Beyond the personal memorial that is of great importance to many people throughout New Jersey, We also specialize in creating the very best types of civic memorial for Government, municipalities, civic causes, police and fire departments, the military, and corporations. Don’t forget deceased pets, either!
Bronze plaques may be ordered in more than one type. The available types include ledge markers, flush markers, bevel markers, slant markers, and upright markers. Metal plaques also come in aluminum and zinc, and may be etched or machine engraved. Plaques are fully customizable by size, shape, and color. Plaques are used not only a grave markers, but also to commemorate people and events.
Law firms, corporations, schools, and community organizations may add a plaque to mark their office or building. As grave markers, though, the plaque serves a special purpose, to mark the life and death of a person who brought value to the lives of other people.
Sadly, over time grave markers may become warn and require restoration or repair. Bronze and brass may become dull or oxidized and tarnished, and even marble or limestone may attract natural plant growth or moss that can be removed. Because of their historical value, and to honor our dead, as well as the financial value of many markers, the importance of plaque refinishing cannot be overstated. Refinishing may be needed due to weather, age, or the elements. In the cold NJ winters, this may be especially true.
We work to restore markers to their original luster and beauty by first assessing condition and damage as well as steps needed to restore, preparing a price quote for needed services, then performing perfect cleaning. For bronze and aluminum, we start by sandblasting the plaque to remove dirt and grime, before working to restore patina. To refinish stone, we highlight all raised letters, then apply a protective clear coat. For plaques with damage, our team will study any photographs or documents that note the original appearance before beginning repair. Once our work is complete, we will review all steps taken with you to ensure your complete satisfaction.
We also build mausoleums for those wishing a more permanent above-ground gravesite. A mausoleum may cost more than a metal or stone grave marker, but will serve as an essentially permanent gravesite that may provide for more than one entombment. Mausoleums are generally built for families, where more than one family member will be entombed. A mausoleum is s building that is built with a solid granite wall and floor. Because the mausoleum may provide seating indoors, it allows for visits to gravesites throughout the year.
The mausoleum has been famous throughout history, including the Taj Mahal in India, the the ancient Catacombs outside Rome, and the Great Pyramids of Egypt. The mausoleum is not uncommon even today, and many cemeteries offer spaces for mausoleums.
