Ohio's Master Craftsmen in Building Envelope Restoration
Western Specialty Contractors helps you take the guesswork out of building envelope maintenance and repairs in a way that lets you provide more value to your clients.
Since 1915, Western has stood by dedication to quality craftsmanship. Family-owned, the company has evolved to become America’s largest specialty contractor in masonry, concrete, waterproofing and facades restoration. Our Cleveland office has served customers throughout Ohio since 1995.
Although our office is located in Cleveland, we regularly travel to cities like Pittsburgh, Columbus, Detroit and more to help property owners and managers make their exterior building maintenance more cost effective.
Concrete is economical and durable — the backbone of modern construction. But time, water, and weather take their toll and diminish its strength.
Waterproofing & Coatings
From below grade waterproofing to deck coatings to roof coatings, any waterproofing system is only as effective as the caliber of installation.
Parking Garage Restoration
An ineffective maintenance routine on a parking structure can quickly lead to costly repairs and restorations that can disrupt tenants.
Caulking & Sealant Replacement
Left unchecked, water intrusion can damage structural elements and shorten the useful life of buildings, parking garages, and plaza decks.
Brick, Block, Stone & Terra Cotta Restoration
The materials that give masonry structures their character and beauty are vulnerable to age, moisture, pollutants, building movement, and deferred maintenance.
Historical & Preservation Restoration
We can restore the exterior features regardless of composition or age without damaging either the building or its historical charm.
