Dio + Co. creates custom and elegant mausoleums and columbariums for your beloved ones, delivered and installed in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
A mausoleum is a cemetery building containing a grave, tomb, or burial chamber that holds a loved one. We offer a range of options to suit your needs, including single crypt, double crypt, private family multiple crypt, chapel walk-in, garden/outdoor or sepulcher, classically-styled walk-in, vestibule, cemetery-owned outdoor, and cemetery-owned outdoor walk-in mausoleums.
For those who require more space, we also offer larger mausoleums, complete with options like a chapel or niche for cremated remains. You can customize the shape, style, and color, as well as the adornments that will accompany your structure to accompany any number of graves.
Completely Custom Single, Double, and Multi Crypt Mausoleums
Multi Crypt Mausoleum
At Dio + Co., we believe that creating a mausoleum is not just about constructing a building to store physical remains; it's about preserving one's legacy and marking the memories and milestones of a lifetime. Our design process is informed by the rich experiences that shape us: from the monumental—a first job, a wedding day—to the everyday moments that define us.
When you reflect on your life, what memories come to mind? What moments do you cherish the most? We care about our clients and help them translate their lifetime of experiences into a beautiful and lasting monument, one that tells the story of not just one life but an entire family's legacy.
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 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 determine 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
