Historical Preservation & Green Coatings Encasement

Blogs Where Nature Meets Science png

Oftentimes, the building itself is physically unremarkable, although some event of historical importance that occurred in that building makes it significant and justifies it being preserved and classified as Historic. The classification of a building to historical status can include the signing of a significant document, well-known or famous occupants, where they may have made a noteworthy contribution.

Sometimes the building is preserved because it doesn’t look like any other buildings in the surrounding areas. Or that they have survived for a long period of time through historic events such churches, schools, town halls or elaborately decorated private homes. Green Coating Encasement with GEI (GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.) can insure that these buildings are safely preserved so their original character is never erased.

As time goes on, I become more and more involved with properties that are architectural masterpieces. These true works of art need specific attention, making sure that they are protected while maintaining their architectural and historic significance. Part of this is designing the right coating solution on a case-by-case basis. One has to take into account many factors, such as local climate, the potential attack from aggressive storms, constant shifting of extreme heat and cold, historical ornamentation, decoration, trimming, colors and client goals.

Some of these buildings are made with materials that are no longer used or produced, as with certain types of roofing shingles. To remove and replace these materials can completely change the building aesthetics and overall appearance. That is why it is important to take the approach of preserving and maintaining all these materials with a green coating system that protects while also being sustainable and renewable.

Historical preservation can also include dealing with surfaces that contain solid hazardous materials, such as Lead-Based Paint, Asbestos and PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls). These materials can be safely in-placed managed, while maintaining the historic look and integrity of the structure and not altering surfaces using invasive/damaging methods. This is especially important instead of the usual practice of destructively removing and replacing these hazardous materials.

I thoroughly enjoy coming up with the proper coating system that defends all these properties against time and the elements, with the added benefit of learning about their historical significance and the people and organizations that occupied them and their contribution to society.
