If you are looking for a company you can trust to create a monument for a deceased loved one, you can turn to a company I trust: WALKER MONUMENT. I trust WALKER MONUMENT because we have investigated the business practices of the company, and the backgrounds of owners Darrell Fordham and Brian Giessing. We have looked into their history, licensing, and the way they treat their customers. As a result, I endorse WALKER MONUMENT and I am proud to declare them GEPHARDT APPROVED.
“We have been providing personalized and reliable services since 1973,” says co-owner Darrell Fordham. WALKER MONUMENT has been a part of Brian’s family since it opened . In fact, Brian is a third-generation stone cutter and monument builder, with many skills passed down to him from his father and grandfather. WALKER MONUMENT was purchased by Brian and Darrell from Brian’s father, Aage.
“We are proud to be in an industry where we can serve our customers with the highest quality monuments and truly personalized, custom designs that memorialize their loved ones and bring comfort to grieving family members. We listen to our customers and provide them with products that meet their budgets, endure for generations, and exceed their expectations.”
Darrell tells me that WALKER MONUMENT can create any type of monument to remember your loved ones. “We’re very understanding and we know that this can be a difficult process for our customers. We provide the highest quality craftmanship and honesty.”
When it comes to the product, Darrell tells me they have a large range of materials from which to choose. “All of our monuments are very high quality. We have thousands of designs for customers to choose from, and can also create custom, one-of-a-kind designs to uniquely satisfy any customer. Our personal attention and custom artwork sets us apart from our competitors. Our services include upright monuments, slants, and customer shapes; death-date engraving, cleaning, replication/replacement of old, damaged, or decaying monuments; concrete border replacement; porcelain and enameled steel portraits; flower vases; wreath hangers, shepherd’s hooks, wreaths, and other decorations. Sometimes our work is done in the store, sometimes we work on-site. We also provide monumental cleaning services. All of our styles are very unique and, most of the time, personally designed by our customers.”
WALKER MONUMENT tells me they hire the best staff in the industry to ensure complete satisfaction. “It’s important that our staff goes through extensive training because we are providing these special monuments for our customers that hold and represent memories of a life time.”
“These monuments are very valuable to our customers and we understand how important it is to be thorough with our work. WALKER MONUMENT holds a great value and we want to continue building these valuable relationships with our customers. Brian and I, as owners, are always personally available to our customers. We work on all facets of the process, from designing to engraving to installation. We also offer some of the shortest production times and can complete orders in a quick and timely manner.”
So there you go: WALKER MONUMENT. Now you know what I know about the company and the way they do business. You know about the owners Darrell Fordham and Brian Giessing and their dedication. You know about their services and the way they value their work and customers.
