Cemetery Concrete Headstone Bases in Rochester
Pouring a foundation for a headstone in Rochester is as simple as forming a slab of concrete. But if you want the foundation to last for a long time, there are other things that you can do to make the foundation stronger so it will last longer.
A strong foundation will not begin to crack and crumble in the next few decades. Keep in mind that there are hundreds of variations in headstone shape, material make-up, and size. Customize the size and depth of the headstone foundation based on these factors.
Headstone Concrete Bases Foundation for Rochester
A slab foundation is a large, thick slab of concrete that is typically 4”-6” thick in the center and poured directly on the ground all at one time. The edges of the slab are thicker (as wide as 24”) in order to allow for extra strength around the perimeter.
A concrete slab foundation is most commonly constructed on property that has been graded, as it should be. It is very important that the soil be graded because if it’s not, the foundation could sink or settle due to poor soil compaction.Contact Us

Thank you for the great work
Recently just had the foundation base of my father’s memorial headstone laid down, and was very pleased with Headstone Foundations. They were very professional, quick and laid down a very sturdy foundation for the headstone. Would definitely recommend!
Tons of experience and knowledge
The experience and knowledge of Headstone Foundations was a major reason for our picking them as a company to lay the base for our headstone. That same experience and knowledge was reflected all the way through the contract and we were very happy with both the result and the working practices.
