A Seamless Juncture:  New Construction in a Historic Setting.

When creating and building new masonry structures in Kansas City proper , it is extremely important to make certain that existing ones are complimented. It is vital that the historical character of a property be retained and preserved. The removal of distinctive materials or alteration of features that characterize a property should be avoided.

maurenn

Respect for the original architectural design or architect must remain steadfast. Great care needs to be taken to ensure that new construction shall be compatible with the historic materials, features, size, scale and proportion to protect the integrity of the property and its environment. The new construction must be undertaken in such a manner that, if removed in the future, the essential form and candor of the historic property would be unscathed. Kansas City has a long history of great architects , such as Shepard, Farrar, and Wiser; Alice Walton; Edward Delk; Root and Siemens; Smith, Rea and Lovitt; Howe, Hoit and Cutler; John Van Brunt; Adriance Van Brunt; and Courtlandt Van Brunt, only to mention a few.

Historic Restoration vs. Flipping and Flopping in Kansas City!

At the frenetic pace in which homes and buildings are being remodeled and sold in Kansas City, its troubling that many of these flips eventually turn into flops.  Renovating historic industrial buildings and turning them into condos is a hot trend as pockets of downtown are being sought out by investors for future urban core desiring dwellers.kansas-city-eugene-field

 

Rejuvenation is essential to cities and vital to their renaissance.  And there’s always such excitement walking into a recently renovated home or condominium and soaking in all of the newness. Unfortunately, the bones are often overlooked, especially ones that could be broken. When the brick or stone facade begins to falter, it becomes painfully clear that time and care should have been utilized when the modernization was being implemented.
Restoration, especially historic, takes the process one step deeper. It peels back the layers that are damaged and rebuilds from the property’s true integrity.

The Treasure of Terracotta: Chalk, Charcoal and Clay

The Preservation of Historic Glazed Architectural Terracotta from the medieval associations of tradesmen.

Terracotta was treasured as a design component for centuries because of its durability as a construction material and its beauteous and opulent demeanor. Weighing roughly one tenth as much as stone, terracotta can be molded and fired at high temperatures to a hardness and compactness comparable to that of  brick. As styles evolved and manufacturing costs increased, terracotta was used less often. In the late 1800’s, there were more than 100 terracotta manufacturers in the United States. Today, there are fewer than 10.The scarcity of qualified manufacturers and skilled craftspeople can present threats to the ongoing maintenance and restoration of historic terracotta.terra-cotta

An array of challenges await the restoration contractor , especially when the project calls for historical preservation. Kansas City Masonry/ The Masons Inc. has the experience, expertise and architectural knowledge to cautiously remove the existing historically important elements, record their position in the facade, rebuild the unit if distressed, and work closely with a recognized terracotta manufacturer to fabricate a replica of same dimensional size and glazing finish.

It is critically important to use a contractor who intimately understands all facets of terra cotta in a masonry aspect. Kansas City Masonry is that company.

Stone Foundations in Kansas City: Beauty or a Beast?

Historical Kansas City homes are classified as homes which were built more than 100 years ago. They were erected with stone foundations. These foundations were generally substantial; at least 18″ thick. Being much more sound than all other building materials and methods, stone masonry was the steadfast cornerstone in construction before World War I.

Stone foundation inspection, diagnosis, repair: this article explains Stone Foundations & Walls: How to Recognize & Diagnose Stone Foundation Cracks, Bulges, Movement, or other Stone Wall Damage such as damage due to impact, settlement, frost or water damage, and other causes.

Types of foundation cracks, crack patterns, differences in the meaning of cracks in different foundation materials, site conditions, building history, and other evidence of building movement and damage are described to assist in recognizing foundation defects and to help the inspector separate cosmetic or low-risk conditions from those likely to be important and potentially costly to repair.

– See more at: http://inspectapedia.com/structure/Stone_Foundation_Damage.php#sthash.oB0JvTv6.dpuf

Some Kansas City historic properties’ foundations maintain their true integrity with just normal settlement over time with no discernible cracks or leaks, while others do not fare as well. Materials used for foundations degrade with time, particularly when exposed to the four alchemy elements:  air, water, wind and fire. A brief visual inspection will quickly disclose bowing, bulging, or shifting of the stone foundation. If you find any of these conditions are found, the skills and services of an experienced mason should be utilized.
