We ship and install our memorials, monuments, and mausoleums nationwide throughout the continental United States (lower 48).

Normally, the Dio + Co. team will deliver and install the monuments and mausoleums that we design and build at no charge. In a small percentage of situations, the cemetery staff or memorial park maintenance crew will perform the installation and setting process. Regardless of cemetery guidelines, we guide you throughout the entire process.

How much does it cost to design, build, and install a memorial?

Our pricing guide for memorials, monuments, and mausoleums varies depending on the scale of the project. Prices generally include a completely custom design & build, shipping, delivery, and installation by Dio + Co.

How long does it take to design and deliver my memorial?

The timeframe varies based on many factors. It can take 12 weeks to 12 months, depending on the complexity of the memorial's customization, where the family has us source the granite, and even the weather. If you are thinking about purchasing a memorial, read our tips on planning ahead.

Do monuments come with a warranty?

We offer monuments with and without warranties. Dio + Co. offers a money-back guarantee for every luxury memorial we craft against defects in material or workmanship. Please reach out to us at 878-201-3578 to learn how we back our services.

Are there any limitations to customization and/or installation?

Yes. While we can fully customize and personalize your memorials, every memorial must conform to the cemetery's rules and regulations. Common cemetery rules can pertain to (but are not limited to):

  • Size
  • Style
  • Material
  • Color of the material
  • Finishes of the material
  • Religious symbol guidelines

What is the perfect size memorial?

A “standard” memorial size does not exist. We encourage all of our families to measure existing memorials in the cemetery prior to selecting a size so that they are viewing the memorial in its natural setting. Memorials look larger in our displays than they will look outside once permanently set. We closely guide our clients on the best size to fit their needs.

What color and quality is the granite?

The quarries we rely on in the United States and Canada are rigorously selected for the highest durability and richest color.

Granite comes in different varieties, colors, and grades. It is sourced from domestic and international quarries, each with unique characteristics and variations in durability and color. Different quarries yield different mineral compositions in the stones, accounting for variations in durability and color, as well.

Granite’s “grade,” or quality, is a measure of the material’s durability, density, structural integrity, consistency, suitability for cutting, crafting, and finishing. More durable varieties of granite are best for crafting memorials. Higher grade, highly durable, highly consistent granite varieties are typically higher priced because they will not absorb moisture, will not discolor, and will not fade.

More common and readily available granite varieties and colors are usually priced lower (because there is more supply). Harder-to-find granite varieties and colors are often priced higher. Shipping distance also affects the price.

What is the style and texture of the memorial?

Our in-house artists can create any style of memorial you desire. The more complex the shape of the memorial, the higher the cost. In addition, the shape of the memorial can be finished in many different textures such as polished, tiffany, sawn, rustic, blued, etc. This, too, can impact the cost of the memorial.

What is the craftsmanship level?

The range of custom memorial and headstone design options is limited only by your imagination and your cemetery’s limitations and rules. Most artistic designs can be carved into granite or crafted into bronze. Granite carving processes can be simple or complex, one-dimensional or multidimensional. Higher-priced monuments usually include complex artwork, portraits, laser etching, hand etching, porcelain portraits, artistic carving, detailed imagery, and custom designs.

What does a mausoleum cost?

Our pricing guide for mausoleums vary depending on the scale of the project. Prices generally include a completely custom-designed, built, shipped, and delivered memorial. We also offer our installation services nationally for mausoleums and higher-end memorials. Prices can range from $15,000.00 to $350,000.00+ for a completely custom and personalized mausoleum from Dio + Co.
