Case Study - Private Residence 2

The owner of this historic row house called upon DT Mistick & Co. when the time came for a much needed facade rehabilitation. To return its façade to a historic appearance, Mistick stripped the façade of decade’s worth of paint layers. With the original brick now exposed, mortar joints were pointed and the bricks were power washed. New wood windows were fabricated and installed to improve energy efficiency while keeping with the historical nature of the façade.

Mistick worked with an architectural millwork company to fabricate a new custom designed mahogany door, adding to the facades character and presence. Other work around the door included the installation of new light fixtures, repairs to the masonry stoop, carpentry repairs, and a new paint scheme selected by the owner.

Interior work included a new mosaic tile floor in the entry, a new interior door to match the exterior door, and parging the basement walls. The façade of 1826 Wharton Street now stands with much distinction in the heart of Pittsburgh’s busy Southside neighborhood.
