Caskets or Coffins can be categorized into two basic material types, Metal Caskets, and Wooden Caskets. Metal ones are manufactured from various metal materials, including Bronze, Copper, Stainless Steel, and Standard Steel. Metal caskets are always more durable compared to wooden caskets. 18 gauge and 20 Gauge Metal caskets are the most popular in the U.S. market today. The gauge casket number shows how thick a metal is. The less the number - the thicker the wall. For example, 18 gauge caskets have a thicker wall than 20 gauge caskets, and it's heavier. The wood caskets are considered traditional caskets and are made of wood materials, including Mahogany caskets, Walnut, Cherry, Maple, Oak, Pine, Poplar, and Veneer. Also, there is a Cremation Caskets category, those products designed especially for cremation needs and usually do not contain any metal parts.
The majority of Metal caskets and coffins have a special rubber gasket on the lid or on the casket shell. The rubber gasket is inserted around the entire perimeter of the funeral casket. The gasket feature has been designed to prevent outside elements from entering the casket at burial time. Wood caskets and products for cremation are not constructed with gaskets.
The two most highly selected interior materials are made from either velvet interior or crepe. Casket interiors are designed to project softness and compliment the exterior finish of the casket. Some of our funeral coffins are available with embroidery inside a lid to add more personality. Velvet interior is considered the softer and more luxurious of the two materials; therefore, velvet creates a visual and tactile difference between metal and wood caskets. Caskets come in two basic lid types, half couch and full couch. Half Couch refers to a two-piece lid of equal lengths. Typically only one lid piece is opened for viewings to reveal the deceased from the waist up. The half couch is the most commonly used lid style. Full Couch refers to a one-piece lid extending the length of the casket.
While many people ask us this question, we always want to ensure that our customers are not just buying a cheap casket. You need to get the best deal on a high-quality funeral casket or coffin at the best price. Casket prices vary and depend on many factors. At this difficult time of grief, here at Trusted Caskets, we are ready to offer you funeral caskets for sale at the lowest price on the market. The main factors that affected the casket prices are the type of casket, the type of material used to build the coffin or casket, type of interior. For instance, caskets for cremation, veneer wood caskets, and 18 or 20-gauge metal caskets are usually considered less expensive options. On the other hand, oversized caskets, stainless steel caskets, solid wood caskets, copper, and solid bronze caskets are typically considered more expensive because of the higher price of the materials and involve more expensive technologies to build them. The burial and funeral services are expensive. The typical price starts from $7500 and can easily exсeed $20000. If you check the casket price list in the local funeral home, the average price there for a burial casket is between $3500 to $9500. Some of them buy caskets from online retailers like us, adding several thousand to our price and trying to sell them. With Trusted Caskets, our clients have the best deal possible to buy a high-quality casket and not overpay for that.
The last thing you need to worry about is whether the funeral home accepts the casket from us, and the short answer is don't worry about it. There is a Funeral Rule. You can find it on the website of the Federal Trade Commission, by which the funeral home has no right to refuse coffins from a third-party seller. Under this Federal Law, Funeral homes and your funeral director have no choice but to accept caskets from any supplier. It isn't necessary to buy a casket, urn, or any other product from a local funeral home if you can buy the same casket from us and save $2000-5000. Additionally, funeral homes are not allowed to charge any handling fee for the use of caskets from a third-party seller. You can be sure the Funeral Homes must accept our caskets.
The main reason behind the expense of caskets is the materials made for manufacturing. Solid copper and solid bronze can be amongst the most expensive choices. Cloth-covered caskets and plywood tend to be the most affordable options.
Fiberglass caskets are also available which can look similar to wood. Inside caskets, you will find different lining materials which can also influence the price. These materials include linen, velvet, silk, crepe, and more.
How much do cheap caskets cost? This depends on your budget, but there is a range that can help you determine the cost. The cost of caskets is a broad topic with several variables. It depends on the material as well as interior linings used. Typically, an average casket costs in the ballpark of $2,000.

For centuries, monks have supported themselves with common trades such as farming, brewing beer and harvesting timber. Today, the monks of Saint Joseph Abbey in Covington, La., hand-make plain wooden caskets. Selling caskets helps the monks pay for food and healthcare, and helps them share their belief in the noble simplicity of life and death.
The answer was casket-making. On November 28, 1992, Bishop Stanley Ott of Baton Rouge died and was buried in one of the simple wooden caskets that the monks had been making for themselves for decades. Bishop Warren Boudreaux of Houma-Thibodaux was also buried in an Abbey casket when he died on October 6, 1997. These funerals led many people to inquire about buying Abbey caskets for their loved ones, and these requests kept coming through the early 2000s.
This was the perfect opportunity for the monks: Casket-making was a simple occupation that could be performed at the monastery; hand-made monastic caskets are a unique product for which there is a large market; and selling caskets enables the monks to share their view of the simplicity and unity of life and death. Monasteries in Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota are already in the casket business.
The Plaintiffs are Saint Joseph Abbey and Deacon Mark Coudrain. Deacon Mark was ordained as a deacon for the Archdiocese of New Orleans in 2006, following in the footsteps of his father. In 2007, he left his job as CEO of WLAE-TV, the New Orleans public television station, to work full time for the Abbey as the director of their Christian Life Center. He also returned to his lifelong love of woodworking and began to build caskets in the monastery woodshop. 041b061a72
