1905 Historic Church

We completed repairs and restoration to the concrete steps and porch landing. We addressed many repairs including removal of carpet adhesive set applied around 1950, structural repairs with major cracks to the concrete steps and refinishing the original octagonal tile pavers at landing.

The removal of adhesive was accomplished with a lot of chemicals, pressure washing, grinding and hard work.

The concrete steps cracks were repaired with epoxy chemical and sand creating a paste and filler. Then we applied a stucco cement product over all steps and risers creating a uniform look and old original finish as was in the beginning.

The tiles after being stripped were tooled  with a diamond cup grinder-sander and also honed with a diamond sanding pad. They have a earth tone color of beige and also has a pattern with black tiles creating a diamond pattern which is very interesting.

Finally we applied for the finishes a concrete stain over all steps and applied a clear silcone sealer over steps and the tile landing.
