Location: Goshen, New York
Description: Stone Restoration Project
Types of work: Stone setting, stone pinning, repointing, clock restoration, wood restoration

Details: Nicholson & Galloway completed a comprehensive restoration of this church located in Goshen, New York. Constructed of a shale and sandstone blend, the Church has a 180 foot tower and is the tallest building in Orange County.

Much of the existing stone on the building was delaminating, requiring the installation of over 2,000 stainless steel pins. In addition, the stone restoration consisted of taking down and rebuilding the top fifteen feet of the tower, and cutting and pointing all mortar joints. Approximately 20 percent of the mortar joints required deep grouting to fill voids in the wall.

Four clocks located on all sides of the tower were removed and restored. The clock faces were stripped, consolidated and re-painted in place. All interior wood deck levels in the tower were demolished and replaced with new decks.

Window and door frames were stripped, consolidated and re-painted in place. Stained glass windows in the tower were removed and restored in a studio. New protective glazing was installed in all openings before reinstalling the original stained glass. With the exception of the stained glass, all work was supervised and performed by Nicholson & Galloway's own personnel.
