Restoration and Service
Our services will always be carried out with the greatest deal of care and respect.
Additional Text and Graphics – The team at Block Stoneworks will pick up the memorial and return to our facility in Morden to add the text and graphics. Some memorials may require cleaning and/or repainting and the family will be provided a quote for this service. If the foundation and base require leveling this will be completed at the site when we return with the memorial.
Cleaning, Levelling and Repainting – An onsite visit is made to prepare a quotation and then return with equipment/supplies to complete the tasks required.
Replacement of Foundation – An onsite visit is made to prepare a quotation and then return with equipment/supplies to complete the tasks required. In the past foundations were made of a concrete pad that was poured on-site at the cemetery and sometimes the foundation is poured over a pile of boulders. In order for the memorial not to move again the contents under the foundation will require re-leveling with quarter down which may involve the removal of some boulders. Sometimes the concrete foundation can be re-used and other times it is replaced with a new granite foundation.
Replacement of Memorial Base – It is common for ash internments to take place on family plots requiring the additional name(s) to the existing memorial. Families have the option of replacing the memorial base with a polished slant front to accommodate the text and graphics of the additional family member at the same plot.
