First Presbyterian Church
Brockville, Ontario, c 1879

This impressive stone structure, that has the tallest steeple in the Thousand Islands, needed to have about 15% of its ceiling removed because plaster was loosening from the underlying wooden lath.

Wire lath was adhered to the original wooden lath and deteriorating areas were re-plastered with a traditional scratch, float finish. All the wooden capitals and corbels were repaired and gilded with 23k gold leaf. A stunning colour scheme was completed based on a democratic vote by the congregation. Testimonial.
