On the corner of Walnut Street and Crawford in downtown Vicksburg, MS is an amazing looking, historic office building. It was first used as a post office and courthouse and is currently being used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as the headquarters of the Mississippi River Commission. This charming and unique building was constructed in 1894 and has been an important part of the city ever since.
We were contacted to make improvements to the exterior of this historic brick building. Restoring brick buildings takes special techniques. Depending on the condition of the brick surface a clean and seal can make a huge difference. If the mortar is damaged then more extensive repairs are needed to complete the restoration. All things considered this building was in great shape for being close to 130 years old.
After assessing the overall condition of the building’s exterior our team made a plan and executed. Some members of the team worked on fixing damaged mortar using a process called tuck pointing. The rest of the team got to work replacing damaged, dried out caulking. Once all the repairs were finished we performed a complete clean and seal service.
All our hard work resulted in a historic building that looks brand new. Not only does it look great, this historic brick office building is now protected from the elements and will continue to look great for years to come. Our industry leading brick sealing products also makes the building easier to clean and maintain.
We are always looking for our next project. If your commercial building needs exterior restoration services, call us at 1-800-785-9927 or Request a Quote.
