The casket selection is a very personal decision and expression of your feelings whether you are pre-planning for yourself or selecting one for a loved one. A casket that reflects the personality and interests of a person is the final tribute to a life well lived. We understand these needs and offer a wide variety of caskets that can help you make your decision. Below is a description of materials used in the manufacture of caskets. Each can be personalized to reflect your individual preferences.

Solid Bronze – a semi-precious material alloy, is the strongest and longest-lasting of any casket construction material. Bronze is resistant to corrosive elements, and makes an elegant, exquisite remembrance.

Solid Copper – a precious metal, is known for its longevity, beauty and resistance to corrosion. Copper is one-third stronger than stainless steel, and its combination of strength and beauty helps memorialize a remarkable life.

Stainless Steel – an alloy of carbon steel and chromium, provides strength and resistance to corrosion with striking beauty.

Carbon Steel – manufactured from high quality 16 gauge to the minimum quality 20 gauge steel are known for the affordability.

Wood – a natural and environmentally sound choice, is selected for its warmth, beauty, and uniqueness. Solid hardwoods are selected and manufactured using the same craftsmanship as skilled cabinetmakers. Also available are engineered woods which manufactured by removing the excess moisture of the remains of the tree after it has been milled into lumber. Ultra-strong adhesive resins are added and then fused under intense heat and pressure to create substrates that are structurally superior and eliminate defects found naturally in solid wood. These are a “green” alternative to solid wood. A variety of different woods offer an array of personalized choices.
