Polchinski Monuments

  • Polchinski Memorials designs cemetery monuments according to client’s choice of stones.

  • They are different options available for stones.


  • Granite is used because it resists weathering and abrasion;

  • It bears significant weight and can be polished to a shine.


  • Marble comes in a vast variety of colors with intricate patterns.

  • It is strong, aesthetic and appealing.

  • However, the inscriptions on marble tombstones are likely to fade due to environmental factors, especially acid rains.


  • Limestone is soft, easily cut and carved and widely available

  • It is particularly susceptible to weathering and will erode when exposed to water and wind.


  • Sandstone, like limestone, is a sedimentary rock.

  • Sandstone is another durable material appropriate for making gravestones because it is easy to carve.


  • Slate, too, is often used for constructing tombstones.

  • It is a tough and dense material with a pleasing texture but tends to be slightly porous and susceptible to delamination.
