Restorations

​​Our ancestor’s monuments deserved to be preserved. ​It's quite common to see them with tall headstones, carved artwork and iron fences. They are a true example of past craftsmanship and are full of character and are a tribute to our past.

It's not uncommon for families to discover whilst tracing their family history a monument in need of some maintenance or restoration.

The memorial may have a leaning, fallen or broken headstone, concrete top which has broken in, or the whole structure leaning and sinking to one side or area. It may just require a clean down or a re-gild of the inscription.

It is important to have a stonemason inspect the monument and give you an honest appraisal..

​Refurbishment

​​Every monument in need of refurbishment is unique.

It may require a full demolition ​and rebuild with new piers and reinforced concrete foundation.
Other times we can jack up and replace a pier under a corner of base.

Bendigo Stonemasons can build replica headstones with the original artwork design​. Fences can be cleaned and painted
and missing parts replaced.

Additionally, broken concrete tops can be replaced along with granite stone chips ​without disruption to the memorial.

There is no better feeling than seeing an old memorial come back to its original beauty.
