Restore any old marker back to life


It can be tough to keep the memorial of a loved one in flawless condition. While memorial markers are durable, they are not invulnerable to outdoor exposure. Due to time, corrosion, or weather conditions, markers can be susceptible to decay. But, you can fix many problems and prevent greater damage with stone restoration.


Before you start the process, make sure to examine the stone or material used to craft the marker. Even with durable materials like granite and marble, markers are still very fragile and need to be handled with care. When in doubt, call an expert.


Marble is a softer stone that was once the most used for memorials. Today we can see why granite, which is much harder, has taken its place. They tend to deteriorate over time and get covered in lichens.


Granite over time will begin to grow mosses and lichens on it. Cleaning this off is important. Use a special solution to do this, and if you visit our FAQ’s page you can see how to do it yourself.


Stones are now refinished with paint to make them look new and readable again. If your stone has no paint in it or the paint has faded this may be an option for you.


Also, through time, some memorial restoration may include foundation repair:

  • •Replace old deteriorating foundations
  • •Re-level new or old stones that are leaning
  • •Reset a die that is sliding off its base
  • •Add foundations to stones
