Private family mausoleums are above-ground structures used for the permanent interment of an individual, couple, or family. A beautiful free-standing black granite mausoleum by Rome Monument is the ultimate architectural statement to a family's legacy and heritage. If you are considering buying a unique custom private family black granite mausoleum, a personal one-crypt mausoleum (built for a single individual), a companion mausoleum (built for two people), or a customized private above ground burial vault, view our Design Gallery or contact Vince Dioguardi or Chris Morgan at Rome Monument to discuss your design ideas.

The Rome Monument Mausoleum Advantage

Rome Monument is a mausoleum construction company, mausoleum contractor and mausoleum builder with over 80 years of experience as a design/builder of private family mausoleums for cemeteries and memorial parks.  Our mausoleum construction standards are rigorous and meticulous.

  • Unlike most other black granite mausoleum manufacturers who source their black granite from overseas, our black granite is sourced exclusively from reputable quarries in the United States and Canada for mausoleums that will last far longer and are guaranteed not to fade over time.

  • While other companies have their black granite mausoleums built overseas, ours are built in the USA, ensuring quality and craftsmanship that is unmatched in the industry.

  • Other companies have their mausoleums assembled overseas as well. Rome has the expertise and experience to assemble our mausoleums at our own facility, at your cemetery, or on private property, and install them at your place of choice anywhere in the continental USA.

  • And unlike most other mausoleum manufacturers, we offer a warranty that comes with every building, extends to all the purchaser’s heirs in perpetuity - the only warranty that can make that claim that because it is backed by an independent trust fund.

Prices for a high quality black granite mausoleum from Rome Monument start at $25,000. You can probably get a mausoleum for half that price when the company you buy from uses overseas resources to build their mausoleums. However, many consider black granite more beautiful than other types of granite and are willing to pay more for a black granite mausoleum that is built better, looks nicer, and won’t fade or deteriorate over time. If you want to know how much a mausoleum costs or want to buy a private family mausoleum, call 724-770-0100 and ask for Vince Dioguardi.
