What We Provide
Historic Finish Studies & Consulting
We conduct and execute the study and analysis of historic architectural finishes. Through this process we can determine the original colors of painted finishes and the appearance of historic interiors.
We perform conservation treatments to maintain and preserve historic finishes. These finishes primarily include plaster, murals, decorative painting, wood finishes and other surfaces.
We offer services to restore historic finishes that represent the original design intent. Where finishes cannot be preserved we can replicate them to match the original appearance.
Preservation at its best is a collaborative process. Our mission at Historic Surfaces LLC is simple: To contribute our knowledge and expertise to help preserve historic buildings and finishes. We are inspired by the craft involved in the creation of our built heritage and have worked diligently to understand as much as we can about traditional materials and techniques. We are grateful for the relationships we have and continue to find in and around this field. Moving forward we will work together with you to preserve the icons of our history for future generations.
