Memorials are as varied as the individuals they memorialize. We can sit together in our Family Design Center and create the monument that is right for your memories. We guide you step-by-step through the design process, and with the aid of computers we can let you see your design options full-size before we commit them to stone. Once the memorial design is chosen, we will preserve your memories with every bit of our renowned quality and a strict attention to detail. Rome Care-Crafted monuments set the standard for the industry. Carefully selected from only the finest granite quarried in North America, Europe, Africa, and India, our stones are painstakingly engraved to your specifications. Then, our expert engraver and sculptor add their highly skilled artwork to further personalize the stone. The entire monument making process is done in-house so that we can ensure it is carried out, from start to finish, with the highest level of quality and care. It's the way our father has done it for fifty years, and it's the way we'll be doing it years from now. The members of our community have learned they can count on the Rome family, and we've learned how to best serve their needs. That's what being a family business means to us. And that's the reason Rome has become the most trusted name in personalized cemetery memorials and monuments.

Learn About the Monument Ordering Process at a Showroom

  • Usually, in most cases, specific prices for the design and construction of a memorial and monument are determined through the design process which is conducted at a showroom.
  • This design process is essentially a dialogue between our customer and one of our memorialists. This process enables our memorialist to define what what the customer want in terms of the specific details of the monument design.
  • We will help you choose a granite color, granite quality, memorial size, carving and engraving options and memorial accessories.
  • Once the details of the monument design are formulated and agreed upon, we will provide you with a specific price.
  • This process often starts with an online inquiry, perhaps a few emails back and forth, maybe a few phone calls and eventually proceeds to a design meeting at one of our local showrooms. Most prices are finalized after one or more design meetings at one of our showrooms in the Pittsburgh area.

To request an in-home monument or headstone design consultation meeting from Rome Monument call 724-770-0100. One of our memorialists will be happy to talk with you about your ideas and plans for a memorial in the privacy of your own home.

Rome Monument understand the difficulties that some of our customers will endure if they are required to visit one of our showrooms in the Pittsburgh area to discuss a monument design or to place an order. As expected, many of our customers are elderly and either can not drive or don't have a convenient method for traveling to a showroom. Rome Monument offers interested parties headstone and gravestone design consultations in the privacy of their own residence whenever possible. No-obligation, in-home gravestone design consultations are available locally in the Pittsburgh Tri-State area. During these design consultations, a memorialist will explain gravemarker styles and types, granite monument colors, monument sizes, engraving options, memorial accessories and the delivery and installation process. Payments can also be processed during in-home design consultations.  In some cases, our memorialists will also travel to visit with a potential customer at their workplace to make the process more convenient. Some of our clients are just too darn busy with their career and family responsibilities to visit a showroom. Just call us and we will talk with you to see what can be arranged.
