Historic preservation of the Bay Area’s many architecturally significant Victorian and Queen Anne homes requires the careful removal, categorizing, storage, and replication of all the ornate moldings, custom doors, true divided-light windows, and elaborate exterior trims such as dentil blocking, corbels, copper, flashings, astragals, corinthian tapered columns, and turrets. Each preservation project is unique, and capable craftsman are in short supply.
Krueger Bros. has the experience, expertise, creativity, and patience needed to restore these priceless Bay Area icons to their original splendor.
Built in 1903, this custom 2-unit Victorian in the heart of San Francisco sustained serious fire damage. Reconstruction to the front exterior included Corinthian tapered wood columns, custom corbels, decorative custom trim including an entry hood, radius wood sash, dentil blocking, custom wood trim, and siding.
Each flat contained 11 rooms with 12-foot ceilings throughout. Interior restoration included custom 8-ft doors with operable overhead transom windows, custom wood entry stairs and handrails, 1" x 4" fir flooring , 10-foot room dividers, and topped off with a custom hand-carved Carrera marble fireplace.
There are very few Bay Area builders that could perform the work needed to fully restore this architecturally significant building.
