The Unique Challenges of Heritage Home Renovations

Heritage homes are treasures of architectural history, often featuring intricate details, unique layouts, and materials that are no longer commonly used. Renovating such homes presents several challenges:

  1. Preservation of Historical Integrity: It’s crucial to retain the historical elements that define the character of your home.
  2. Modernization: While preserving history, the home must also be brought up to modern standards of comfort and functionality.
  3. Regulations and Restrictions: Heritage homes are often subject to strict regulations regarding what can and cannot be altered.

We like to respect the past and the history of your home, whilst breathing new life into the walls. Working with builders, makers and trade who share the same outlook, we thoroughly enjoy the challenges of working with heritage and older homes.
