Quality Materials Make all of the difference

Quality Granite

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

Base Course

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.

Side Walls

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

What to consider before hiring a company to build a mausoleum - Brochure Cover

High Quality Mausoleum Construction

We utilize only the finest materials and superior craftsmanship to ensure the accurate construction of your bespoke mausoleum. Our mausoleums are built with high-quality granite, side walls, base course, joints, roof, and foundation, which will last for centuries, even millennia!


Mausoleums built with inferior design, materials, and craftsmanship won't last as long and can even start to deteriorate in just a few years. We only source granite from trusted quarries in North America, and our mausoleums are designed and assembled in Rochester, Pennsylvania.


Founded in 1934, Dio + Co. was started by Michael Dioguardi, a skilled stone cutter from Rome, Italy. Since then, four generations of mausoleum builders have designed luxury resting memorials. While technology has evolved significantly over time, we pride ourselves on being exquisite mausoleum sculptors who craft custom memorials of unparalleled artistry.


For a mausoleum that endures for generations, settle for nothing less than the best quality.

What Can Be Personalized

Dio + Co. specializes in carving, engraving, etching, and sculpting personalized artwork in the design of each mausoleum we build to distinguish your mausoleum in a crowded cemetery.


Families frequently ask us to design mausoleums that use symbols, designs, and imagery that have special significance to the deceased, as well as custom artwork created by the families themselves with the help of our designers.


A mausoleum's size and shape make it stand out more than anything else in a cemetery. Use your imagination and think of a shape that no one else has. Then, we’ll build it just for you! From headstone customization to unique stained glass windows, we can help.


Common cemetery memorials include upright monuments, flat (flush or lawn level) markers, slant-shaped monuments, bevel-shaped monuments, statues, memorial benches, and mausoleums. Make them uncommon with a personalized design from Dio + Co.


Mausoleum accessories are added to a memorial to make it more functional, versatile, or aesthetically pleasing. These custom-designed accessories can be added during construction or to an already-existing mausoleum. Examples include urns, granite inserts, bronze plaques, bronze accessories, and bases.
