Turning Your Crumbling Brownstone Buildings into Classical Masterpieces
Brownstone landmarks and buildings are constant reminders of the quintessential charm of New York City. They date back to the 19th century when the city was built with brownstone infrastructure. They remind you of what the city once was and have become an iconic part of its overall infrastructure.

We have worked in many areas of New York City to restore brownstone landmarks, townhouses, and buildings. Our brownstone facade and stoop restoration process includes four main steps:
New York City’s Landmark Preservation Committee has strict guidelines on carrying out restoration and repair work on historic buildings in order to protect them. So, our first step is to ensure we have received permission from the committee and building owners to complete the task.
Luckily, Innovation Construction NY Inc. has cemented a lasting reputation as a group of experienced and specialized workers who only use the best quality materials to flawlessly complete projects on brownstone facade and stoop restoration. For this reason, we won’t have to provide extensive paperwork and will not be thoroughly vetted.
Brownstone is made of tiny particles of sand mixed together with water. This is why the material is prone to considerable damage over time, as water can infiltrate it. After assessing the damage on the brownstone layer, our team of specialists will carefully start scraping away the brownstone’s top layer until they reach the undamaged layer.
In this step, our specialists will begin to build the brownstone facade from scratch. We aim to restore and build a brownstone layer that is not prone to damage and will not deteriorate easily or quickly. Hence, we will apply a protective top coat on the undamaged layer of the building.
Then, we add the scratch layer, where we will add finishing touches and details to make the brownstone facade look similar to the original version. This layer typically includes concrete, which is harder and more long-lasting than the original brownstone. Letting this layer set and cure is key.
We then add a layer of a brownstone in a color that matches the original version. Since it will be applied over concrete, this layer will be quite sturdy. The last step includes adding ornaments and other intricate details to this layer by hand.
