Q. What are the different headstones finishes?
A. Finishes used on headstones have a significant impact on its lifespan and appearance.
  • Polished headstones are smooth and shiny as glass and require regular careful maintenance. The majority of churchyards don't allow them because they have a reflective surface.
  • Part Polished headstones are glossy on the face of the headstone and the top of the base.
  • Honed finishes are smooth and non-reflective which is achieved by partially removing polish with dust.
  • A Pitched finishis much rougher thanother finishes. They are created with a bolster and hammer. Headstones with pitched finishesare very rustic.
  • Sawed is a semi-smooth finish after being cut with a wire or diamond saw.
