Otto Baum Company, Inc. today is a leading restoration contractor across the Midwest

While masonry provides a structurally sound method of construction and timeless beauty for a building’s exterior, it still requires maintenance.  Over time even the best built masonry structures will be impacted by environmental factors, which may result in unsightly deterioration of the masonry and water infiltration.  Understanding this reality, Otto Baum Company, Inc. today is a leading restoration contractor across the Midwest.  Our extensive knowledge and craftsmen within the masonry industry allow us to restore masonry structures throughout the areas we serve, including buildings designated as historic.
