Conservation & Restoration

Hayles and Howe takes pride in our vast knowledge of restoration and conservation of historical buildings all around the world. Your building is a piece of history celebrating an era and we want to assist you in returning it to its original glory.

Our 25 years of experience in the United States have provided us with the knowledge of American historical architecture needed to repair, renovate, recreate and touch up your piece of American history.Our team values the rich history your building holds and will work with you to make sure that history is preserved. A historical plaster specialist will survey your building and provide you with a full report to suggest ways to breathe the life back in to your plaster. From years of working on public and private buildings we have learned to work under tight schedules and budgets. We provide you with the best work under the trickiest of circumstances.

Along with restoration of plaster architectural elements, we also work with scagliola (a pigmented, faux plaster finish originating in Italy). We have a pool of accomplished scagliola artists from England and America as well as a staff artist who works in our Baltimore studio. You can be assured their skills will make your scagliola shine as a dazzling feature of your building.
