1920's Asbury Park, NJ
The Sea Coast National Bank - Corner of Bond & Mattison.

 Built in 1886 it is one of the oldest stone buildings in the city.  In keeping with the spirit of rejuvenation embraced by the present day community, the owners, Bond Street Partners LLC, in 2005, embarked on an ambitious restoration/rehabilitation project.  

In the Spring of 2005 Bond Street Restoration LLC, under the guidance of Joel Monesson  began the task of halting the degradation of exterior architectural elements, and repairing the damage time, and unwise application, of various surface treatments had caused, to the structure. 

The image below was taken in winter of 2009.  All plaster has been removed from the stone, and repairs made where necessary.  All joints in stone, brick, and terra cotta have been raked and pointed, and the surface has received a treatment of Keim Mineral Systems products that will protect and preserve the vulnerable stone.
