What should I be aware of when ordering granite for gravestones or memorials?

Our 100 plus years of experience has taught us that there are different types and quality of granite. Coarse or large grain granite tends to be brittle. Some of the intricate designs or small lettering may break off due to water expansion or contraction within a course stone.  When you choose fine-grain granite, they are smaller and more tightly grained, which tends to withstand the elements better. Modern Monuments carries a large selection of granites.

These granites are proven to retain their original style, lettering and withstand varying weather conditions. During our consultation, we can confidently direct you to the best granite for your memorial's design and lettering selection.
