Black Pearl Restoration

November 2013, Mayer Building Company turned over this single-family home restoration in the Black Pearl neighborhood. This building was in significant disrepair when the owner purchased it. Now after only 3 months worth of work on the interior and exterior, this little gem boasts a slew of improvements. In addition to the full renovations of the interior, we replaced the roof, salvaged the ridge cap terra cotta, painted the exterior siding and trim. We modified the porch and replaced broken sidewalk segments, changing this eyesore into a quaint abode with true curb appeal.

Preventative Maintenance at Historic Properties on Baronne

Mayer Building Company recently turned over a preventative maintenance package on three Landmarked buildings on Baronne St. We achieved all the guidelines for the historic permit prior to the work. After that, we set out to complete the tasks that MBC and the Owner concluded would be the best way of keeping moisture out of the three buildings. We caulked and puttied and painted windows, changed select weatherboards, removed and replaced fascia boards and gutter coves. We added downspouts, replaced gutters and installed new scuppers. We primed, back-primed and painted all repairs.
