Durability Over Time

Our intention is to use materials and techniques that will produce columbaria capable of lasting hundreds of years, requiring minimal maintenance. While it is fairly easy to envision a Timeless® Columbarium located inside a building outlasting the building itself, external environmental conditions drive various degradation effects, depending on the chosen materials and mitigation techniques.

Understanding that there are no “perfect” materials within affordable limits, we carefully review the intended site locations and advise our customers as to the relative resistance to degradation offered by the various exterior and interior structural materials that are offered.


We recommend only materials that have proven durability performance or exhibit characteristics that are equivalent to materials that have proven durability.


Aluminum, stainless steel, stone or concrete are recommended, depending on the enviromental conditions and preferences of the customer.

Examples of Stone Types and Colors

While most of these are quarried in North America and are readily available, please contact us if you are interested in a stone that is not included in our list.

“We were able to install the 24,000 pounds of steel and 11 cabinets onto the pre-placed foundations in less than 7 days. Even though this was a one-of-a-kind custom project, the only modifications we needed to perform were slightly enlarging a few anchor-bolt holes. Otherwise all of the connections were bolted and everything fit together beautifully.”
