Should we wait for a length of time after a death has happened before ordering a memorial?
You don’t have to. Normally it can take anywhere from 28 days to half a year to deliver and produce your memorial. This is because we want to make sure that this memorial lasts forever in the eyes of the family. Most local cemeteries will have the ground and foundation ready for the monument.
How long does it take to finish a memorial?
Carlson Memorials can normally expect to complete your memorial in 4 to 6 weeks after the artwork has been approved. Also worth noting that custom monuments can take up to 180 days to deliver and complete. We have to custom order the materials and make sure we meet our standards and your standards. Winter can hinder our schedule for deliveries.
Should I buy a memorial in advance?
Monuments are here to represent the individual that they are made for. This way you can choose how you or your loved one wants to be remembered. Decision making in advance is suggested because the decisions we make in grief are harder to decide.
Materials used to build a Monument in Boulder?
In Today’s world, most monument builders use either granite, marble, or bronze. Carlson Memorial suggest granite as it is arguably the most durable of the three.
How long will the memorial last?
It all depends on the type of material that is used. For instance, a marble material will break down faster than granite will as granite is an igneous rock.
Do you guys do offer special design?
Yes, at Carlson Memorial’s we can fabricate any design and features of your choosing. However, the more complicated the project, the more it will cost.
Do all cemeteries allow Monument memorials?
No, every cemetery has their own rules and regulations. In some cases, monument memorials are banned from being in a cemetery. To be safe, we recommend that you check with the cemetery. This allows you to know what type of memorials you can use at their cemetery up front.
How much does a memorial monument cost?
The cost of a monument will depend on material, size, finish, and if you decided to add any extra items such as ceramic photos. Every memorial monument is unique, so we feel like we can not give a definitive answer. We can help give you a more specific price by asking some questions.
