Project Summary

Bailey Edward was brought on to restore the National Historic Register courthouse’s ornate limestone façade, which was in dire needs of repairs as it had been suffering from years of severe deterioration. Restoration efforts included the removal of monolithic coping stones, replacing corroded stone fasteners with stainless steel fasteners, replacing deteriorated copper thru-wall flashing with new stainless steel flashing, replacing existing lead cams, and installing new sanded sealant along the roofing interface. These repair and restoration efforts helped to extend the life of the exterior of the building by 100+ years and maintain its unique historic character.
