Cornice Replacement Or Repair

A cornice is a horizontal metal decorative molding which crowns the building and is outward projecting in most cases. When metal rusts and deteriorates (mostly due to age), it may have to be removed. Frequently the brick behind the cornice is different than the rest of the brick or stone from which facade of the building was constructed. Often the wall behind the cornice is in a more advanced stage of deterioration than the rest of the wall due to a lack of periodic maintenance and moisture accumulation. Best Brickmasters offers services that include repairs of existing cornices and cornice replacement with new copper or galvanized steel cornice. Another solution to the cornice replacement would be to rebuild the section of the wall using new masonry materials. Best Brickmasters may rebuild the area with new stone or brick including installation of custom made limestone cornice or brick corbel. Best Brickmasters is open to client’s suggestions and will provide free estimate for new cornice based on plans and drawings.  Our services include facade restorations for properties located in Chicago Landmark District.
