What are your building’s issues and how are we going to fix them? And how can we transform the performance of your building?”
When it comes to Aesthetics, Sto offers a variety of surface, color and texture options, ranging from stone, metal, glass, and wood to highly textured or extremely smooth finishes.

They consult on color and material options and provide color renderings to help determine the most appealing aesthetic options.
Transforming a building through the A.R.T. of reStore can have impacts well beyond appearance. Existing buildings account for up to 75 percent of a major city’s greenhouse gas emissions. Restoring these buildings with a fully engineered system from Sto provides an airtight envelope with continuous insulation, transforming them into energy efficient buildings that can attain Net-Zero and Net-Positive energy performance. As governments turn their focus toward climate protection policy, the need for deep energy retrofits of existing buildings will only grow.
With concerns about climate change and carbon emissions from the construction of new buildings increasing, it is becoming recognized that restoration of our existing building stock is critical.
The A.R.T. of reStore delivers a comprehensive solution to renovate existing building facades and transform our built environment into aesthetically beautiful, high performing buildings that will last for future generations.
