Architectural Metals

If your architectural metal surfaces have become diminished with dullness, scratching, and other signs of wear, the experts at Stone Restoration Services can refinish them, dramatically improving the appearance of the finish. Since the early 1900s architectural metal has been an ornamental building material for adding a sense of wealth and success. Architectural metal can be found in many commercial buildings, such as, hotels, banks, universities, and offices, as well as high-end residential properties. Our highly trained and skilled technicians can achieve impressive results with copper, bronze, brass, and stainless steel. We restore and maintain a variety of finishes, including satin, mirror, oxidized, patina and directional or non-directional texturing.

Copper

Copper is a base metal that can tarnish, oxidize, or corrode with exposure to moisture. Over time, copper develops a natural patina that some people consider appealing and worth preserving. We can clean, maintain, and protect to preserve the natural patina, if desired. More intensive restoration and refinishing processes will remove the natural patina, and give copper a like-new appearance. Our copper services include:
  • Cleaning
  • Mechanical finishes (non-chemical)
  • Chemical finishes (colored or synthetic patina finishes)
  • Protective coatings, oils, and waxes, including stripping and reapplication

Brass and Bronze

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Bronze is an alloy of copper, tin, and other metals. With proper care, copper alloys can be relatively corrosion-resistant. Our brass and bronze services include:
  • Cleaning
  • Mechanical finishes (non-chemical)
  • Chemical finishes (colored or synthetic patina finishes)
  • Protective coatings, oils, and waxes, including stripping and reapplication
