​The WeatherSeal Exterior Group  began over ten years ago with the creation of a small exterior restoration business designed to clean and restore properties located primarily at Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia. These property exteriors were suffering from a lack of scheduled maintenance, along with the added degradation from moisture associated with a lakefront environment. Services were implemented to began to clean and restore the exterior of these properties, and to apply coatings to help keep them protected and looking their best.

From those humble beginnings, we grew to serve commercial, industrial, and residential properties in located in Lynchburg, Roanoke, and the entire Central Virginia area. As needs developed, additional services were added, including a specialization in the consulting and restoration of Dryvit/EIFS clad properties. Over time, we have continued to expand our service offerings, through our exclusive BuildCARESystem, which includes additional exterior services including sealant replacement, deck coatings, protective coatings, and more.

​Today, as the WeatherSeal Exterior Group continues to grow, we are still committed to our original founding principles, among them, our commitment to providing the finest exterior restoration services possible, while adding value to you, our trusted customers and partners.

If we can help in any way, just give us a call or drop us an email.  We would be happy to answer any questions you may have, or provide you with a complimentary quote for any of your exterior restoration needs.
