Court Room Decorative Plaster Ceilings

Ceiling Restoration

Decorative Plaster Ceilings of the Court Rooms located in U.S. Postal Service Building

Newark, NJ

Both of these ceilings suffered severe water damage. Built in 1936 of painted plaster, the ceilings were 25 feet high. This along with previous attempts at repairs made the work challenging.

Applied Treatment

First at hand was the removal of old repairs and stabilization. Molds were taken and new pieces cast to replace damaged areas as well as filling and replastering of surfaces. To finish the pieces colors were matched for painting and then the final touches of gilding the necessary areas.
