Rotten and Lead Laden Historic Porch Rebuild
Clients had replaced the steps to their 1900 home before they realized that the column bases, porch floor, and porch structure were rotted. They didn’t realize that the deteriorating paint was lead based. We did a lead-safe clean up, and replaced the entire structure and floor. We had all new column bases turned at a millwork shop, and we repaired the original wood staved columns and the capitals. All met historic district guidelines.
