Preserving the home of a General Motors Pioneer
The historic materials used to build our buildings 100 or more years ago require different treatments than modern materials. Treatments and repairs appropriate for contemporary buildings can at times actually be detrimental to our historic buildings. The maintenance of this 1916 Estate of Charles Stewart Mott requires expertise in restoration, rehabilitation, renovation and repairs. Jackie guides the Estate staff thru the processes of maintaining this historic treasure. In the spring of 2015 re-pointing work will be undertaken as well and replacement trim replacements. H2A architects serves as the Estate’s ‘on-call’ architect.
In preparation of the buildings 100th birthday celebration additional projects are being undertaken to keep this treasure looking great. Recent projects include copper gutter and downspout replacement, slate repairs, and copper roof repairs.
