Restoration of Ornate Facade Transforms Baltimore’s Local Treasure

Warehaus’ Envelope Forensics team spearheaded the restoration and transformation of this beautiful brick and brownstone building, situated on the corner of Redwood and Paca Streets in Baltimore. Six stories of arched windows, ornate masonry, terracotta detailing, and two types of brownstone make this building a local treasure. But owners and occupants realized that those features needed analysis and repair. The building was also suffering from water infiltration, flashing failures, lintel failures and damage caused by subgrade repairs over the years.

Extensive 3D scanning was performed to provide accurate detail needed for Warehaus to create elevation drawings – a tool to communicate the scope of façade restoration and window repair to contractors. The Warehaus  team assisted the owner with selection of qualified envelope restoration contractors and stayed on board through construction, reviewing reports including pull-testing and repair materials/methods, and providing punch-listing at regular intervals.
