Lewiston Public Library

Masonry Restoration of Granite Walls


As dictated by the Carnegie Corporation, the Lewiston Public Library has undergone two major renovations since opening so many years ago.  One occurred in 1996 and the other in 2003.  Recently Hascall & Hall was part of an exterior facelift on this gorgeous granite structure.

About the Lewiston Public Library

As with most all City governed work, there was a mandatory pre-bid meeting in May of 2013. Hascall & Hall was awarded the project on June 21st, 2013.
The work we performed for the library was a very straight forward exterior masonry rehabilitation of the granite stone walls. This type of project consists of cleaning and re-pointing the exterior masonry stone façade, re-caulking of windows and doors as needed, painting exterior ornamental wood, rehabilitation of the entry steps as needed and other incidental work required to satisfactorily complete the project as outlined in the plans and specifications provided by the City of Lewiston.

In this case, we were also asked to furnish and install a method for safe and friendly “pigeon control”. Although one of nature’s creatures, they can wreak havoc on structures. We also caulked and painted the green windows of the North side of the building, provided some additional cleaning of the granite stone walls.

The Hascall & Hall crews were mobilized on July 22nd, 2013 and completed the project on August 24th, 2013, on time and within budget.
