The Importance of Restoring Vintage Masonry

Vintage MasonryBaltimore is city that is fraught with history. We were one of the first port cities in America and we are remain the proud home of the Baltimore Inner Harbor. Charm City still lives up to its name with lovely historic areas such as Mt. Vernon, Federal Hill, and Fells Point. Many of the buildings are made of brick and that brick can crumble if not properly cared for. We must care for it because it is part of our history and that history is irreplaceable. We can, however restore it.

Preservation is our duty.

By preserving the masonry of historic buildings we are preserving the lives of those who have come before us. There is something incredibly special about walking through halls that have stood for over a hundred years. You can almost smell the old gas lights and hear the clip-clop of horse hoofs as you walk along the cobble stones of Fells Point. Vintage masonry also provides a stronger sense of community. These are the streets of our ancestors. These are the homes of the amazing people who have struggled before us. We owe it to them to preserve their memory.

Property value can raise.

Historic homes, offices, restaurants, and other buildings offer something that brand new places simply can’t. They’re very much in so to speak and property values seem to be rising. A historic property is one of a kind, so there is a whole lot of value in keeping up with the original masonry. A property that has had fewer replacements is more likely to impress a potential buyer as long as everything remains in good shape. So, rather than replacing the vintage brick with something more modern, just restore it.
