CAS Façade Gets a Makeover

To protect the CAS building's exterior and repair water damage, masons from Monaco Historical Restoration have been hired to patch up the main steps at 685 Comm. Ave. as well as other damaged areas along the Comm. Ave. façade. The water damage occurs when rain water gets behind the limestone tiles, then freezes and expands. This creates an even bigger gap for water to enter, and the process repeats itself. Limestone patches are being applied to damaged areas along the lower façade. The caulking in between the main steps was replaced with much sturdier limestone grout. The walls have also been given a power wash.
