Memorial Designing Opportunities
Our 40 plus years of experience has taught us that there are different types and quality of granite. When you choose a fine grain granite they are smaller and more tightly grained, which tends to withstand the weather elements better. Coarse or large grain granite tends to absorb water and may not hold up as well in the Michigan seasonal climate changes. Some of the intricate designs or small lettering may break off due to water expansion or contraction within a course grained stone. During our design consultation, we can confidently direct you to the best granite according to your memorial's style, size, design and lettering selection.
Large Selection of Premium Granite Colors
Clinton Grove Granite Works carries a variety of 1st. quality premium granite colors. We offer a large selection of U.S. granites quarried from Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Vermont and also Canada. These granites are proven to retain their original style in lettering and withstand varying weather conditions. Clinton Grove Granite also stocks some of the imported granites too.
All of our Etching Designs are crafted by hand. The Artist uses a diamond tipped engraving tool to hand etch or draw the chosen design directly onto a polished black memorial. Diamond Etchings are created on high quality polished Black Granite which gives the greatest details and contrast. Please realize that the clarity obtained using this process is extremely superior compared to the industry popular Laser Etchings, there is no comparison! The clarity, details and quality of the Etchings Designs is remarkable and created on site in our workshop. Our Artist is also available to recreate a loved ones portrait from a clear 5 x 7 or larger photographs.
