Brownstone is a porous stone which can suffer freeze thaw damage when exposed to moisture. After well over a century of exposure, some of the lintels and sills of this Beacon Hill brownstone building required replacement. Cleary and Sons, Inc. is used to addressing all issues at the window opening and so engaged the mason we customarily use for such projects who fabricated and installed these large brownstone elements.
This project also required us to furnish full restoration of the windows, including the exterior sills and trim. The lone doghouse roof dormer, long neglected, was rebuilt.
Replacement of brownstone sills.
