Memorials are designed to last for generations, but this longevity exposes them to years of pollution, dirt, debris, and grass clippings. Understandably, families may be reluctant to install new monuments to accompany older memorials. Sometimes, they may just wish for it to be cleaned. Tunkhannock Monuments offers a process to clean and restore the appearance of these older monuments.
Over time, bronze may tarnish. This is a thin layer of patina that accumulates through a chemical reaction that results from being exposed to oxygen in the area. While specific cleaners may work in mild cases, full restoration requires the work of professionals. Tunkhannock Monument is proud to be able restore and refurbish aged monuments back to their original form and appearance.
Over time, monuments may begin to shift from their foundation. This can be for a number of reasons, including poor workmanship, inferior foundations, or nearby excavation on cemetery grounds. The work to restore the monument will differ depending on the issue. If it's an improper seal, we can reset the memorial and reseal the joints. If it's a foundation issue, we can remove the material, excavate the original foundation, and replace it with new materials. In the case of a sunken flat marker, we can use gravel and other equipment to make it level with the sod. Often, we will recommend a cleaning to restore the original appearance.
