Monuments and markers range in price depending on how simple or elaborate the design is. Prices can range from under $1000 for flat markers and simple upright monuments to upwards of $5000 for more elaborate monuments.
Several factors will influence the cost of your monument including the material, size and intricacies of design, the finish, as well as the service provided by the monument builder.
Today, very solid foundations are used below upright monuments so there is very little problem with memorials tipping or shifting. In Ontario, cemeteries collect a one time Care and Maintenance fee that provides funds for keeping memorials in safe condition.
It is important to remember that although foundations are only installed in the good weather, winter is an excellent time to order a memorial. You can be assured of good value and prompt installation in the spring.
