Why Industry Professionals Recommend Hudson Valley Memorial Group

Hudson Valley Memorial Group realizes that a monument is a deeply personal and enduring symbol of a cherished person who will always occupy an important place in a family’s heart. We rely on our own family’s eight generations of industry knowledge to design, construct and install monuments that best articulate this sentiment.

With a long history, a commitment to excellence, a genuinely caring staff and the trust of our peers, we are uniquely positioned to create beautiful memorials for our area. It is our goal to exceed expectations and in doing so, we often partner with industry professionals whose standards align with ours.

Local Understanding, Collaboration and Commitment

Hudson Valley Memorial Group regularly devotes time to nurturing reciprocal peer relationships. We believe that cooperation leads to more fruitful relationships for everyone and we enjoy collaborating on projects large and small.

As a result, local funeral homes, area cemeteries and the families we have previously served routinely refer families directly to Hudson Valley Memorial Group.

They trust that we will provide quality products that last backed by attention to detail, an ironclad guarantee and unmatched customer service. In return, we are grateful for their confidence in us and are pleased that our professional partnerships continue to deepen and grow.

We know cemeteries’ rules and regulations and use that knowledge to refer families to the best local location for their memorial.

As a result, we enjoy a trusted position with the cemetery professionals in our area.

Guaranteed Quality

Hudson Valley Memorial Group is keenly aware that building the finest quality monument starts with the stone from which it is carved.

Because of our commitment to quality, we ensure that a high level of excellence remains our standard. With rigorous quality checks at every stage, we use the knowledge of those that worked before us to bring quality and enduring beauty to each stone we create today. From quality quarried stone to sophisticated artistic design standards to the final installation, we stand by our creations.

Our memorials are not mass-produced — each detail is personalized and crafted for the individual. In fact, our caring staff takes the time to learn the likes and dislikes of the family member as we plan the stone that will best match their personality and pay tribute to a life well-lived. In this way, each monument we create is as unique as the person we are memorializing.

We have the experience and integrity to take each factor of the memorial into consideration when designing for a site. In fact, the granite we source is tested to stand up to the temperatures and weather common to the Hudson Valley, from frigid temperatures to punishing precipitation and extreme weather events.

As one of the earliest and only authorized retailers in the area, Hudson Valley Memorial Group proudly offers a wide range of beautiful and high-quality granite, excavated from Rock of Ages quarries in the United States and Canada.

Providing Solutions

As award-winning memorial builders, Hudson Valley Memorial Group understands fabrication and installation requirements and have proven our prowess to our peers over many generations. Our industry knowledge and commitment to exacting quality means we are able to handle any obstacle that might arise and ultimately, bring families lasting peace.

Our trusted colleagues know that we are industry leaders with the skills to resolve many types of complex design and installation challenges, and they occasionally honor us with requests to improve other memorials.

In some cases, the family may have purchased a monument from an online retailer. Often, these memorials do not take specific state and local regulations into consideration and the resulting stone is not suited for or even allowed in area cemeteries. We know which stones work best and can confidently recommend them, with a guarantee.

Sometimes, referred families are saddled with a faulty design and don’t know where to turn. Hudson Valley Memorial Group’s talented artisans have provided beautiful solutions for these artistic challenges again and again.

Families may not be initially aware that memorial delivery from out-of-state or online companies doesn’t include installation. Because online companies are often unfamiliar with state regulations, a memorial shipment can be rejected and shipped back at client expense. We regularly educate families to help them steer around risks that look like savings but end up being costly mistakes.

Hudson Valley Memorial Group works hard to ensure that families who trust us to create a custom memorial have a positive experience and are satisfied with the final tribute to their loved one.

Restoration & Repair

When a memorial needs maintenance or restoration, area professionals often call on Hudson Valley Group’s Charles Minozzi Senior, who has transformed monuments at a wide variety of sites including cemeteries, churches, fire and police departments, municipal monuments and seminaries.

Our colleagues know he will use his proprietary memorial cleaning system to brings stone monuments of all ages back to their former splendor. See our Cleaning, Restoration and Repair page here.

Because we care about our community, its residents and their loved ones, we are proud that we have been able to assist local cemeteries in times of need and have been sought out for many years by local cemeteries to take care of complex or catastrophic repairs.
