The following is offered as a general guide to assist you in purchasing a memorial.

  • Have a friend or relative with you.
  • General price is determined by size, color, and polish.
  • The thickness of the stone is usually 6″ or 8″. Thickness does not determine quality–only price.
  • Lettering, personal design, delivery, tax and warranty should all be included in the price.
  • Ensure the design is personalized to commemorate you or your loved one – each life is unique and the monument should match.
  • Check the source of the granite – Smet Monuments only uses the highest qualities available from the best Domestic and International quarries, with 75% of our granites quarried in North America.
  • If it is more convenient for you to have this personal decision made in the comfort of your own home, ask a representative to visit you. Smet Monuments has local representatives that are able to meet with you at your convenience to help you design your memorial, provide advice, support, pricing, and answer any questions you may have.
  • All granite is not equal in quality. If a flaw or imperfection were ever to appear in the granite that you purchase, it should be stated in writing that it will be replaced at absolutely no cost to you or your successors – this is fully covered in Smet Monuments warranty which comes free of charge with each memorial we provide.
  • Ensure you are working with a company that respects you and understands your loss. Smet Monuments Representatives are highly trained and there to provide comfort and support – all while making a difficult process as positive and easy as possible.
  • Ensure you see a full-colour computer rendered sketch before approving a design to make sure it matches your expectations.
  • Ask about available options such as Laser Engraving, Granite Vases, Everlasting Memories Online Memorial, Porcelain Photos and more to help customize your memorial purchase.
