received his training in Indiana from one of the most recognized authorities
in cemetery preservation in the mid-west.  We provide cemetery
maintenance and repair for all of Michigan including the Upper Peninsula.  

Over time, headstones can become victims of their surroundings. They can
become covered by dirt and a growth called
"Lichen" which can make it
difficult to read and is very unsightly when you are visiting your loved ones.  

Cemetery maintenance can also be very hard on headstones and other
grave markers.  Lawn mowers sometimes hit them and break them or
knock them over and they will eventually become covered in grass..

We can repair most Headstones, Obelisks and Monuments that have been
damaged.  We pride ourselves in doing quality work at a affordable price.

Please contact us via email or phone to set up a free walk through
inspection.  Within 24 hrs we will send you an estimate for repairs.
