Historic Building Restoration


metal_restoration_2REMCO has been a staple of New York City since 1932, restoring and preserving many of the world’s finest historic properties such as Grand Central Terminal, The New York Stock Exchange, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Newark City Hall.  Such projects require a thorough understanding of the conservation procedures and an immense appreciation for the iconic historic structure.  REMCO’s craftsmen recognize that protecting and maintaining a structure of historical significance is crucial in restoring the components. 

REMCO’s teams are dedicated to delivering the highest quality of service.  Our experts always assess the structure to determine the method that will best fit the client’s objective.  There are various conservation methods pertaining to historical landmarks including preservation and restoration. 

Preservation seeks to conserve, protect and/or stabilize buildings, objects, landscapes and other artifacts of historical significance.  It also refers specifically to the preservation of the built environment and aims to stop deterioration so that the structure requires no more than routine maintenance.  This can be financially sensible, having eliminated the risk of future structure replacement or renovation.  The preservation process consists of stabilizing the existing structure while rejuvenating the materials and maintaining its historical value.  

Restoration seeks to recover the original state of the historical structure while maintaining the historical value.  REMCO’s craftsmen work with a preciseness and an acute attention to detail to ensure the building does not lose its’ charisma and uniqueness through the restoration process. 

REMCO takes pride in the numerous landmarks and historical structures that we have restored over our 80 plus years of service.  A structure’s historical appeal and charm should not be compromised through conservation, no matter which method is applied.  This is a philosophy REMCO has exhibited and will continue to exhibit through each project.
