Jim McComb began McComb Monument Company as a part-time business in 1996. It was Jim’s goal to care and provide for those in their time of need. In 1999, Jim took the first steps to expand McComb Monument Co. to a full time business when he opened the first office in Downtown Lapeer in January of 2000. Because of his hard work, the support of the community and the references from the families he worked with, the business soon outgrew this leased location. In 2006, a vacant property was purchased and the company expanded into a newly built office, showroom and inside shop in December of 2006.
Because of our reputation, we have grown to be leaders in Lapeer and Eastern Michigan when it comes to memorial craftsmanship and customer service.
Jim and his wife, Kim, were both raised in Lapeer. While Jim built McComb Monument Company, Kim spent her career as a commercial lender for several local banks. In early 2018, Kim retired from corporate banking and joined Jim full time at McComb Monument. Today, McComb Monument Company is a successful family owned and family operated business.
Jim and Kim have lived in Lapeer County for most of their lives and strongly believe in supporting the community where they raised their two grown children, Eric and Erin. Believing that giving back is very important, Jim and Kim devote their time, talents and financial support to several local non-profit organizations, including Kiwanis Club of Lapeer, United Way of Lapeer County and Country Christian Church.
Are You Overwhelmed or Confused About Choosing a Monument?
Choosing a memorial to honor your loved one is very important, but it does not have to be an overwhelming or confusing process. For over 20 years it has been our honor to guide families through the memorial process.
We begin by having you tell us about your loved one, like special memories or things that remind you of them. We also discuss any ideas about how you would like to memorialize them. Maybe you have seen something in the cemetery that you liked or something on our website. We can also match other family monuments.
Working together, we will choose which type of monument and what color granite will best honor your loved one while remaining respectful of your family’s budget.
The next step is to create the design on our Monument Drawing Program (CAD). You will be able to work with us as text, pictures and emblems are chosen and placed on the monument. We are not limited to designs preprogrammed into our system either. Do you have a picture of them, of something they loved; a pet, their farm or cabin, maybe their favorite sports team, item or character? Did they love a specific type of flower, bird or architecture? Do you have a picture they drew or a poem they wrote? It is a mis-understanding that a custom design for your loved one always increases the cost.
If your loved one is a veteran, we will provide you with the information and referral to your county’s Veterans Administration office so you can order their government bronze plaque, niche or medallion. We will also take delivery of the bronze and install it on your newly purchased monument at no cost.
When you have decided on the design, we will provide you with a folder containing your custom drawing and a written quote good for 60 days.
Whenever your family is ready to move forward with the purchase, we will make any revisions to the design and then prepare a final drawing for the family to sign that will verify the dates and design are correct. Design drawings for special orders will be prepared by the manufacturer and available in approximately 30 days for the family’s approval.
We will provide a Contract-Invoice that details the monument type, granite choice, size, all costs and any other items specific to your design. We will include the cost of the cement foundation or any fees required by the cemetery and we will handle all the arrangements for ordering and tracking the installation of the foundation. We include experienced delivery and installation with every memorial which ensures the longevity of the monument. The Contract also details our commitment to install the monument within 90 days of purchase subject to weather conditions. We are so confident in the quality of our memorials that we provide a lifetime warranty on material and craftsmanship.
We are always available for any questions during the manufacturing process and we will timely notify you when the monument is delivered and installed.
