In all monument sales, Pertee Monuments can include the cost of foundation installation for the stone to be set upon. In most instances, the cemetery where a person is buried has provisions for their employees to install foundations. Pertee Monuments uses the cemetery's cost formula to arrive at the amount to be paid. If the cemetery does not do their own foundations, then Pertee Monuments will provide the service. In either instance, Pertee Monuments allows for the cost to be paid along with the cost of the stone. This allows for the fastest turn-around time of purchasing the stone and it is placed in the cemetery. In some cases, a new foundation is needed under an existing stone which entails removal of the stone, old foundation reconstruction and replacement of the stone. A nice formed foundation gives the monument its best look and a 3-inch collar provides protection from cemetery equipment.
