Step 1: Choose stone
Memorials need to be designed with longevity in mind and at Natchez Monument we use only the highest quality granites to ensure this. Granite is among the hardest and most durable natural elements that the earth has to offer. As such, it requires an incredible amount of craftsmanship to sculpt it into a fitting memorial. Natchez Monument employs an array of skilled workers who work with the latest technologies available to produce unrivaled memorials.
Step 2: Select a design
Once a design has been agreed upon and the contracts signed, our production team works hard to deliver the memorial to you as fast as possible, usually within 6 to 8 weeks. From the first computer-generated design, through to the sandblasting or laser etching stages, to the final delivery, the utmost care is given to ensure your memorial will exceed your expectations.
Step 3: Installation
Every Natchez Monument Company memorial is expertly erected by our experienced personnel and is paced on a solid foundation which carries our permanent guarantee to remain upright and level.
