Westminster Family Crypts can be constructed with crypts positioned end-to-end or side-by-side. The Westminster Family Crypt pictured here has four total crypts, two side-by-side and two on top. This custom mausoleum includes diamond etching and a black granite bench which allows family and friends to sit while they visit. These crypts can be personalized and customized to your preference. Our master designers include your vision and wish list to make sure you and your family are happy with the final product.
There's so much we experience in our lives that help guide the monument design process. There are the big moments that shape us—graduation, a first job, falling in love and getting married, having children, seeing children grow into adulthood. When we reflect on our lives, it's these memories and milestones that may come to mind first. At Dio+Co., we care about our clients and pride ourselves in helping them leave behind a symbol of their legacy and that of their entire family.
Quality Materials Makes all of the difference
We use high-quality materials during construction. You can be sure your mausoleum will be built to stand the test of time.
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
