It was a real pleasure working with master metal artisan Fred Devantier finishing up the copper flashing at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site. Fred worked with me for over 10 years before retiring 5 years ago. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have a longtime good friend with his skillset available to help me out.#theodoreroosevelt #column-restoration #copperwork #historicrestoration #metalartisan

Truly appreciating the opportunity to restore windows in one of the most beautiful buildings in Buffalo. Restoring the loggia windows in this phase. The purple glass was caused by too much manganese oxide in the mix causing the glass to turn the lavender color after time much like the famous Boston Beacon Hill glass. Also making use of our “faux” windows to make our work invisible while the windows are out. Just a fabulous building to work on for one of our favorite customers !#twentiethcenturyclubbuffalo #preservebuffaloniagara #beautifulbuildings #woodwindowrestoration #lavenderglass #purpleglass #beaconhillboston #historicglass
