This row home façade had fairly serious surface damage to most of the second floor cornice and woodwork. The masonry surface was also in substandard condition with voids, cracks and evident previous patchwork.
Work began with removing shoddy vinyl shutters and scraping of the woodwork.
The paint and surface condition was poor, but the decorative elements were solid and intact. Some trim moldings were replaced on the corbels and a few dentils were replaced.
Window casings were in poor condition suffering from water damage and general neglect.

After priming, extensive caulking was employed and contrast color topcoats were applied.
The masonry surface was repaired and resurfaced in trouble areas. Two applications of a masonry specific elastomeric coating was then applied.
A trim molding element was installed at the interface of the cornice and the masonry surface.
