Questions to Ask Before Buying Grave Markers

There are many factors to consider when shopping for grave markers. Before you place an order, you should take some time to find the answers to these questions:
  • Does the cemetery allow this type of grave marker?
Many cemeteries in the United States have strict rules about the types of grave markers that can be placed on their grounds. If you install the wrong kind of monument, they may ask you to remove it.
Before you buy a marker, make sure your cemetery allows it.
  • How much maintenance will this marker require?

The amount of maintenance a grave marker requires largely depends on the material it is made from. Some monuments require monthly care, while others only need to be maintained once every year or two.
Before you buy a marker, decide how often you're willing to clean it, and then verify the monument you want to order fulfills your needs.
  • Does the marker come with a warranty?

You should never purchase a grave marker from a company that is not willing to stand behind its product. Before you place an order, check to see if the seller offers a warranty on the monument. If they do not, you may want to think about buying from someone else.
