Restoration and Repair of an Existing Stone

Monuments and memorials are a cherished, lasting reminder—But time, the elements or vandalism can deteriorate and mar existing monuments and plaques. The effects of these factors can call for restoration or cleaning that goes beyond the scope of routine maintenance.

Ottawa Monuments J.P. Laurin has been committed, for many decades, to the preserving and refurbishing of your families’ cherished monuments and memorials.

Example of an older limestone tablet in Section 3 of the Old Cemetery. We added a 3/4 inch granite plate and re-inscribed the existing inscription. This will allow the monument to continue to memorialize the loved one for all future generations.

The monument was originally cracked and the inscription had become illegible.  The addition of the plate increased the strength of the existing stone while still maintaining it as the historical stone.
