We will selectively rake out and repoint the masonry with historically appropriate, custom matched lime mortar; repair the wood elements on the exterior of the building; and recoat the metal roof.
Preservation efforts include replacing the cedar shake roof with an in-kind replacement; repairing and preserving the upper floor windows, trim, and dormers; and, finally, repairing and resetting the upper belltower.
For this project, Durable Restoration performed a full repoint on sections throughout the Embassy as well as spot pointing on lower sections below the balcony.
Besides historic plaster work on the Cloister Sanctuary and Little Chapel, The Durable Restoration Company will be restoring the cemetery's magnificent mahogany doors.  The Battery Jameson's undercarriage and the Liberty Bell's headworks will both be historically replicated and replaced.
For this project, we repaired and painted areas of decaying wood on the south side of the farmhouse.
