It's getting scary this facade reno


It appears the contractor with the ok of the building owner is infilling the missing brick segments in the arch area of 3034 Dundas St West. with “stucco”. Not nice at all – replacing the bricks would have been a more welcomed choice.

But at least this method will allow for the remediation of this effort in the future.



At least it’s symmetrical and I assume they are going to make an appropriate colour choice to cover the stucco.

If they restore the windows properly this can still be a good restoration project.

Does this mean they might stucco over the whole entire brick facade? Yes it needs restoration, but stucco is not the answer!! Get a good mason in there instead.
