The ultimate goal of historic preservation is to prolong the
life span of the structure and avoid, if possible, the need for
extensive and costly restoration. The older and more fragile the
original structure the more difficult that task becomes.
a result of its work with architecturally significant buildings,
FacadeMDhas developed restoration techniques that can preserve and protect
aging facades, as well as reveal and repair underlying deterioration
and damage. Key to preservation success is unflagging vigilance
in spotting and forestalling damage from age, natural use, abuse,
insects and the elements.
The starting point is a thorough professional FacadeMDvisual survey
combined with recommended laboratory materials testing and other
related procedures. FacadeMDwill devise a regular maintenance plan
that highlights potential problem areas and stresses specific
guardian recommendations for periodic follow-up examinations.
