Our part in the preservation of historical buildings.
The 70’s and 80’s were a dark time for heritage buildings in Canada. Historical facades were not adequately protected, carvings and hand wrought stonework was destroyed and buried under hideous stucco coverings. When removing these coverings and bringing back buildings to there original glory, often the terrra cotta, brick and natural stone has been damaged by fasteners, signage and years of deterioration. Mend uses several different techniques for REstoring and patching deteriorated pieces. We template on site and make custom screeds to match ornate detail when patching with our specialty mortars. Jahn Restoration Mortars are an approved historical material for re-building damaged masonry units.
