In Florida there are more than a few Condos (more than 6 Million condo entities), and the condo associations are often required to repair any existing cast stone in common areas. We thought we would share a video taken of the top of a multi story condo building in the Fort Lauderdale area.
In the video below you can see the alarming state of the cast stone balustrade after years in the Florida weather. Please note, we did not make or install this stonework.
You can clearly see that the wind is blowing these spindles around. In this particular case we recommend full replacement as repair of this cast stone due to deterioration.
We are not trying to shame anyone here, we are just pointing out that this could happen at your condo.
With a full replacement by a Cast Stone Institute Certified manufacturer, any stone we install is under a 10 year warranty as part of the institute standard.
Normally condo concrete repair is a structural affair, however when there is decorative stone to repair or replace we are happy to work with general contractors and engineers to replace inferior or failing stone.
Please contact us for your needs for cast stone restoration, we have ample experience with cast stone condo repair as well as historical cast stone restoration
