Laczko Studio Inc. takes pride in our vast knowledge of restoration and conservation of historical buildings, residential homes, hotels, lobbies and restaurants in New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Your building is a piece of history celebrating an era and we want to assist you in returning it to its original glory. Our 25 years of experience have provided us with the knowledge of historical architecture. If needed we can repair, renovate, restore and recreate your piece of American history. Our team values the rich history your building holds and will work with you to make sure that history is preserved. We provide you with the best work under the most complicated circumstances. We offer to our customers plain or ornamental plaster crown, cornice or cove molding repair, restoration or replacement for interior design.
Plaster is incredibly durable however over decades of shifting structures and water intrusion damage may occur. Plaster often times can discolor, crack and even dislodge from its surface. Simple plaster repair to its original state is a cost saving solution as an alternative to replacing it. There are several methods to achieve the desired look. As skilled artisan (restorer) we can repair ornamental molding with careful patching and sculpting. If the plaster is beyond repair we can remove an existing section to create a ‘match to existing’ plaster crown, cove or cornices. We will then cast the mold in plaster to a slightly longer piece than needed and fit it into the missing section. Professionally restoring plain or ornate plaster molding in order to preserve marvelous details in residential home or historical building is for your enjoyment and for future generations.
Regardless if it is your residential home or historical building.
Gypsum Plaster material not only allows for starker and finer designs but it will last for generations. Finally unlike other decorative materials such as wood or plastic, the plaster moldings offers a seamlessness that does not crack, does not shift or shrink with changes in temperature and humidity, it is timeless!
The Gypsum plaster is a Non Toxic, Non-Hazardous and Non-Combustible!
