Gravestone Guardians of Ohio
Welcome to Gravestone Guardians of Ohio. We are very dedicated to the preservation of tombstones and grave markers. We work with the latest techniques in the cleaning and repairing of tombstones. We offer a wide ranging list of services to suit the needs of family, cemetery, and community for the purpose of documenting and preserving the monuments to those who came before us. “These People Should Not Be Forgotten” They are our loved ones and our personal links to the past. We wouldn’t have the freedom we do without these people who came before.
“You can judge the character of a town by the way their cemeteries look.”
Tombstone cleaning is done with top quality non-acidic products recommended by the Association of Gravestone Studies and other qualified tombstone preservationists. Mold, lichen, moss, and other organisms are cleaned away to leave the stone in the most restored condition possible. Common ‘handy-man’ cleaning techniques such as bleach and wire brushes can damage the stone and are never used.
Gravestone Guardians of Ohio uses only top quality restoration products & materials in the field of tombstone preservation repair. This provides the strongest, permanent, and aesthetic repairs in the field. Specially formulated epoxies provide the strength for most repairs, cracks and chips and can be filled with lime mortars to color match the stone. Depending on the break, and the weight and thickness of a tablet style stone, nylon pins are used with the epoxy when repaired. This provides a permanent stability to the stone and will never rust.
It would be our honor to bring back the dignity to your ancestor’s tombstone that they deserve, with a preservation minded restoration that all will be proud of for many years to come.
