LIMESTONE - 901 LEXINGTON AVENUE, UPPER EAST SIDE
Built in 1907, this beautiful pre-war building’s exterior facade needed an upgrade. After years of having suffered damage from weathering, pollution and aging, the limestone front facade was in bad condition. Opus was requested to restore these broken and deteriorated elements of the building; to bring it back to its original glory.
“Ms. Quartin and her team at Opus are master artisans who are skillfully trained with Cathedral Stone Products patching mortar and stain repairs. Opus performed first floor façade repairs for us on projects such as 901 Lexington Avenue in New York City, along with many other buildings. We are very pleased with Opus’s attention to detail, quality of work, as well as the way they finalize repairs to expertly match the color and texture to the existing material.”
