- Building covered one entire city block
- Hazmat Historic preservation
- High profile loss
Fragers Hardware Store is a DC landmark and has been a community hub since 1920. The large brick building takes up an entire city block near Capitol Hill and is considered a historic landmark by the city of Washington, DC. In June 2013 Fragers Hardware Store was destroyed by a very large fire that garnered a large amount of media attention. Paul Davis Restoration was entrusted with the large, yet delicate, job of board up, stabilization, and selective demo of this property being careful not to disturb the historical landmark-protected brick facade. Paul Davis Restoration installed a security fence all the way around the building and performed a great deal of hazmat cleanup.
