The Howard Block Building in downtown Port Huron has housed many of the cities small businesses over it's 114-year-old history. The building typifies Victorian commercial architecture, and has undergone many incarnations to become the first in a series of downtown Port Huron buildings to undergo historic restoration. Many of the ornate window cornices had been removed and discarded when the building facade was completely paneled over to "modernize" it. The few cornices that had been left in place provided our craftsmen with a pattern to fabricate new to match the existing - exactly.

The ornate wood cornice could not economically be reproduced. Our sheet metal shop duplicated it using an incredible 26 breaks and 3 rolls in each piece to recreate this cornice. Once soldered together and painted white, it was an exact duplicate of the old cornice at an affordable price.

This cornice is not just ornamentation, it houses the entire built-in gutter system for this building. Large enough for a person to take a bath in, this gutter is hung on heavy iron hidden cradles that are cemented into the brick walls and fastened as in the original construction.
