We are available to perform the duties of a general contractor for more comprehensive heritage building preservation projects. Our expanded range of general contracting services include masonry restoration and repairs, wood repair and restoration, painting, and work on all other building envelope elements.
Any damage or defect to a building envelope can mean disaster for the structure and interior of a historic building. In order to properly preserve a heritage building, you must repair, restore or replace any elements that impact the structural integrity of the building, cause safety concerns, or threaten the historic architectural features of the property.
