The Bell tower experienced a full exterior restoration which included removing and replacing all of the slate on the main steeple and a smaller turret, along with a complete reconstruction of two hand carved finials. The masonry portion of the steeple was spot pointed where necessary and the brownstone elements were restored with Jahn Brownstone repair mortar. All of the brownstone also was coated with a vapor permeable mineral coating which will halt any further deterioration from poor past repairs.
Relying on federal guidelines, masons followed the criteria of Preservation Briefs, which stipulate how historic buildings are preserved, rehabilitated and restored. Durable Restoration craftsmen completed the stone patching and repair of this church’s exterior because of our expertise in mortar products from Jahn International and KEIM Mineral Coatings.
