Rome Monument Inc. | North America's Highest Quality Monument, Headstone And Mausoleum Builder


In this video, you’ll learn how Rome Monument Inc. designs and builds the highest quality headstones, monuments, and mausoleums in the USA. Rome specializes in 100% personalized gravestones, with our customers directing us to build whatever their hearts desire. Unlike other monument companies, cemeteries and funeral homes, Rome does not offer you a limited number of cookie cutter options that you select from a design brochure or online form. You tell us your design idea, we build it! 

In this Rome Monument Inc. corporate profile video, you’ll see some of the monuments that families had us build that you won’t find anywhere else. That’s because our personalized memorials are built according to your individual requirements, desires and specifications. This means the shape, size, granite color, etchings, engravings and funerary artwork are one-of-a-kind and totally unique to your family. In addition, each personalized headstone design is individualized with exclusive adornments and special touches to meet the needs and situation of each family. We are frequently called on to design memorials that use symbols, designs and imagery as well as custom artwork created by the families themselves with the help of our monument designers. Rome designs and fabricates cemetery monuments that reflect the passions of the people memorialized: a hobby, their faith, their religion, sports, career, military service, outdoor scenes, flowers, angels, hearts - even a car or motorcycle. The choice is yours.
In this video produced by Rome Monument, Inc. in April of 2020, you’ll see our in-house certified master carvers and craftspeople sculpting, hand etching, lettering, polishing and sandblasting at the Rome Monuments Works Artisan Center in Monaca, Pennsylvania. Next door to the monument production facility is our granite monument and quarried rock warehouse, 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.
