Sculpture Restoration with Stromberg GFRC

Sculptures have long been used as a design element in architecture. They can be inspirational, awe-inspiring or just plain beautiful; they can even be used to commemorate events and honor great deeds and individuals. However, sculptures are also vulnerable to damage caused by weather, time and vandalism. If a sculpture is damaged, it can be very difficult to repair. The best repair jobs completely hide the fact that the sculpture was ever harmed. Stromberg architectural’s pioneering usage of GFRC is exactly the kind of invisible repair you need when restoring a sculpture.

Invisible Restoration with GFRC

GFRC is an amazingly versatile material, and in the hands of a master craftsman, it can do just about anything. When restoring sculptures with GFRC, the restoration artist matches the color and consistency of the GFRC to match the original sculpture material perfectly. Whether the sculpture is marble, granite, wood or even bronze, GFRC can be manipulated to emulate just about any material. Additionally, GFRC can be manipulated like concrete, meaning that it can be smoothed on and shaped. So, the GFRC can serve as a seamless covering that restores the sculpture to its original beauty without compromising the visual integrity of the work.

GFRC Offers Resilient Restoration

Not only is GFRC versatile, it is also resilient. GFRC has proven to be able to stand up to some of the worst punishment mother nature can dole out. It is resistant to erosion and corrosion from wind and rain. It does not swell, shrink or crack when exposed to sweltering heat or biting cold, and even drastic shifts in temperature have very little effect on it. These features make GFRC especially useful for restoring sculptures that are exposed to the elements.
