Quality Materials Make all of the difference
The construction of a mausoleum begins at the quarry, where granite is extracted from the earth and sent to mills to be cut and processed. High-grade granite is ideal for use in the construction of mausoleums because of its strength, durability, and beauty.
The foundation of a mausoleum provides solid support for the base course and mausoleum structure. Without a good foundation, the mausoleum will absorb water and can shift with the ground, causing cracking and tilting.
- From reputable quarries in U.S. & Canada
- Hard, strong, durable
- Non-porous; moisture-resistant
- Limits vibrations
- Smooth, even surface; no cracks, pits, or bumps
- Beautiful, unique colors and vibrant patterns
- Made With 100% High-Grade Concrete
- Single Layer, Several Feet Deep
- Spread Under Entire Footprint Of Mausoleum
- Prevents Water From Entering
- Prevents Cracking And Tilting Of Structure
- Wire Mesh Keeps Concrete Intact
The base course is a large slab of granite that rests on the concrete foundation, supporting the weight of the mausoleum and keeping it off the wet, unstable ground.
The side walls of a mausoleum need to have the strength and integrity to support the whole structure and, at the same time, look beautiful. The thickness and quality of the granite, along with the number of joints needed are some of the factors that go into determining the mausoleum’s durability and safety
- Single Slab Of Thick Granite For Strength And Durability
- Prevents Moisture From Entering Crypt
- Extends Beyond The Side Walls To Prevent Contact With Wet Ground
- Multiple Base Courses For Larger Mausoleums Provide More Stability And Less Flood Damage
- Up To 8” Thick High-Grade Granite For Maximum Strength
- Large Slabs Minimize The Number Of Joints, Which Strengthens The Structure
- Solid Granite With No Fillers—Lasts Longer, Won’t Deteriorate
- Walls Are Off The Ground & Supported By The Base Course So That They Do Not Absorb Moisture From Ground
The slabs of granite on a mausoleum are separated by the joints. They keep water out and provide a cushion that prevents the granite from cracking. A good joint requires high-quality adhesive and joint compound. The thinner the joint the better. With high-quality joints, the mausoleum will stay dry and last a long, long time.
The roof of a mausoleum protects the crypt from the elements. The thickness of the granite, quality of the granite, number of joints needed, and ability to drain water are critical elements that factor into a mausoleum’s longevity.
- Smaller Joint Gaps – 1/8” Or Less
- Joints Never Touch The Ground
- Won’t Absorb Moisture Or Deteriorate
- High-Quality Sealant
- Fewer Joints Required Due To Larger Granite Slabs
- Up To 12” Thick For Maximum Strength
- Large Slabs Require Fewer Joints
- Solid Granite; No Fillers...Lasts Longer With No Deterioration
- Drainage System Engineered Into Design
High Quality Mausoleum Construction
At Dio + Co, we use only the finest materials and craftsmanship to construct your custom mausoleum to the highest standards of quality. Our mausoleums are built to last for centuries or even millennia, using high-quality granite, base course, side walls, joints, roof, and foundation.
Mausoleums that are not well-made due to inferior design, materials, and craftsmanship, are at risk of deteriorating within a short span of years. We prioritize the longevity of our mausoleums and only use granite sourced from North American quarries. Our craftsmen design and assemble each mausoleum with precision and care in Rochester, Pennsylvania.
Dio + Co. has a rich history spanning back to 1934, when a skilled stone cutter from Rome, Italy, named Michael Dioguardi, founded the company. Four generations of mausoleum builders have since taken the reins, designing luxury resting memorials for countless families. Despite the dramatic changes in technology over the years, we still pride ourselves on our roots as sculptors of exquisite custom-carved mausoleums.
For a mausoleum that will withstand the test of time, don't settle for anything less than the absolute best. Quality craftsmanship and meticulous construction will ensure that your final resting place remains a cherished monument for generations to come.
