Brownstone was once one of the most popular building finishes in New York, and many of these structures can still be seen today. With that in mind, old brownstone is not immune to the effects of time and will occasionally need some restoration to retain its visual appeal and functionality.

Our Brownstone Restoration Process
We want you to feel completely confident in our ability to restore your brownstone, which is why we would like to take the time to cover our typical repair process. We have put a great deal of time and effort into developing our approach to brownstone exterior restoration. By carefully adhering to the following steps, we are able to guarantee success with all of our projects.
In New York City, the Landmarks Preservation Commission has been established to enforce guidelines for protecting historic buildings. In order to restore brownstone buildings, the appropriate permits must be required to ensure that the work is done correctly and historically accurate. At City Suburb, Inc., we are a qualified company and can assist you with the vetting process for the work you want.
Remove the Damaged Brownstone Surface
Once we have permission to restore your brownstone, we will start by chipping away at the top layer that has been damaged over time. This will uncover the solid and undamaged base, providing us with a blank canvas to begin the restoration process.
Rebuild the Façade with Cement
In order to ensure that our work is sturdy and made to last, we will begin by creating several layers of a stucco-concrete mix. This will be molded into the original shape of your brownstone and then left to cure for four to six weeks in order to reduce permeability and ensure a strong base.
Apply the Final Brownstone Finish
After we have established a firm undercoating, our contractors can get to work on the final finish. We will pay careful attention to match the original texture and color of your brownstone, leaving your surfaces looking brand new again. This stage will also involve carving out the ornamental details that give brownstone its luxurious appearance.
