New Jersey State House - Dome

After a successful restoration project in 2000, EverGreene returned to the New Jersey State House in 2022 for the full restoration.
The dome was carefully stripped and the residue removed using lead-safe practices. Next, the stripper was neutralized, a mild acid wash applied, and the surface prepped to bare metal. Once the surface was ready, our decorative painters applied primer, size, and 23.75kt gold leaf.
The regilding of the dome was completed in May of 2022. Our interior work is still ongoing, which includes extensive decorative painting on multiple rooms, as well as replicating historic stencils, faux-bois woodgraining, plaster repair,and lincrusta.
