We were hired to provide solutions to this former DuPont property in Delaware regarding repair mortars and plasters. This is the place where smokeless powder was improved upon and which helped us in WW1. There's always an interesting story behind every old place we find ourselves visiting. We would love to hear the stories you have behind your vintage building and help you with its refurbishment!
