Property Maintenance Workshop

Historic Salida Inc., in conjunction with the City of Salida hosted a workshop together on January 17, 2009 in hopes that the information shared would help owners of historic properties make informed decisions concerning maintenance of their property, and when hiring a contractor or tradesperson. Terry Alexander with Stonecraft concentrated on methods of re-pointing, mortar mixtures appropriate for restoration, and replacement vs. restoration. Mike Pershbacher with Older Than Dirt Construction demonstrated “start to finish” wood window restoration, including methods and products used. Below are the handouts from the workshop and a list of tradesmen who attended the workshop.
