How To Select High Quality Granite For Your Mausoleum
[The Best Granite Quarries For Your Mausoleum]
TRANSCRIPT OF THE VIDEO NARRATION:
From top to bottom, the best mausoleums are made with granite. That’s why it’s important to have high quality granite like this one, so it will look beautiful and last a long, long time.
This mausoleum was made with lesser quality granite, probably from a quarry overseas…maybe China. Already it’s falling apart.
In this Chapter of The Essential Buyers’ Guide to Private Family Mausoleums, I’m going to show you how to select high quality granite from the best granite quarries for your mausoleum
Mausoleum construction starts at the quarry, where high grade granite is extracted from the earth and sent to mills to be cut and processed. High grade granite is ideal for use in the construction of mausoleums because it has a high quartz content, making it hard, strong, and durable. It’s non-porous to resist moisture getting into the walls and weakening and deteriorating the structure.
Quality granite resists cracking and crumbling by dampening vibrations from any ground movement. It has a smooth, even surface with no cracks, pits, or bumps.
And, of course, it’s more beautiful, with unique colors and vibrant patterns.
Cheap granite, on the other hand, will only diminish your valuable investment.
Cheap granite can come from overseas quarries in places like China…or even offered by some disreputable companies here in the United States.
It has a lower quartz content, making it softer and less durable.
The granite can be porous, letting damaging moisture in.
It often has uneven, cracked, pitted surfaces.
And its appearance is usually uninteresting and dull.
Before you purchase a mausoleum, find out where the construction company gets its granite. Because if the granite isn’t of the highest quality, your mausoleum won’t be either.
If you want to learn more about the different types of granite used in mausoleum construction, just call a mausoleum professional at Rome Monument, and they’ll be happy to answer any question you have.
