Historic Stone Strengthening and Restoration
Your historic building is a unique, iconic piece of your city. Historic buildings tend to be well-built and long lasting. But even the best building decays over time.
Nearly every historic building includes masonry of some kind. Countless historic downtown buildings lend their brick and stone charm to their communities. Historic masonry may include brick, stone, terra-cotta, or concrete block.
Yet even the most well-constructed historic masonry decays with time.
Stone type, building use, provision for moisture management, and original construction impact the longevity of the building itself, while climate, sun exposure, and orientation contribute to environmental decay of your historic building.
Just like your community, your historic building is unique and has unique character. The type of stone used in your building's construction is part of what makes your building special.
And it's worth preserving.
Proper Historic Masonry Restoration requires an understanding of the structure's original method of construction and guidance on the appropriate materials and methods for repair.
That's what Total Restoration Services is here for.
