typically less expensive than an upright

  • Bevel – a monument raised above the ground and installed parallel to the ground

  • Flush – a monument that is installed level with the ground

Regardless of your choice, Maplewood will create a scale drawing of your selection for you to review. You can either accept the drawing or make changes. Once we have your final approval, fabrication will begin.

Granite Accessories

Cameo – A steel and porcelain replica of your special photo is either mounted on or recessed into your new or existing monument (not available on flush markers)

Emblems – These personalization additions can be included in the design of a new monument or attached to an existing monument. Hundreds of emblems are available for you to choose from. Categories of available emblems include hobbies, religion, occupations, organizations, military, animals, and many more.

Vases – Vases may be included in any new monument design or added to any existing monument. Depending on the marker type, the vase may be mounted on, within, or beside the marker. Design options and colors are available to choose from.
