This is the exclusive VERMONT STYLE lettering method.
Letters and designs show up better and longer when the granite is not just sandblasted but sandblasted and STEEL BLASTED. This unique double process and double abrasivelettering method produces maximum contrast between polished and unpolished areas of granite. This extra step allows the natural beauty of the letters and design to show through USING NO ARTIFICIAL ENHANCERS like paint or dye. Both are widely used in the industry but not by us.
This ensures LONG LASTING NATURAL BEAUTY AND SUPERIOR READABILITY. Quality is not expensive it’s priceless.
Competitive Pricing - Our prices are fair and reflect the cost of doing business. Compare them if you wish but make sure you compare apples to apples before you buy. We use a superior lettering process that costs extra to do in most sandblast operations. But we remodeled our shop recently so this extra step costs no more to produce in our new state of the art shop.
Selection - Over 300 memorials in stock available for immediate engraving and installation.
Workmanship - All carving and lettering performed in house in our own plant. We take great pride in our craftsmen. We have assembled the finest team of memorial manufactures in the area.This includes experts who specialize in granite sculpting (statues, etc.), complete design layout, sand blasting, installation and repair.
