Repointing in process at Princeton University
During a previous site visit, our partner Joseph Dugan, Inc. was in the process of repointing the stone masonry of Witherspoon Hall at Princeton University, a dormitory building built in 1879. Repointing is the process of replacing the external part of mortar joints in masonry construction. Over time, the joints between the masonry deteriorate. This ribbon joint repointing is part of Phase I of a multi-phase full façade rehabilitation project of Witherspoon Hall. We’re always impressed with Dugan’s skill and attention to detail!
