The Hissom Wood Workshop is a custom woodworking and historic restoration portion of our general contractor business. We can perform both new woodworking projects and historic preservation of the woodwork in older buildings.
Just call us if you don’t see your project idea specifically mention here but, some of the woodwork projects we are most commonly asked to do are window restoration, door restoration, architectural woodwork restoration, and custom furniture/cabinetry.
It’s not uncommon to experience rotting wood or weather damaged woodwork in older or historic homes. Finding the right wood workshop who can recreate these ornate designs can be difficult. At Hissom Roofing & Construction we have been honing these skills for over 60 years. Your woodworking project is in good hands with us.
Correct window restoration is vital to any historic building renovation. Their building profile and proportions are as essential to your structure’s original appearance. This also includes elements such as the cornice, siding, and trim which may also need restoration
Although historic windows have sometimes been removed and replaced because of energy efficiency needs, our window conservation process can make old windows function nearly as efficiently as modern replacements. And, we can do this while retaining the look and authenticity of your original historic facade.
We offer comprehensive wood window restoration & conservation services. This includes paint removal, epoxy consolidation, frame repair, sash repair and conservation, sill repair, glazing and weather stripping.
WOOD DOOR RESTORATION
The front door is the first thing guests see when they enter your historic home or building, and if you wait too long to restore it, it may need to be completely recreated. And, that almost always costs more than restoring it.
Cracks in the wood and finish allow weather to creep in and damage your door. When the door’s finish fails, it’s like having an open wound. To save your beautiful door and entry unit, the restoration must be done properly. This will protect it for many more years to come.
Also, the condition of your front door speaks volumes about the upkeep of your entire home. Given the expense of a replacement door, a quality restoration job will protect the investment of your historic door for years to come. And, for much less than the cost of a completely new one.
We would love to show you just how affordable a quality finish can be. We’ll help with the color selection and recommend the right processes for your situation. We custom mix our colors to match any wood color you may have in your home. When we finish, it will be done right.
