Historic Building Restoration

CURRENT WORK

Our blog of current work is updated regularly (see below). For a more frequent set of postings, our instagram account is active as well..

The owner of this interesting building contacted me today to see about restoring the front facade. Many articles have been written about 54.5 St. Patrick Street, Toronto. This came down to an aggressive developer and a homeowner that wanted to stay put. You have to admire her fight to stay.

A sign worth reading. This sums up a lot of reasons why we take our time and get things right the first time.

Hunt Heritage teamed up with #GBCA to conserve the Bradburn house in Markham. This house was moved and placed in the middle of the park. The basement is 20 feet down and houses the water pumping station for the community. All the openings were rebuillt to match the original dimensions and design. . . #pickupandgo #heritagepreservation #adaptandreuse #facadebrickremoval #flip #relay #loadsofwork #niceadditionofftheback #funproject (at Markham, Ontario)

Hard to believe its been 3 years since we restored the corner of Keele and Dundas. I had to push the developer hard to let us rebuild the curved parapet. I never get tired of driving by, even on a cold winter night. . . #campbellblock #heritagepreservation. #siliconcrownmoulding #inverted #toformthe #continuous #concretecap #wechanged #thehoodforgood #junction

After stripping multiple layers of paint and varnish, we are now getting to the glazing part of the job. Leaded windows are carefully disassembled, broken pieces removed, glass cut, new H channel and solder + mastic putty applied. The doors are also stripped and glass removed. They will receive wood repairs and prepped for stain. Black cherry oil stain is used here for the interior and a light shade of green for the exterior. These windows and doors will look great! . . #heritagewindows #stainedglass #doorrestoration #theselby
