This project was a replacement of flooring in a building over 100 years old. The challenges included working with the Church that held the importance of keeping the history and design intent from a Catholic Seminary that began construction in 1869. We also had deteriorated subfloors , high moisture issues, and two flights of stairs that had to be completely rebuilt while maintaining the appearance of exposed tread , riser and spindles.
The Church , GC , and Architectural firm all are extremely happy with the end results.
