Restoration is a process in which the historical integrity and original beauty of a structure is reestablished so that it can be admired for generations to come. Old buildings, churches, homes, and landmarks have memories all their own and it is our duty to use the talents that we have to make sure that those memories continue to be cherished. In the words of Graeme Shankland, “A country without a past has the emptiness of a barren continent, and a city without old buildings is like a man without a memory.”
Our motto at Purvis Masonry Restoration is “restoring the past brick by brick.” That is why such care and professional skill is used in the restoration process as to guarantee that a structure’s historical significance is maintained. We realize that every brick and stone is irreplaceable and has tremendous historical value. In those times when certain materials can’t be salvaged, we work meticulously to make sure that replacements are as accurate as possible.
