The Forest Granite Works deals strictly with granite because it is a very high quality mineral, lasts forever, and is much less susceptible to mold, mildew, and general weathering than other types of rock. Our granite comes in an array of sizes, shapes, and colors. The least expensive is the Enterprise Blue - a blue/gray color - whereas the most expensive is the Royal Black. As a general rule, darker and larger markers are more expensive.
Marker prices and sizes range from just a few hundred dollars for small bevel markers to a few thousand dollars for larger monument markers. We are one of the few monument companies that are proud to say that there are no "hidden costs" to our markers. Prices of all of our monuments include all engraving on the front, a concrete foundation, transportation, and installation. With the exception of requested extras, the price you see on our price list, is the price you pay.
If an order is placed in early to mid-summer, delivery time is usually between 8 to 10 weeks. If an order is placed during the winter months, because of the snow, frost, etc., delivery will be in the spring of the following year. Our cut-off date for guaranteeing a stone will be set before winter is Labor Day. If a purchase is made after that, there is a chance that the marker will not be set until the following year. For specific questions about having a monument set before a certain date (e.g. Memorial Day) please call or e-mail us via the link at the bottom of this page.
