Blind Eye Restoration is a woman-owned, historic restoration contracting company providing a wide range of architectural and art conservation services throughout Central Ohio and the Midwest.
Our blend of forensic consulting, contracting and historic conservation experience makes us unique, and affords us understanding into the overlap between the realms of preservation, design, and construction. In our consults, our recommendations are not only appropriate, but also practical. As contractors we provide services with an understanding of historic building methods, the life cycle and practicality of historic materials, and the most affordable and appropriate ways to approach our projects. The overlapping issues of maintaining historic material during restoration efforts while dealing with modern building expectations and constraints are all met and accounted for equally in our work.
Blind Eye aims to reach clients who have the same passion for the maintenance of their historic buildings that we do, as our core values guide all our historic restoration work:
- To value the health and longevity of historic resources over popular modern construction industry developments.
- To respect the intentions and skill of the original craftspeople and builders
- To maintain as much original material and integrity as possible with every treatment design.
