Brownstone Restoration – Before and After!
Restoring brownstone requires a blend of art and science. Modern restoration mortar products, like Jahn Cathedral Stone Restoration Mortar, in the hands of a skilled craftsperson can produce excellent results even on severely deteriorated carved brownstone like the example shown here.

Here a severely deteriorated window hood is shown before and after restoration. These replacement pieces are cast with a custom mix of the Jahn product. The molds were made by the contractor from custom fabricated wood models based on surviving evidence on the building and historic photos of it.
With the right product in the hands of the right people, remarkable results can be achieved. https://www.facebook.com/knowlesindustrial/
