With Merendino Truss foundations, we can layout your lots, rows or entire sections for you. Stainless steel lot markers can be pre-installed into the foundations. Lines can be scribed into the wet concrete, indicating the extent of the graves. These simple steps can save time on grave layouts, hours of training staff and the headaches of mis-marked graves.
Merendino truss foundations also provide an important safety element. Weather and soil conditions will inevitably lead to unstable grave excavations. When this occurs, there is always the possibility of a family memorial being damaged or the additional work of retrieving a foundation that ended up in the grave. Truss foundations will support themselves, eliminating these risks, even if multiple graves have to be opened at the same time or in succession.
Depending on the needs of your cemetery, truss foundations can be set on grade with additional concrete in front of the memorial to place cemetery decorations. Alternatively, we can set them slightly below grade, with a mulch or gravel bed. Either way, maintenance is greatly reduced.
