Cast Iron and Granite Preservation for 1600 W. 7th St. Los Angeles Veneer

Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, 
California, USA

This building was one of the many damaged by fire during the King Riots in 1992. Subsequent repairs had not fared well in the intervening years, and the City’s Historic Resources Dept. had mandated the replacement of these previous repairs.

This cast iron and granite restoration job involved removing and replacing the cast iron window grill sections with matching materials. We also fabricated and installed new granite ‘Dutchman’ repairs in segments. For the curved column faces, we ordered material that was fabricated at the quarry with a curved surface for installation.
