Can a headstone be renovated or cleaned up?
Headstones that are older are susceptible to weathering and corrosion. Headstones made of harder stones such as granite can be easily cleaned as it is not as porous whereas stones such as marble and limestone can get eroded and dirty as they are softer . These types of stone can be cleaned through a few different processes. Each job has to be accessed individually to see which process will get the best results.
Can new lettering be added to an existing headstone?
New lettering or an inscription can be added to a headstone if there is the space required on the headstone. The Headstone can be lettered in the graveyard or be removed and worked on in our workshop. Almost all lettering styles can be replicated. Note that lettering in the cemetery is very much affected by the weather as it is a dry weather job so we tend to do most inscriptions between Late March to November but we will always try our utmost to get a name done, if needed between these dates.
