These before and after photos show off KC Restoration’s recent work on a WWII veterans’ memorial plaque for Congregation Ohev Sholom in Prairie Village. Technicians refinished the brass and applied dark relief to the background, revitalizing a beautiful commemoration to the servicemen.
Happy 1st day of school to all the students and teachers starting the fall semester at the Kansas School for the Deaf here in Olathe, KS!
Over the summer break, KC Restoration’s team had the honor of getting to work on your campus when we donated our metal refinishing and coating services to help make improvements to the campus. We are so proud to have such an exceptional school right here in our community that we were moved to support in the best way that KC Restoration can: beautifying the metal accenting KSD’s campus. These photos show some of our work coating fixtures worn by weather and exterior conditions, as well as refinishing signage and plaques to bring the beauty of the bronze and metal to the forefront.
Alongside getting to meet some of the outstanding staff helping to deliver the high-quality education that KSD is now known for, we were surprised to learn of the deep years of history that have made the school we know today. KSD officially opened all the way back in October 1861, making it the oldest state education institution in the state! We hope the school year ahead brings many more moments of wonder, connection, and accomplishment to make it a hallmark year in KSD history!
Want to find out what KC Restoration has been up to recently? Check out these before/after photos of our technicians’ work in Ottawa.
In getting Forest Park’s pool ready for the upcoming summer crowds, Ottawa decided to tackle the metal restoration of two bronze signs detailing the history of the municipal swimming pool and the people who helped make the city’s second pool a reality in the 1960s.
As can happen with metal exposed to the wear and tear of Kansas’s weather conditions, the bronze dulled and green oxidation discolored the plaques as you can see in the before images. KC Restoration’s refinishing returned the beauty to the metal and the paint relief applied to the background really makes the bronze lettering pop.
As Ottawans begin heading to the fun and sun of the pool beginning in just a few weeks on May 25th, we hope you approve of the updated look and dedication of the city and recreation commission team who continue to make Forest Park’s pool such a wonderful place for community to gather and enjoy the summer!
