Historic Restoration – Heritage Preservation
At Gillespie Contracting Inc. we believe that restoration is an art form. We have 31 years of experience which has led us to the forefront of the industry. We specialize in historic restoration work of homes, churches, university buildings and other historic structures.
We are highly skilled in tackling slate restoration projects. We can salvage any existing slate that is still useable and matches it with new tiles in keeping with the look of the property. When making changes we always seek out the appropriate approval from authorities to adhere to regulations in historical conservation areas.
When completing any kind of historic tile restoration, we will do a combination of salvaging the existing tile and replacing it where necessary with suitable tile in keeping with the historic style of the property.
At Gillespie Contracting Inc. we believe that restoration work is a form of art. We take pride in our ability to exactly replicate finials, steeples and other custom copper fabrication work during our historic restoration projects. We also restore copper roofs, flashing and guttering.
