Travertine Marble Restoration, Mural Preservation for Millard Sheets Home Savings and Loan Building

Montebello, Los Angeles
Los Angeles, USA

Most of the lower wall of this building was stained due to the proximity of the landscape watering system and the daily soaking of the stone. The travertine marble restoration involved using a very light abrasive process to remove the soiling without significant removal of the substrate. Our repair techniques also included complete removal of stone panels in order to reattach, repair and reinstall the veneer components. After removal of old steel anchors that were no longer necessary, patching and cleaning improved the overall apppearance dramatically. We also restored the glass mosaic as well as the leaded-glass mural, preserving as much of the original historic material as possible
