Painting on Cemetery Monuments
Abrasive blasting can produce proper surface preparation for the adhesion of subsequent coats or final finishing. When properly executed, a bold colour can instantly brighten a tombstone or grave marker’s surface, making the inscription more readable and distinct.
Proper paint or gold leaf adhesion depends on having a clean surface. It’s also vital that you have the appropriate products on hand. Oil-based soaps and polishes can stain. Products like wire brushes and stronger cleaning products can also cause noticeable damage.
The type of products and paint you choose depends on whether you’re dealing with granite, marble, or another kind of stone. Even if you follow the best advice found online, an improper application can result in less than satisfactory results.
If you’re considering painting a family member’s upright monument at the cemetery, be aware that you’ll be working in full sight of other visitors. Not everyone is comfortable with this idea.
When in doubt, seek the services of a professional. A grave marker of any kind is too precious to put at risk.
We have the know-how and equipment to restore or alter the appearance of any wood, stone, brick, or concrete surface. Create the surface texture you want for a look that truly stands out.
