Historic Restoration / Preservation

Owners of Historically significant buildings can benefit when following approved restoration and preservation procedures. Some of these benefits include tax credits at both the State and Federal level. Additionally, buildings that have historical quality are usually the first to become occupied according to many real-estate experts. Most importantly, the use of proper cleaning products, masonry mortars and waterproofing sealants will prevent further deterioration of the building's facade.

  • The Federal Courthouse in Port Huron, MI The Federal Courthouse in Port Huron, MI, was built in the early 1870's. The sandstone facade had become badly blistered and delaminated.
    Mark 1 installed over 500 stone patches using custom blended mortar. The intricate Egg and Dart detail had also eroded. The worst stone was replaced with new hand carved details. The remaining stone was consolidated. The dome was resealed due to leaking and the entire building was cleaned using non-aggressive techniques.
