This was a tough project and tested us on many levels. Once the paint was removed, we uncovered heavily spalled brick with very poor repairs including caulking and cement all over the brick. The single whythe facade had so much deterioration that we were forced to dismantle and rebuild.
The final product with over 50% of the brick salvaged during the reconstruction. Old white pine was used for the sill replacements. Windows, soffit and fascia restored. Restored bargeboard that was original to the 1880’s construction. The red against the black is in keeping with the original colour wash. Porch and columns to be restored.
