We choose to work primarily with Granite, as it is the highest
quality natural solid stone, which is best suited to memorials. It
has proven to be weather resistant and durable, ensuring that
we are offering our customers satisfaction, not just for today,
but also for generations to come.
Its strength and beauty, gives us the confidence that we are providing
a memorial that will last. Granite is also better able to take inscriptions
than other natural products; they are clear and can easily be added
to when required. This exceptional stone that can be supplied in
many colours and worked into traditional and modern shapes with a
variety of finishes.
Usually the face of the memorial is polished, to facilitate the inscription.
For the top, back and sides, they are usually either polished,
or are rocked. The natural rock finish provides a contrast with
the face; however, it is more prone to growing lichen, which incurs
a greater amount of maintenance required. Most of the memorials
that we offer have polished sides and backs. These memorials, teamed
with a granite base, are relatively maintance free, providing no
rough areas for lichen to start growing.
