TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Some of you may have noticed men seemingly hanging along the outside of the Vigo County courthouse dome.
These men work for Traditions Group out of Columbus, Ohio.
They specialize in the repairs of statehouses, courthouses, city halls and historic homes.
The county commissioners contracted with them to seal holes in the dome that were likely caused by hail.
Crews start with a primer sealant, and then put a coat of Sheffield gold, which spreads and seals any cracks or holes in the surface.
Then a top coat is added to finish the job.
"First of all, we love what we do. We love bringing back history and making people happy with what we do," said Ike Rader of Traditions Group.
After making repairs to the dome and other parts of the courthouse, crews will then bronze the statue atop the Vigo County Soldiers and Sailors Monument. All of the work should be completed by month's end.
