Markers and headstones-The materials available

By Tia Melvi Subscribe to RSS | July 2nd 2012 | Views:

Countless designs and symbols are available for creating the perfect memorial monument for your beloved members who passed away. Naturally as a part of the family you would want the deceased to be remembered forever with a long lasting symbol on the grave. The choices vary and while some people choose angel designs to pay respect and adoration to those in heaven there are many who place large crosses asking for eternal justice from God with pictures of the deceased marked in the headstone for remembrance. Whatever may be the design, it’s best to choose the right type of stone for durability and appeal.

Various stones from which one can pick include:

Granite- This material tends to be a classic choice. The stone brings out classic look and elegance which seems perfect in the form of granite benches and grave markers. Though granite is a bit pricey but this stone is really strong and beautiful with absolute durability. Even natural disasters cannot damage granite. Being a natural stone, granite comes in various colors and patterns which definitely suit every memorial monument or headstone.

Marble- Some people go for marble too. Marble varies in price based on the color and thickness. There are types of this stone which are very reasonable too. Quite like granite, marble can bear some of the harshest weather conditions without a scratch. Being strong and sleek many people opt for marble as the second best thing after granite.

Bronze- Bronze is much cheaper than both granite and marble. Being a heavy product it is extremely durable and can afford artistic details without the slightest worry. Affordability, durability and beauty are three qualities that let bronze stay above the league. Bronze grave markers and bronze headstones are popular options available today.

Aluminum- Though not very common but aluminum is also proactively used for memorial monuments. The durability of this material is even though limited and can only last for about 15-20 years but it looks beautiful.

Setting up a budget can actually save you from over investing and getting something that may just seem irrelevant in the long term. Durability is indeed important but a look at the various options will only reflect the numerous choices that one has based on different budgets and likings. Proper planning and construction mirrors the adoration and respect that people have towards their deceased members. The best thing to do is to design the headstone or memorial monument as per the deceased member’s choice by having things that they loved for that custom effect.
