Building Restoration, Caulking, & More in St. Paul, MN


If you’re like us, you have a tremendous appreciation for the architectural history of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul.  From the gingerbread-laden Eastlake and Queen Anne-styles of the 1880s —what most people think of today as "Victorian" architecture -- to the bungalows of the 1910 - early 1920s to the 1930s architectural Modernism reflected in the flat-roofed Benjamin Lippincott House and the Malcolm and Nancy Willey House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright that remain today in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis.  These historic homes and unique buildings add to the beauty of our community and we must care for them in order to preserve our history for future generations.

If you are fortunate enough to own or manage one of these notable homes or businesses, Squeegee Squad can assist you in building restoration. 

Does your brick have efflorescence?  Efflorescence is that whitish staining on stucco, concrete and masonry.  It’s caused by salt deposits and often appears during humid seasons, like summers in Minneapolis.  The efflorescence tends to increase in intensity after rainy seasons.  Improper cleaning of the efflorescence from your building can cause discoloration of the brick and may also degrade the mortar.  Squeegee Squad has a staff of trained experts to eliminate the efflorescence from your stucco, concrete or masonry.  

Are your aluminum window frames looking dull or faded?  Do you have other anodized surfaces that are stained and in need of restration?  If so, give us a call at (952) 835-0011.  Our specially formulated cleaning products are sensitive enough to not cause damage while strong enough to restore the color and luster of your window frames

 

We use the proper products and solutions in combination with our skilled techniques!

Those who purchase a historic home, church or building often struggle with cleaning the windows.  Even Squeegee Squad’s method of cleaning windows in modern homes and businesses doesn’t work on century-old buildings.  This is because windows are made of compound materials like lime, soda and silicates. When water run off – especially from rain runoff from precast and masonry building surfaces – sits on the glass for any length of time, it causes mineral deposits to form.  And if the mineral deposits sit on the glass for any length of time, they actually adhere to the glass.  In order to successfully clean the windows, we must first identify the stains and then we’ll offer efficient methods to restore the surface.

 

We can remove organic and chemical stains.

Like other stains in these grandiose dwellings, Squeegee Squad is often called to help homeowners and historians identify and resolve organic or chemical stains.  Using our experience in the high-rise window washing industry we can access, clean, and restore your building exterior as well as your windows.  We understand that building restoration is a specialized service that requires strict attention to detail.

If you’re experiencing water penetration, we also offer caulking services.  Give us a call today to discuss your building restoration needs in the Minneapolis area.
