Local Law # 11 has changed the face I of New York. Many buildings have been stripped of their original ornamentation in the name of “safety”. Standard is known for our ability to retain a building’s historical character while complying with local ordinances.
If problems are discovered, Standard supervisory staff works closely with our craftsmen to analyze, repair and fabricate new stonework to match your structure’s original specifications.
Facade cleaning is another component of restoration. Years of acid rain and exhaust pollution alter the color of building stone. Standard brings back your stone’s natural beauty with the latest chemical and pressurized cleaning processes.
Our historical preservation specialists can then thoroughly seal and weatherproof all vulnerable areas.
During our three generations of restoration, Standard has fulfilled contracts for many landmark buildings including:
EMPIRE STATE BUILDING
NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY (Main Building)
UNION THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
ST. PATRICK’S CATHEDRAL
LINCOLN CENTER FOR THE
MARBLE COLLEGLATE CHURCH
At Standard we feel every building deserves to be treated as a landmark. If preserving your building’s historical integrity is as important to you as correcting its problems, call for Standard craftsmanship.
