Historic Masonry Restoration Process
We restore residential and commercial historic structures to boost their lifespan and preserve their status. Our professionals thoroughly inspect the building before recommending repairs. We provide cosmetic and structural repairs to ensure that your restoration is complete, sending a professional mason to your property to assess your needs and provide you with an expert solution. Many historical buildings were built with cement, mortar, or granite. We find what is needed and professionally restore the building to look as good as new. We understand every structure is unique, so we tailor our services to the extent of the deterioration. Our experts find the best possible course of action to preserve the building.

For residential or commercial buildings that have suffered extensive damage or structural weakening, our masons can expertly remove or replace entire sections of the masonwork to improve the appearance of your property.
