Hanover Insurance Group Building
Raymond James Restoration, Inc. has recently begun an expansive restoration project on the Hanover Insurance Group building on Lincoln Street in Worcester. Our masonry specialists will be doing extensive brick replacement and repointing as well as cleaning, caulking and waterproofing.
Founded in 1852, the Hanover Fire Insurance Company opens in Manhattan at Hanover Square. It had difficult financial challenges in its young history, but it sustained its obligations to clients when in 1866 a Portland, Maine fire destroyed 1,800 buildings, when the “great Chicago fire” destroys more than three square miles of the city, and when a fire in Boston burned almost half the city.
Today it is well-positioned for success having expanded its charter to write other lines of business and acquiring multiple companies.

Edgell Memorial Library
Raymond James Restoration, Inc. completed a historical Chimney Rehabilitation on a historical building in Framingham. Edgell Memorial Library was originally built in 1872 to commemorate the valor of the Civil War soldiers from its community. It is one of the few remaining Victorian Gothic style building in the area and anchors the Centre Common of Framingham.
The restoration was a very tedious one, having to label EACH stone as it came off of the stack, so as to replace each in the very exact position they were taken from. The mortar joints were also measured before cut-out could begin, in order to exactly replicate the spacing. The chimney flues had to be specially ordered to match the existing terracotta (clay) ones and the caps were recreated out of mimic ( a material that is used to repair and reconstruct terracotta) in order to match the shape and color of the existing ones.
