Renovations & Repairs

SEO Friendly Title: Headstone and monument restorations, repairs and renovations based in Geelong

Leaving anything out in the elements, facing the harsh and changeable weather that we constantly face down under means that there is going to be inevitable wear and tear. But when it comes to old and dilapidated headstones, monuments and memorials, it is important that you stay on top of this damage. We all want to pay respect to our loved ones who have passed, and having a beautiful place we can visit to do this is important.

While the headstones we create in Geelong are made to last, with age every headstone will deteriorate to some extent – the severity will depend on where the headstone has been installed, how it was installed and the type of stone it was made from.

Here at The Headstone Company, we can work wonders with any headstone, monument or memorial. Whether you need to add extra letters, clean down a memorial, refurbish, repaint or re-gild lettering, we can help you to memorialize those you have lost.

For many graves, the headstone is the centre piece. Headstone restoration can give the grave a great new look and provide a beautiful and fitting tribute to someone that you have lost. If it isn’t a whole refurbishment that is needed, but maybe just a small crack or chip that needs fixing, then a headstone repair job can dramatically enhance the overall look of your loved one’s resting place.

For larger monuments that have been around for years, a monument restoration can make it shine and look like new. Similarly, a monument repair can fix the small inconsistencies that can arise, and ensure that the monument looks great for years to come.

Memorials are also prone to damage from the elements. A memorial restoration can really bring out the detail, and make it stand out for years and years. But if the memorial has a small crack or chip, then the integrity of it can be damaged. A memorial repair may be needed so it can withstand the elements and help you to pay respect to your loved ones in an elegant way.

For many people, visiting a headstone, monument or memorial that is dedicated to a loved one that has passed is an important part of their life. So it is crucial that these are kept in a clean and legible state, and free from cracks and chips.

Products: Monuments

SEO Friendly Title: Monuments made in Geelong, available Victoria-wide

A monument is a symbolic structure that can be used to commemorate an event or the life of an individual. A grave monument is typically much larger than a headstone and can take many forms, from a mausoleum to a religious statue.

The Headstone Company have custom monuments that are available in many different styles, with both single and double monuments on offer. At The Headstone Company, our in house team can help you design, engrave, mount and install the following types of monuments.

Single monuments

Single monuments are designed to provide a lasting marker for your loved one’s grave site. Single monuments come in a wide range of shapes and styles, and religious crosses and iconography are popular with this type of stone. Contemporary designs are also available, however. No matter which design you choose, it can be engraved with a personal message along with your loved one’s name and relevant dates.

Single monuments can be supplied in either granite or marble. Granite is more durable than marble which ensures your memorial will stand the test of time. However, marble can be polished to create a softer look, which some people feel is more appropriate for a memorial.

Double monuments made in-house in Geelong

Double monuments are designed to mark two burial plots next to each other. They are typically used to mark the graves of husband and wife but can be used to connect any two family members. Our skilled team of craftsmen can help you design and create a unique monument using marble or granite slabs, with engravings, etchings and inscriptions all done by hand to create a truly unique and beautiful monument.

Double monuments can be carved from a single piece of marble or granite, or two individual monuments can be created and mounted on a single base. There really is no restriction on the type of design you can create. We can show you previous memorials we have created to help you design a truly stunning and respectful memorial.

If you require a triple monument to commemorate the life of multiple family members, please contact us for more information. Triple monuments are possible but require careful planning and consideration to get an effective result.

Once you have settled on a design, the Headstone Company will organise the necessary cemetery trust permits and arrange for the stone to be installed. Because this type of memorial is heavier than other memorials, we mount the stone on solid foundations which ensures stability and protects against shrinkage.

As the leading supplier of graves monuments and headstones in Geelong, Victoria, The Headstone Company have the skills and the expertise to create a beautiful and bespoke monument for your loved one. Get in touch with us today and we’ll help you create a monument that they would be proud of.

Custom crypt memorial installed in Horsham as a lasting tribute

The Da Ros family in Horsham required a custom memorial crypt to be installed at the nearby cemetery.  This job required our team to pour a concrete slab to form the base of the crypt, we used exposed aggregate to create a long-lasting foundation including a concrete slab to be poured in which we used exposed aggregate.

We then delivered and installed an above ground crypt onto the concrete foundation.  We used a combination of emerald pearl, black granite along with gold lettering in this design to create a timeless and elegant place for this family to pay tribute for decades to come.

To create a smooth and shiny finish we used sandblasting, this technique polished off the pearl in the centre enabling us to have an appealing finish and make a feature of the centre cross. From the design process through to the creation of the crypt and the finishing touches, we ensured that we met the wishes of the family and used our skills to bring them a fitting resting place for their loved one.

When it comes to above ground crypts and custom memorials in Horsham, the team at The Headstone Company will create a distinguished and fitting memorial that gives your loved one the ultimate tribute.

Specially made curved headstone for Geelong cemetery

The team at The Headstone Company recently created a unique, curved headstone in Geelong, specially created to sit on top of a curved concrete beam. This headstone was inscribed with a special message from both the late man’s wife and children, with the use of classic gold lettering and included a special photo of their loved one.

The client wanted a simple, yet classy memorial for her late husband. The headstone and base was curved to fit the concrete beam creating an elegant and sophisticated memorial. The curvature of the headstone and simple design means that the memorial is spacious and not over crowded with inscriptions.
