Now Including Repair of Granite Inscriptions
Onsite engraving expanded beyond flat grave markers that require only a last date is becoming more popular within the industry. We now include repair of granite inscriptions that were engraved improperly for misspelled words, dates or replacing a memorial picture or adding a new. This all requires a memorial company with sand blast capabilities.
Cemeteries such as El Toro Memorial Park in Orange County has recently built a world class cremation internment area consisting of walls of granite, a Water feature and a shaded roofing canopy with an adjacent bathroom facility. Families can sit and relax as they pay tribute to their loved ones in a peaceful arena. Each crypt wall space must be engraved, which is a great opportunity for any engraving company.
Engravings must be cleaned up and repainted on an ongoing frequency to look new and legible which is another opportunity for the engraver. Fading and paint peeling is normal for the harsh environment that flat grave markers are subjected to. Paints have been modified that are used in the State of California and must meet EPA paint standards, all toxins and harmful ingredients have been removed that typically helped paints last for many years.
Other projects consist of engraving walk way pavers for schools, churches and public areas. Veterans walls are becoming very popular with Cities and communities. Contact American Headstones for more information about onsite engraving in Orange County and Los Angeles Ca.
