Historic Reproduction – Modeling and Mold Making Services:
We research historical information as needed to replace missing features.
Once we have approval of the model or prototype, we make the mold or molds that will produce the replacement parts needed for your unique building. Most architectural and ornamental features are unique to each building. Historically, and today, Terracotta or cast stone molds can almost never be reused from one building to a new or different project. This is due to the unique characteristics and dimensions of historic structures. In order to repair your historic masonry, an individualized and unique approach is required.
These services include:
• Historical research
• Raw material and color matching
• Model and mold making
• Customized casting or hand forming
• Precise matching of visual texture and color
• Installation of replacement parts and pointing
