Historical Restoration

Meticulous restoration for architectural treasures.

The restoration of historical buildings and structures requires tremendous planning, care and skill — and our historical restoration company has all the qualifications.

One must approach these essential, irreplaceable pieces of history delicately to maintain the structure’s integrity while transforming its appearance. Historical buildings deserve a restoration company that approaches each project with respect and reverence — with decades of experience restoring historically sensitive properties to their original glory. To deliver the results you desire, historic restoration contractors must honor your property’s past and prepare it for a long future.

When working with historical restoration, there is a significant emphasis on the preparation time and the care taken in the actual work. Additionally, preservationists and historical societies have strict color schemes and requirements.

Historical restorations require special application methods to bring back the visual appeal of old buildings. The National Historical Trust developed a range of techniques that makes the restoration of structures easier and faster without damaging the property. To achieve the best results, contractors must follow a preservation process when applying commercial paint to transform the building to its original value.

What Steps are involved in Historical Restorations?

Due to the building’s role in history, one can’t just approach restoration projects normally. Therefore, you must ask the service provider about their processes when working on sensitive projects like historic structural restoration. Their procedures should involve all of the following steps to guarantee a successful result:

Extensive Research. This step is vital when restoring a historic building. Aside from possessing the right skills, contractors should also know the site’s background to understand why it holds importance. Preparation for the job must include reading archived documents and examining old structure photographs to uncover relevant information.

Analysis. Laboratory testing is performed to determine the structure’s material content, including tests for the presence of lead. This is essential in determining the appropriate materials and treatments to apply. Non-destructive surface analysis is also conducted at the site, using portable equipment to test for the presence of chemicals without endangering the monument’s structural integrity.

Structural Examination. This is performed to locate holes or cracks leading to water seepage and degradation. The corrosion rate is measured through patina samples extracted from various areas of the historic structure. These tests allow the contractor to determine the appropriate materials for the project and what procedures must be performed on-site.

Paint Selection. Once the proper coatings are identified, the restoration process begins.
