Ragstock Restoration

This is a historical building in downtown Duluth MN that Johnston Masonry was contacted to repair.  We did a full inspection of the building face and found that the highly detailed Terra Cotta façade was extremely deteriorated. With expertise of our masons that have been through extensive training on building restoration and specifically Terra Cotta restoration we brought the historical façade back to life. 

With the assistance of Edison coatings material and training programs we were able to achieve a perfect match on the resurfacing and cast moulding of new pieces. Also, tuckpointing all damaged joints with mortar that was so closely matched the naked eye could not spot the difference between the new and the old. Being on one of the busiest areas of Duluth and accomplishing the project with no safety mishaps we pride our selves in a job well done.
