The columbarium is more than just a resting place. The structure can also define our vision of beauty, love and devotion for our dearly departed. Current columbaria manufacturing designs focus on: architecture, advanced engineering, craftsmanship and the use of 100% granite exteriors. Columbaria are placed in permanent sites that are open to the public in cemeteries, funeral homes, or churches.

We always want the best for our loved ones, that's why many families make a point of regularly cleaning the memorial stones. Cleaning the monuments helps to maintain the general appearance of the headstone or gravestone. So many modern techniques are used to clean and maintain newer granite memorials, but these techniques may not be applicable for older stones. Chemicals or cleaning processes may damage older monuments.

Some wish to be buried, while others wish to be cremated. The memorial marker can be represented in a variety of forms, as a monument or a columbarium.
