Facade Rehabilitation

The most visible feature of a historic building and often what defines its character is its FAÇADE. A beautifully restored building articulates a sense of pride within the community. Façade rehabilitation is one of the most rewarding aspects of a historic preservation project because the entire public can experience the restoration.

Due to years of deterioration or design deficiency, façade rehabilitation may require structural improvements including; replacement or treatment of rusted ferrous metal (iron-jacking) with new non-corrosive anchoring or fastening systems, repairing cracked or spalling materials with in-kind materials or replacement of damaged, heavy ornamentation with lighter GFRC or FRP elements.

Spectra Company has successfully rehabilitated hundreds of historic façades made from a variety of materials including masonry, stone, terra-cotta, adobe, plaster, metal, decorative cast stone, and all styles of doors and windows. Spectra’s façade services include cleaning, materials restoration, door and window restoration, decorative ornament fabrication and restoration of previously altered or damaged elements. Along with these services, Spectra is lead-certified and a glazing contractor, making them a one-stop restoration expert for all historic façade restorations.
