Tackling the larger multi-piece monuments can be tricky work requiring equipment that is appropriate for the task at hand.
In Ohio, we don't have many professionals who handle this type of work.
Please keep in mind that monument company workers' expertise lies with handling newer granite monuments.
The older marble, limestone and sandstone monuments require more attention and greater carefulness due to the age and fragile nature of the monument.
Truly, there are more cemeteries in need of immediate gravestone care in Ohio, and throughout America, than there are people properly trained, experienced, who conduct their work skillfully and honor their commitments,
who always adhere to the Do No Harm best practices set forth by the NCPTT to handle their needs.
