This beautiful home in Piedmont, CA has survived in earthquake country for 100 years. While most of the stone facade was in great shape it suffered from severe cracking and deterioration on the porch columns. The project involved carefully removing and preserving the original stones and then replacing the rotting redwood posts with metal beams. The stone column was carefully replaced while being retrofitted with modern reinforcement techniques tying the stones with wires and anchoring them to the column. Final finishes ensured a perfect match with the original stonework. A magnificent craftsman entrance to welcome guests for another hundred years.
