Historic Restoration

Restoring Structural Integrity To The Finest Detail

Metropolitan is a highly experienced masonry and waterproofing contractor with expertise in the restoration of architecturally significant historic structures. Whether the project demands the complete restoration of the building facade, or spot masonry work that might include the reproduction and reinstallation of intricate architectural elements (i.e. precast stone cornices, modillions, parapet caps, balustrades), our firm has years of experience in restoring historically significant structures.

From education facilities to commercial properties and residential town house conversions, Metropolitan has a highly experienced project management team and skilled artisans to ensure quality restoration that meets the most stringent industry standards while also accommodating client’s scheduling demands. When appropriate, Metropolitan works closely with the client’s architectural teams to further ensure restoration integrity.

Concurrent to restoring a structure as close as possible to original condition/construction, at the cornerstone of our historic restoration services is the critical goal of sealing the building envelope in order to achieve a watertight facade from roof to foundation.

Harvard University, Worcester Academy, and Brown University are among our firm’s clients.
