Historical Limestone Floor Restoration | Newburyport, MA

Mar 6, 2019

At Boston Stone Restoration we love to work on old buildings with lots of history and charm. The Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank is a brick and granite, Colonial Revival-building that was built in 1928 in Newburyport, MA. Designed by Thomas M. James & Co. and built by Leslie R. Porter Co., this building located on the southeast corner of State Street and Charter Street was the second bank building erected in Newburyport for the Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank.

Recently, our team got called in to do some work on their original limestone floors as we’ve excelled at projects like this before. First, the floor needed a good cleaning, so we went over it with a cleaner formulated specifically for limestone. Then, we got to work. The floors had developed a number of small holes over the years due to regular wear. We filled those in with color – matched grout and then polished the floor to a beautiful shine thus improving the appearance while keeping the original flooring in tact.

The client was thrilled with the results, and we were happy to help bring a part of the beauty back to a historical building. Do you have a floor in need of some professional TLC? Look no further than our team here at Boston Stone Restoration! Call for a quote today.
