Dio + Co. specializes in crafting completely custom mausoleums and columbariums. These structures are designed from the ground up with a touch of elegance and can be used for burial purposes, tomb placement, or cemetery niches.
A mausoleum is a free-standing cemetery building that contains the tomb, grave, or burial chamber of your loved one. This above-ground burial can contain a single grave or several graves.
Our custom mausoleums can be delivered and installed at a location of your choice in Arlington, Virginia. The Arlington National Cemetery is located in Arlington County. This national memorial park is considered one of the most luxurious burial places in the country.
Our Arlington-based mausoleum services provide a range of options such as garden/outdoor or sepulcher, private family multiple crypts, single crypts, double crypts, cemetery-owned outdoor, cemetery-owned outdoor walk-in, classically-styled walk-in, vestibule, and chapel walk-in mausoleums.
Our larger mausoleums can also include add-ons, such as a chapel or niche for cremation remains, catering to any size and number of graves. We offer a plethora of customization options, from the shape and style to the adornments and color scheme of your choice. We offer complete flexibility to ensure that your unique taste is fully realized in our work.
Completely Custom Single, Double, and Multi Crypt Mausoleums
Multi Crypt Mausoleum
We experience so much in our lives that can guide the design process of custom memorials. The big moments that shape us—a first job, graduation, getting married, having children, and seeing children grow up. These are the types of memories that first come to mind when we reflect on our lives. At Dio + Co., we care for every client and use our extensive experience to help them create a lasting tribute with a custom memorial headstone that honors their life.
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 constructing a mausoleum because of its strength, durability, and beauty.
The foundation of a mausoleum provides solid support for the base course and overall structure. Without a good foundation, the structure 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
