Abbot Building Restoration Company completes work on faÃ§ade at 1-5 Peterborough Street
September 05, 2013 - Owners Developers & Managers
Abbot removed and replaced the damaged pre-cast stones and bands with specially fabricated pre-cast stones to match the profiles of the existing stonework. Then Abbot coated all of the pre-cast stones with an elastomeric coating to provide a uniform appearance. To finish the restoration, Abbot repointed sections of the brick façade to match the original color while carefully blending the mortar to the adjoining surfaces that were not repointed.
