Darlington Terrace Façade Restoration Project1

This Darlington terrace had its balcony enclosed some time in the 70’s. Our client wanted to restore the façade back to its former glory by removing the enclosure and reinstating the original features such as period balustrade and frieze work top and bottom.

Once we demolished the enclosure, it became apparent that the deck main bearer were totally rotted and in need of replacement.

We had to demolish the entire balcony structure and rebuild. We used Spotted Gum on the deck, fixed it down with stainless steel square drive screws and the gave the deck two coats of clear Australian made decking oil.

For the balustrade and frieze work we used sand cast aluminium reproduction pieces sourced from Central Foundry in Mascot. We then had the metal work powder coated in Satin black and installed it.

We also made and installed sandstone capping for the front fence and made a pair of pedestrian gates of the entry.

For this project we did the following:

  • Replaced the corrugated iron roof,
  • Restored the balcony timberwork,
  • Reinstated the balustrade and frieze work,
  • Fabricate a pair of pedestrian gates, and
  • Painted the façade.
