Cornice Restoration at 200 Salisbury St. - Raleigh, NC
200 South Salisbury Street Raleigh NC
This building was built in 1910. Its original cornice was made of pressed tin. During urban renewal of mid- 20th century, the whole building was clad in aluminum panels. South’s Finest was called upon to recreate the entire cornice. Some of the original tin parts were used to create a model for mold making.
South's Finest also fabricated a replica of the cartouche over the main entrance using an old photo of the building.
This restoration won awards for the architect and contractors.
