Restoration of headstones in South Otago
Our monumental masons are capable of both historic and modern restoration, large and small including public monuments, war memorials and family headstones affected by age or sadly defaced by graffiti or vandalism. We can also colour headstone inscriptions, stabilise leaning monuments and undertake general cleaning.
Choose a Monumental Mason for any restoration work
Restoration of an old grave or headstone is a task that should only be handled by a reputable Monumental Mason, preferably a member of the NZ Master Monumental Masons Association Inc. As they work under strict government regulations, ensuring any restorations are up to current safety standards and compassionate to the site.
Ensure the safety of gravesites & monuments
Cracked concrete and its collapse are not only unsightly but an indication that the structure of the grave has become unstable and subsequently unsafe. McBrides Monumental Services can repair this concrete, making the site safe again.
Repinning headstones & monuments
Many older headstones are much higher than is commonly erected nowadays and because they are extremely heavy, they should not be disturbed without the correct people and equipment being present. McBrides Monumental can complete repinning on leaning and fallen stones. We can also discuss earthquake safety guidelines and ways monuments can be structurally supported.
Monumental Restoration in South Otago & Clutha District
Older headstones are usually made of marble or granite and once they begin to lean, it is only a matter of time before they eventually fall. We suggest that you contact us to discuss your options on the restoration of these sites well before they fall and cause additional, sometimes irreparable damage.
Cleaning & re-lettering headstones
The more recent headstones and gravesites don't present the same hazards and restoration is usually much simpler. Often just a cleaning by professionals and re-lettering will revitalise such a site. We offer refurbishments, professional cleaning and maintenance, along with new headstones.
