After restoration work is complete, the restored areas should blend seamlessly into the building and not stand out. The goal is to match the original appearance. Not to have a patchwork of new areas set against old. At Ganem Contracting, we are experts at matching joint color and texture. We take the time to locate brick closest to the existing brick. Our masons are skilled at replicating historic detailing and we work with owners, architects, and engineers to achieve the desired results.
