Brownstone Restoration Specialist Brooklyn

A Brownstone Stoop and Facade Restoration

The Brownstone Specialists?


Why do we call ourselves the brownstone specialists?

At High Tech we offer top quality restoration of Brownstone facades and stoops while adhering to New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission guidelines. We aim for brownstone preservation. Brownstone has two basic characteristics that determine its appearance and performance in buildings: the composition and structure.

Many companies fail to determine the quality of brownstone before starting a project. At High Tech this is our main priority.
INSPECTION:
At High tech the most essential phase in starting any project is the inspection phase. Determining what caused deterioration? The pre-consultant team explores current brownstone condition in order to provide our customers with the finest brownstone repairs. The pre-consultant team explores the level of deterioration and possible causes. Initial investigation involves exploring the color, pattern, surface tooling and previous repairs made.

Possible causes:
* Failure of its cementing matrix (Mortar joints between the stones deteriorate, water finds its way into the interior bedding planes of the stones).

* Exfoliation
* Contour scaling
* Disaggregation
WORKING PHASE:
During this phase the High Tech team gets to work! Essentialities of the working phase depends on proper decision making. This begins with using the correct materials. Many companies in an attempt to save money will use products cheaper in price. The next step involves creating the proper repair mixture, which is the foundation of the project. Incorrect mixtures will result in unsatisfied outcomes. At High Tech our masons have a special composite patching system that has been used for years. When working on a brownstone project color matching is an important part of creating the right composite. Our team conducts a thorough examination of the existing stone in order to make the perfect match. Through surface finishing our experts ensure that the surface mineral grains resemble that of the natural sandstone. Experience, familiarity, knowledge, and education makes our masons the Brownstone experts.

PROTECTION AND MAINTENANCE:
When a project is completed the High Tech team does not disappear. We schedule routine visits and ensure that proper maintenance is taking place. We educate our clients on proper maintenance techniques. A proper maintenance program can prevent deterioration or catch it at its root, and cause necessary repairs. Maintenance is costless but once damages occur they can rip out your pocket ($$$$$$$$$$). That’s why at High Tech we encourage our clients to protect their property offering tips and education!
Inside Scope Tips:
* Start at the top: Maintain your roof to prevent roof leaks from damaging the facade (a water seeper)

*Keep the gutters clean

* Caulking open joints prevents moisture infiltrate around windows, doors, etc

* Vegetation, such as ivy, on or immediately adjacent to stone walls traps moisture and prevents the walls from thoroughly drying out.

* Maintain Flashing: Metal flashings protect ledges, lintels, ornamentation, and other projections that collect and absorb water.

* Repoint as Necessary: Crumbling, loose, or missing mortar joints should be repointed by a qualified mason.

* Use a professional mason to handle the cleaning : A gentle water wash or water and non-ionic detergent wash should be the first cleaning methods attempted. Do not use harsh chemicals!

I recently hired High Tech. Construction crew to restore my brownstone stoops outside my house, also restored my stucco in my backyard and repainted it. The crew did an excellent job my wife and family were really happy. This has been by far most the best investment I’ve ever invested. I thank president Shaiful and his hard working crew, they were always on time, always kept the area clean and neat, couldnt ask for a better team to get the job done. Also, the one thing I appreciated the most was, Mr. Shaiful came personally everyday to check up on his crew and he sure did make everyone happy! Another big thank you Mr. Shaiful and your crew as well, deffinetly looking forward on working with High Tech. Co. again.

Sincerely, John Millers

Anyone could look at the exteriority of my three-story brick façade and it was quite obvious that the bricks needed a lot of work. After meeting with multiple contractors I came across High-Tech Construction Company. I met with the GC one-to-one and he was straight forward and honest in telling me that too many of the bricks were damaged to such a great extent that a repair job would not rectify the damages. He told me that I needed all the bricks removed and replaced with new ones. Before even signing the contract and beginning the project the High-Tech masonry team explained to me what would take place in the following weeks and my options. I was impressed by their thoroughness and interest. Previous contractors that I dealt with were only interested in getting the initial deposit and having the contract signed. Upon initiation of the project I was provided with mid-range samples to choose from. The workers at High-Tech were professional and diligent. They were punctual and respect with my neighbors and family members. Overall I was awed by the great craftsmanship provided.
