Aheadstone is the most traditional marker used to commemorate the life of a loved one. For centuries headstones, sometimes called tombstones or gravestones, have marked stood as a lasting reminder of the legacy left by a family member. As eternal markers, headstones are often carved from the most durable stones. At Woodside Granite, we use granite as the stone of choice for a simple reason: it lasts longer than any other stone used in cemeteries.
A walk through local cemeteries in Rochester is enough to see why granite has become the stone now used more than any other. Older marble or limestone headstones show serious weathering, often leaving the stones illegible or broken. Woodside Granite has the experience to produce high quality finishes on a wide variety of colored stones, engraved with a precision and technique that will last for centuries to come.
With almost endless design choices, we can provide you with the perfect balance of color, style, and messaging. We even have the ability to make photo-realistic images etched permanently into your stone, for a special touch that is sure to stand out in any setting.
