Historical Exterior Restoration

Since they are constantly exposed to the weather, the galleries and porches of a historical home will need more repairs and maintenance than the other exterior areas. It's not uncommon for there to be problems with the posts and flooring. This is because water often finds it way upward from the foundation and causes rotting.

Ornamental features are important on the home because they define the architectural style. It's important to maintain and repair them. If the feature becomes detached from the building, it will start rotting quicker due to moisture exposure underneath where there is no protective paint or sealant.
