Our wood caskets offer families a broad selection, from appealing affordable veneers all the way to the natural warmth and beauty of the finest hardwood. The exterior finish both protects and beautifies a wooden casket. Some of our caskets feature elegant, understated satin finishes, while our most luxurious models feature a gleaming, hand polished finish designed to emphasize the extraordinary beauty of the wood. The fabrics used in the interior of our wood caskets are another important part of their overall value. Basic models use lighter twills and crepes, while more luxurious models feature rich velvets for extra beauty and elegance. Wood caskets are available in a variety of woods such as mahogany, cherry, oak, ash, walnut, poplar, pine and maple.
Our selection of metal caskets includes a wide range of styles and prices to accommodate the needs of all the families we serve. The exterior finish is applied by skilled craftsmen who understand the special role that the casket will play in the remembrance of a loved one. The simplest finishes are a single color of paint. More artistic finishes include adding a second color for shading to highlight the casket's shape; deep, rich lacquers for a brilliant shine, or even machine brushing to highlight the natural, gleaming beauty of the metal itself. The raw material used to build a casket plays the most important role in its value. Choosing stronger, more corrosion-resistant metals increases both the cost and the ultimate value of a casket. Using stainless steel, copper or bronze yields a casket that offers superior resistance to the elements, along with timeless beauty.
