Repairing A Canadian Temple Facade

The facade of the Edmonton Alberta Temple is currently undergoing repairs to correct an issue with how the marble cladding was sealed. The issue allowed moisture to soak through to the adhesive, which caused dark spots to become visible on the marble surface.


Finishing Touches in Bountiful

Art glass has returned to the steeple of the Bountiful Utah Temple, and scaffolding is coming down following a lengthy renovation project. The temple remained open while crews worked to remove rust and improve airflow around the temple’s spire.
