masonry restoration

Franco has performed a variety of masonry restoration services, such as Verizon II, The Point State Park Fountain,the Masonic Temple, and Carnegie Mellon University’s Scott Hall (seen above). The goal of all of our restoration projects is to restore, preserve and maintain the integrity and beauty of the existing structures. Areas of restoration include copings, cornices, projecting elements such as belt-course, water tables and ornamentation, repairs to masonry units, mortar and sealant joints that are broken, cracked, missing, loose or are otherwise defective are repaired sooner rather than later.


Problematic water infiltration through masonry walls attack steel lintels, shelf angels, anchors and wall ties that can result in more costly repairs. When properly maintained and repaired, most masonry buildings will last beyond our own lifetime.

Dear Becky,

I want to thank you and your company for the excellent job you did on the Point State Park Fountain Rehabilitation Project. Your dedication and quality craftsmanship helped S.E.T., Inc. complete another successful project at Point State Park.

There is no question that over the years, Franco Associates has been involved in a wide variety of commercial construction and masonry restoration projects.  We are proud of all of them —   from those that are large and high visibility to those that are smaller and more community focused.  Visit our Project Gallery to get a “birds eye” view and sampling of just a few of our projects as you evaluate our strengths and capabilities.
