Historical Restoration - Beavertail Lighthouse
New England is home to some of the oldest structures in North America. The rich history of this region can be seen in the buildings of our towns and cities, and residents take pride preserving their early American architectural identity.
With the largest team of certified door technicians in New England, it's not uncommon for GHQ techs to encounter structures 200 years old, and older. As Project Managers are tasked with reconditioning old structures like municipal buildings, schools, factories, and textile mills, we often encounter projects that need to meet modern performance criteria while maintaining historical considerations.
In many historic homes and buildings, uneven and out of plumb jambs and headers are a common obstacle. This can cause the door to hang crooked in the opening and affect performance. After a comprehensive review, our team works to deliver doors that are 100% compliant with the local historic commission and match the existing structure. This means our doors will meet or exceed the architectural historic requirements of the building.
