Historic Building Restoration


Our blog of current work is updated regularly (see below). For a more frequent set of postings, our instagram account is active as well..

Went to the Evergreen Brickwork today for a kiln visit. What a great site and adaptive reuse. (at Evergreen Brick Works)

From 1881 to 2018 - Lead Coated Copper rocks! @copperworkscanada - Lee and his talented team are about to reveal their work on the pilaster brackets, cornice and pediment sign. (at Toronto, Ontario)

Some added features to a barrel vaulted chimney cap. 2lb lead sheet is folded with a single seam and fastened to the top of the chimney where freeze thaw will penetrate. Helical ties were also used to tie the outer walls of the arches to help secure the walls.

Sunroom completed. Slate, copper, wood restoration, stained glass repairs, stone restoration and traditional English tuckpointing. A lot for an exterior sunroom.
@eraarch (at Toronto, Ontario)

Some great shots from John the homeowner. Steve is working on the chimney, Joseph on the clay tiles and Jeremy repointing the purple sandstone. Awesome work guys - can wait to reveal this one. (at Toronto, Ontario)

@ezra_g_stone laying up the clay tiles we reproduced from moulds. (at Toronto, Ontario)

The many faces of the Levack Block on Ossington Ave. The restored facelift is coming soon. (at 88 Ossington (formerly OMAW))
