Historic Restoration of a Stunning Tudor Style Foyer and Spiral Staircase

In this Shaker Heights, Ohio historic home restoration project we completed a full assessment of exterior and interior issues throughout the front entry and main stairs turret. The assessment, and subsequent restoration, included replacement of the wood shingle roof, radius gutter, stucco and masonry repair, rebuilding of stained glass windows, repair of the front door entry system, painting and more. After making the exterior water tight and completing historically accurate repairs, we then completed interior, large scale plaster repairs which included matching the original texture, tile restoration and painting. The half bath below the stairs was also remodeled and, in order to improve usability of the bathroom, the toilet was repositioned which was done without damaging the original tile.
