Rehabilitation of Monumental Protected Buildings
Our company specializes in the restoration of facades and roofs for buildings that are protected as cultural heritage.
The owners of the building, which is protected as cultural heritage, must obtain the consent of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia (ZVKDS), where all the guidelines for restoration are described in detail, and prepare a high-quality inventory of the works within the scope of the rehabilitation, before starting work. Usually, an inspection by the experts of the restoration center is also necessary for a qualitative assessment of the condition
In order to prepare a high-quality inventory of works, we must determine the actual state of damage to plasters (base and structural plasters, cap and intermediate cornices, frames, pilasters, columns, stucco…), the causes of these damages (sloping, dampness of the walls due to non-insulation of the foundation walls) during the inspection of the facade , subsidence and the like) and determine the method of rehabilitation with suitable special materials, where necessary, and wherever possible, we use materials that are as similar as possible to the appearance and composition of the original ones. We also determine the condition of the joinery, where we can decide to restore the old windows (replacement of damaged wooden parts, repair of fittings, sealing, painting) or to replace them with complete copies of the previous ones.
We must also inspect the condition of the roof, structure, roofing and plumbing products, both on the roof and on the facade. Last but not least, the chimneys also belong to the renovation, because we have to check their usefulness, and if necessary, we also remove them. Due to wear and tear, we often determine the static stability of balconies, and if necessary, we make a static calculation for additional reinforcement or a complete replacement of the structures. For a perfect final look, we pay special attention to the production of all the underground wiring that is usually visible in older buildings (electronic wiring, cable wiring, telephony), and all advertising boards, signboards, lampshades, flag consoles and other external accessories must also be manufactured and replaced. , and we have to imagine the entire renovation in terms of a holistic image.
