War memorials can range from a simple commemorating plaque to an elaborate space containing statues, gardens, and honour rolls. The choice will ultimately come down to your location, goals, budget, and community needs. Therefore all work carried out by us is customised to these factors.
One of our experienced masons will meet with a representative at the memorial site to give a professional assessment. To give you a general idea of what work can be done, here are some of the most common war memorials
While new memorials can be created for the unique tastes and needs of any community, they generally take the form of:
If the monument has been around for a while, there’s a good chance (especially if located outside) that the gold leaf or painting has worn on the inscription. In which case, one of our masons will come to the memorial site and redo.
The extent of cleaning or renovation needed is going to vary between every monument. Monuments can sink, accumulate outside elements, or even crack. In some cases, it may be cheaper to create a new memorial altogether. Therefore each memorial needs to be professionally assessed by one of our masons. From there we can provide a proper assessment and advice.
This is a fairly straightforward process with the work either being done on or off site, depending on conditions at the memorial site. In either case, the new inscription is carefully laid out and sandblasted by a certified professional. It’s also worth noting that additional words are always matched with existing font letters for obvious reasons.
The Ingleburn RSL Sub-branch wanted to create a new memorial space paying tribute to the local soldiers who fought during the wars. Our masonry team worked closely with Ray James (President of the Sub-branch) to construct the site.
