Trinity Church

Trinity Parish Church is a classic rusticated sandstone church, completed in 1891. SMR was asked to develop a scope of work both for restoration and future maintenance.

Program

Once the planning and investigation process had been completed, restoration work began, which included using historically accurate lime putty mortar to replace the harder mortar used in a previous restoration, which had caused the sandstone to break up over time. The masonry was cleaned, repaired, and tuck-pointed. Other work included replicating the missing or deteriorated stone crosses, replacing the steeple roof with salvaged cedar, restoring belfry tower louvers and cupola, and window repairs. SMR also replaced the yellowed stained glass protection with new material, repaired areas where there was water intrusion, and performed structural repairs.
