[From Design Concept To Cemetery Installation]
TRANSCRIPT OF THE VIDEO NARRATION:
In previous chapters of The Essential Buyers’ Guide to Private Family Mausoleums, we looked at factors you should look for when buying a mausoleum that will withstand the test of time. Things like styles of mausoleums, types, the importance of preplanning, the importance of quality materials and craftsmanship. We also looked at how different types of mausoleums are priced.
In this chapter of The Essential Buyers’ Guide to Private Family Mausoleums we’re going to an actual mausoleum construction company to see how to plan, design and build your family mausoleum [from design concept to cemetery installation].
I’m here at the Rome Monument Headquarters just outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This is where the whole process gets started.
Rome Monument is a family-owned company now in its fourth generation. When people call to inquire about a mausoleum, Rome takes the time to educate them on every aspect of the design and what their options are. After all, it’s a big investment on your part.
Rome’s mausoleum artists come up with an initial CAD design which they go over with client and make any changes and adjustments they need made.
When the final design is approved, they begin the process of building the mausoleum.
The Rome warehouse has hundreds of headstones and mausoleums for you to choose from for your headstone or mausoleum. It’s one of the largest in America. Rome gets its beautiful, high quality granite from the most reputable quarries in the United States, Canada, and around the world. Every color, pattern and texture to choose from for your own custom designed mausoleum. From here, the granite goes next door to the Rome production facility.
This is where Rome Monument constructs their mausoleums. It’s called the Rome Works Artisan Center. Right here, hundreds of headstones and mausoleums are designed and constructed each year, each one of the highest quality, using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.
This is the Rome mausoleum production facility where certified master carvers and craftspeople cut the granite to size, sculpt, hand etch, letter, polish and sandblast to achieve a perfect mausoleum slab or accessory.
When it’s complete, they either store the mausoleum in the warehouse for future assembly at the cemetery, or they deliver it to a cemetery anywhere in the continental United States.
The foundation for the mausoleum is laid in advance of the setting. The base course is laid out, the side walls positioned, and the roof is placed on top. Any joint work is performed to seal the areas between the slabs to keep the mausoleum watertight. Any adornments are added. And the landscaping completed.
