Scope of work:
Masonry Cleaning and Restoration, Stone Repair and Restoration
Algae growth and efflorescence (white surface salts) were present from prolonged exposure to moisture. Small areas of paint were evident, particularly on Joliet Lamont limestone window sills. This paint also trapped moisture within the stone leading to spalling. Marion Restoration has made a light cleaning of all masonry to remove paint, algae growth and soiling. We have restored all repairable deteriorated sandstone units on the front facade of the building. We have also rebuilt chimney at the West Elevation, replacing catastrophically damaged bricks and repointing with an appropriately formulated mortar.
