Here is a quick and helpful buying guide to ensure you get the monument you're looking for.
Deciding the shape and size of your monument is a great start if you're not sure exactly what you're looking for. Throughout our site you will notice different monument shapes. Our Standard monuments come in 6 different styles. Flush, Bevel, Slant, Upright, Benches, and Special Shapes. Be sure to check with your cemetery for any monument shape or size restrictions. If you have any questions with this step, please give us a call.
Granite comes in a wide variety of colors. Color can have a significant impact on price. Although Black and Grey granite both have tremendous durability, Grey granite is typically the most affordable option. You can view several popular color options in the Monuments & Design section of our website.
After you have selected the shape and color of your stone, it is time to choose a design. At The Modern Monument we specialize in
working directly with each family to provide that perfect
representation of your loved one.
Every Monument requires a level foundation. And every cemetery has a fee that they require you to pay for that foundation. Some cemeteries will provide this service for as little as 50 cents a square inch or less. Others demand an exorbitant price. The regional average is around 70 cents a square inch. At The Modern Monument we will work with your cemetery representative to ensure your monument receives a proper foundation.
