We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words but what else can it do?
The picture poster below is worth far more than words alone. It shows us what can happen to a gravestone after it was subjected to the wrong kind of repair practices and products; used by someone who probably had no idea what would happen to it afterward.
We are reminded that like with anything else in life, properly conducting gravestone restoration comes with a price and a learning curve. The more educated we are about something, the better job we will do dealing with it. This can only happen from being taught by knowledgeable teachers who were properly trained themselves.
This picture gives us a good start to staying on the right path of greater learning while grasping the true value of using proper products and methods when engaging in the different types of gravestone repairs.
Researching well-respected websites such as "The Association of Gravestone Studies" and the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training - NCPTT is also recommended.
DO your homework first so you will DO NO HARM to your ancestors' gravestones!
