A Look at the 2010 Old House Fair…

This past weekend, we attended the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia’s (PAGP) Old House Fair, an event that brings together homeowners and aspiring owners of older and historic homes with historic preservation specialists from throughout the Philadelphia area. This is the second year in a row we’ve attended the fair, and we always seem to run into many great folks we’ve known for a long time but haven’t seen in a while.

Our company is excited and honored to be involved with PAGP — and to be receiving one of their 2010 Preservation Awards for our work on an extensive window-renovation project at The Fleisher Art Memorial (link to 3/10/10 press release).

At the Old House Fair, our customer, Carolyn West, was also honored with a Homeowner Award from the Preservation Society! You can see her receiving her award in the photos below (she’s wearing the blue blouse). And our own Tamara Myers hosted a workshop for homeowners who were eager to learn more about window projects in historic homes. Tamara has more than 25 years of experience with window issues in older homes.

Check out some snaps from the event:

Myers Constructs, Inc., Wins a Grand Jury Award in Renovation from The Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia!

We’re thrilled to announce that we recently received an award from The Preservation Alliance for a major renovation and repair project at The Fleisher Art Memorial, the nation’s oldest tuition-free art school located on Catherine Street in South Philadelphia.

This project entailed repairing and replacing 83 wooden windows – most of which were nearly a century old – with the goals of maintaining the historical integrity of the buildings, achieving energy efficiencies, and providing a safer and more secure environment for the 17,000 people who visit Fleisher throughout the year.
