Headstone Cleaning & Repair

Memorials in need of repair can be restored to their original distinction using our professional restoration services. We work with families and individuals, as well as cemetery operators and managers to provide services including cleaning, resetting, and foundation replacement.

 

Design

There are four main standard shapes as pictured below. In addition to these standard economical options, there are many different custom shapes and carved stones available to order, for example Boulders, Crosses, Hearts and Angels.
Every cemetery has different rules and regulations regarding design. A walk through your local cemetery can provide inspiration for the design of your memorial stone. Chardy Memorials can create almost any design within cemetery guidelines and your budget. Using our specialized design software, we will assist you in the process of designing a unique memorial for your loved one.
We are happy to meet with you in person in our office in Kennett Square, or we can provide services from start to finish entirely remote.
