We offer top quality restoration of Brownstone facades and stoops while adhering to New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission guidelines. Our team is able to reproduce hand carved ornaments and all elaborate stone details to match existing Architectural styles. In addition, we also tuckpoint brick facades, repair specialized Bluestone sidewalks and patios. To prevent damage to these properties the best idea is maintenance.

Maintain the front stoop, and take special care underneath stoop. Make sure is well ventilated.
