Whether for insurance reasons, to price out repairs, or to gather information regarding a potential sale, knowledgeable assessments of your marble’s value is vital and best obtained from North American’s largest church marble company..
To meet these needs, King Richard’s has designed a free appraisal program which will walk you through the process of gathering critical information so that, should the need occur, you are amply prepared. And while almost any catalog dealer can quote you a replacement value for low end pieces created in the past 40 years, only King Richard’s can actually provide appraisal for high end custom marble creations including the actual contracting cost for installs or removals, restoration services and antique replacements.

To begin, enter you church name and other basic information in the form below and click Submit. On the following page, you will provide us with information regarding each individual piece including size (in inches), manufacturer (if known), age, and location. You will also be asked to upload a photo of each item.
Our liturgical consultants will review the information and provide you with a written appraisal value. This number will act as a guide for you to properly insure the marble, plan for future maintenance costs, and as documentation should the unexpected occur.
What You Need:
1) You will need a clear overall photo of each piece. Ample lighting will allow for details regarding aging, damage, and general wear and tear to be better viewed and evaluated.
2) Measure each item (in inches) width, height and length. Measure both the individual sections of item (base, figures, accents) as well as the overall size.
3) Identify each item. You can use descriptions such as Mary side altar, Saint Michael, or use the name on a memorial plate (ie. “Dedicated to John Doe”).
