The Importance of Headstone Maintenance

Why is headstone maintenance important?

The primary reason for headstone maintenance is to preserve the aesthetic of the greave. We take the pressure and stress off you so that you never have to worry about inspecting and/or repairing the headstone. Our Headstone Maintenance service keeps the grave site looking neat & tidy throughout the year. Additionally, regular maintenance minimises the risk of problems in the future. By definition, the stone that headstones are made of need to be regularly inspected to ensure that the integrity of the headstone is maintained. We inspect and repair the gravestones so that they remain structurally sound throughout the year. Moreover, regular grave maintenance makes the grave secure and free from any hazards such as exposed tree roots. Above all, regular headstone maintenance is a sign of respect for the loved one. Our team of experts are highly-trained, respectful and treats your loved one’s grave with the up-most respect. Although our loved ones may not be with us, by regularly maintaining graves, we are providing them with the respect they deserve.

What is Included in Our Maintenance service:

What is involved in our Headstone Maintenance services?

Our team of respectful gravestone maintenance technicians clean the graves, replace the gravel chippings, fresh flower planting and bedding clay (on request), repair of the structural floor (if necessary), headstone lettering repainting, tending to any plants and weeds. We treat each grave like they are a loved one of our own, after our service we do a final inspection & can send photos of the final walk around for your peace-of-mind. Whether you are on our regular headstone maintenance round, or you simply want a once-off regular maintenance service, we always provide expert & professional attention.
