The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is seeking contractors for exterior preservation and restoration at Pennsbury Manor in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This country estate is a reconstruction of Pennsylvania’s founder, William Penn’s home, where he resided from 1683-1701.

The reconstruction of this manor was first conducted by the Pennsylvania Historical Commission through mapping, archeology and document research in the 1930s, and was officially opened to the public in 1939. Exactly 30 years later, Pennsbury Manor was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is seeking contractors for exterior preservation and restoration at Pennsbury Manor in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This country estate is a reconstruction of Pennsylvania’s founder, William Penn’s home, where he resided from 1683-1701.

Bids are due for this project by May 31.

Scope of Work 

The awarded contractor will be responsible for the cleaning and coating of historic structures and site features for up to 23 buildings. The work includes the repair, repointing and replacement of existing building envelope features; the stripping, priming and recoating of painted wood surfaces; and the replacement of various doors, windows and shutters. All work for this project is to be performed with the assumption that all coated surfaces contain lead. Asbestos-containing caulking removal will also be required where found in exterior conditions.

All coating applications should be finished to match existing or historical paint analysis by the manufacturer. Where purified linseed oil paint is indicated, use only linseed oil-based materials, which are compatible with each other, for cleaning and preserving wood, glazing, priming and coating.

When cleaning wrought iron surfaces, hand-tool, power-tool and abrasive methods are permitted until all paint has been successfully removed. Repainting of these iron surfaces shall be done immediately after cleaning to prevent exposure and subsequent corrosion.

For cleaning wood surfaces, the contractor is first to remove all loose or rotted wood, in addition to existing or damaged coatings. Following cleaning, an epoxy system may be applied to all damaged wood surfaces that are not scheduled to be replaced. Wood surfaces may then receive either an alkyd primer and oil-based topcoat or an alkyd primer and exterior latex coating applications.

Owner-approved brands include Muralo Company, Sherwin-Williams and Allback.
