3 Easy Ways to Know Your Church Needs Restoration Work
Posted on March 23, 2017
How does the outside look? Dirty or stained stones and the cracking of the cement holding them together? Peeling paint and rotting wood? These are common signs the outside of your house of worship needs some TLC. Whether its power washing the stone and tuck pointing the damaged cement, or repairing/replacing old wood and giving it a fresh coat of paint. We here at NJS have the tools and experience to get the job done right the first time.
Falling and crumbling plaster, spider cracks, or a mildew smell can all be indicators you have a serious water penetration that could further damage your house of worship. The first step to fixing any of these or other interior damage caused by water is to completely waterproof and caulk the exterior. Attention to detail and proper technique are crucial and with over 35 years of experience, we’ve got you covered…guaranteed.
Part of what makes many houses of worship so breath-taking is the craftsmanship of the original architecture. Whether it’s the tallest arches at the Steeple down to the shortest column all the way to the pews, nothing is immune to wear and tear over time. All pews are restored by removing old varnish to get to the natural wood. Staining them to their original color, applying a sealer coat followed by a primary and final coat of urethane. There’s no structure too high or job too complex for us.
Now that we’ve waterproofed and sealed the exterior, repaired and restored the interior, it is now time to apply a primer and a final coat of paint on your project. NJS will provide your congregation with state of the art equipment, performance, and workmanship. We understand the holiness of the sanctuary and the altar, and will take all the precautions necessary to respect and preserve them. Your house of worship will be looking like new with minimal disruption to you and your congregation’s precious worship time.
