DJM is performing the wood window restoration on R55 as well as installing new storm windows, and new windows and storm windows on R16.
Featured restoration projects from across Ontario.
This project included the restoration of 16 heritage wood windows on the north, east and south facades. It was a challenging project given the original state of the windows and what was required to bring them to a finished standard.
D J McRae Contractors was proud to work on this National Historic Site that was purchased by Enerals Griffin, an African-American immigrant in 1834. The home remained in the Griffin family until 1988 when it was purchased by the Hamilton Region Conservation Authority. DJM was contracted by the City of Hamilton to provide replica wood shutters and a wood storm door to protect the historic building from vandalism and damage.
DJM was brought into this project when it was discovered that the entire rectory rubble foundation required extensive masonry restoration. Helical ties were used to tie the wythes together in order to withstand the hydrostatic pressure of the foundation grouting. All deep voids were backpointed and repointed, and some rubble areas were completely rebuilt.
