In this video, Rome Monument shows you how to tell the difference between high quality mausoleum and low quality mausoleum design, construction and installation. In addition to a superior, professional design, the quality of a mausoleum depends on such factors as the reputation of the granite quarry, the experience of the mausoleum installation personnel, the quality of the granite, foundation, base course, side walls, roof and joints, among other construction elements.

Monument and Mausoleum Installation Fees

In a small percentage of situations, the cemetery staff or memorial park maintenance crew will perform the installation and setting process. Cemeteries normally charge an installation fee for this service.


Cemetery Monument and Memorial Rules, Regulations, Standards, Policies and Guidelines

Because we have been delivering and setting (installing) grave markers in cemeteries since 1934, Rome Monument has become extremely knowledgeable regarding the types of monuments and memorials that are permitted in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and Western Pennsylvania. Most cemeteries in our delivery and installation area, (Pittsburgh Tri-State Area, Southwestern Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio and Northern West Virginia) regulate the types of headstones placed on gravesites within their property. These standards, policies and guidelines designate the types of materials that can be used for the construction of a monument. The two most common materials permitted are bronze and granite.  Rome Monuments is reknowned for the quality of the bronze and granite gravestones we design and make.

Additionally certain size restrictions may apply such as the length, width and height of the monument. Rome Monument will be absolutely sure of a customer's cemetery regulations before the monument production process begins.  We are dilegent about acquiring this vital information before we finalize a purchase agreement with a client for a monument order. Monument types are also regulated by many cemeteries with whom we work. Some cemeteries only permit flat bronze markers. Others permit both flat grave markers and upright monuments. In some cases, graveyards, memorial parks and burial parks permit flat memorials, raised and upright memorials, slant memorials and bevel memorials. Some cemeteries also allow mausoleum type memorials.

If you or your family have already purchased cemetery space, gravesites (s) or burial plots, you will certainly be limited to a degree in what type of memorial or monument will be allowed. However, this is nothing to worry about. The experienced memorialists at all Rome Monument showrooms can be very creative in designing a monument to fit the alloted space. If you don't know what rules and regulations apply, we probably already know, and if not, will contact the cemetery to clarify and confirm.


An Overview of Cemetery Documentation Required Before Monument Delivery and Installation Can Commence

Rome Monuments works with hundreds of cemeteries in the Pittsburgh area. Before a monument or memorial is delivered and installed, we take care of the cemetery paperwork.  We routinely work with, and on behalf of, our customers to make sure that all of documents required by a cemetery have been completed and submitted to the cemetery management office befoe a gravestone is placed in the cemetery.  We are very experienced in the process of submitting headstone specifications, and when required, submitting drawings (often CAD drawings) to our customer's cemetery administration office. When applicable we will contact the cemetery in advance to let them know that we will be delivering and installing a monument for someone who purchased a burial plot or grave space in their cemtery.  Cemeteries generally require the burial plot owner or lot owner to sign some type of documentation authorizing the delivery and installation of a monument at the gravesites they purchased.

Consumer Rights Regarding Cemetery Monument Purchases, Delivery and Installation

It is important for consumers, and in particular our potentional customers and current customers, to know their rights regarding cemetery monument purchases and delivery and installation. It is not an uncommon practice for cemetery representatives to discourage their burial plot and grave space customers from working with Rome Monument for a number of reasons. These discouragement practices are summarized below.

  • "You Can Only By Monuments From the Cemetery" Discouragement Practice:
    Don't be put off if the cemetery representatives that you are engaged with now, or may be in the future, discourage you from purchasing a monument from Rome Monument. In almost all cases, you should be permitted to order a monument or memorial from a company other than the cemetery.  If you do find yourself in this situation, please call 724-770-0100 to let us know your concerns and the details of your specific situation. We are here to help. We will make sure that the monument we build conforms to their requirements before we deliver and install it at your family's gravesite.
     
  • Additional Fee Discouragement Practice:
    Cemetery representatives may state to plot owners that additional fees will be incurred if you purchase a memorial from Rome Monument. Don't worry about this fee, just call us at 724-770-0100 to let us know what happened and what was said. We will help you work out this process in an agreeable manner to all parties involved.
     
  • Responsibility for Damage Discouragement Practice:
    Cemetery representatives may discourage plot owners from purchasing a monument or memorial from Rome Monument by worrying them about the "responsibility for damage" to the headstone or gravestone. If the cemetery manager or salesman explains that the cemetery is not responsible for any damages that occur during delivery or assembly if another company is providing this service, well of course.  If Rome Monument is delivering and installing the monument, as we do in almost all cases, then we are resonsible and we assume this responsibility gladly.
     
  • Monument Quality Discouragement Practice:
    If a cemetery representative tries to discourage you from commissioning a monument or memorial from Rome Monument because of the quality of our work just call us at 724-770-0100 or click here to contact us. We can set your concerns aside very quickly over the phone or invite you to one of our showrooms to talk with us and see for yourself the quality of our work by viewing actual headstones and gravemarkers that we have designed and built.  The quality of our work is unsurpassed in the Pittsburgh Tri-State area. In many cases, cemeteries who sells headstones actually contract with Rome Monument to build these monuments.
