Slants


Slant Monuments are a classic way to create a fitting memorial. They are crafted from granite and are traditionally lower to the ground than dies and can be set directly on the cemetery footer at ground level or atop a base. These are available in a variety of colors and styles. The inclined inscription surface not only contributes to the prominence of the inscription, but also, unlike the flat or flush marker it sheds the rainfall and nature, which keeps it clean. This type of marker is singularly appropriate in association with a family memorial or as a single or double grave marker.

Slants also typically have a rock front nose, but western style slants do have a full face and no front nosing. The face of a slant is traditionally polished and the sides and front nose are usually a natural rocky appearance. The tops and back of slants can be polished, rock pitch, or have a smooth or dull finish. There are a wide variety of options to choose from. Contact Speidell Monuments for assistance to choose the right one for you.
