Greenhouse Restoration

Looking to renew the whimsical charm of an old Lord and Burnham, Metropolitan, American, Pierson, King, Hitchings, Foley, or Lutton Conservatory? Let Rough Brothers guide you through a historic conservatory restoration. We have the knowledge and experience to restore your derelict greenhouse from its poor condition state to its original better than new condition.

We have recreated many of the original greenhouse manufacturers’ glazing bar profile in aluminum like the Lutton Solar V-Bar, the Pearson U-Bar, all of the Lord and Burnham glazing bars and are the leader in greenhouse restoration. In 1988 Rough Brothers acquired Lord and Burnham’s drawings, details, and equipment adding to our tools to deliver historical accurate components for restoration of the classic historically significant conservatories.

Rough Brothers is the leader in monumental conservatory renovations, recreations, and construction. Let our team of experienced designers, engineers, manufacturing, and construction build, or rebuild, your crystal palace.

At many major institutions, physical plant maintenance departments are responsible for maintaining the plant growth facilities. While these groups are experienced in typical building systems, they often do not have the skills or resources to properly maintain a plant growth facility. Greenhouses and all of their working parts require a knowledge base vastly different from that of other buildings on campus. That is where we come in.

Rough Brothers has the knowledge and experience to handle your facility's maintenance needs.
