Home Restoration with a Focus on the Historical

When you are repairing or remodeling an old home, the approach you take may depend on your goals and how you view the home. If you want to use the home as a vintage-style shell in which to house your modern taste, then you will want to do a more standard type of remodel to accommodate a high-tech lifestyle and incorporate contemporary features.

However, if you view the home’s pedigree as an integral part of the structure, you may want to do more of a home restoration. This is where you make all necessary repairs, of course, and do what is necessary to make the home safe and up-to-code, but also keep as many of the original elements and touches as possible. This could include using originals materials (or at least the closest thing that’s currently available within your budget).

Home restoration tends to focus on the nostalgic element, with a goal of bringing the home back to its original glory and recreating the look and feel it had when it was built.

Once you’ve decided on a home restoration, you need to make sure your contractor understands your vision and has experience with similar projects. At RW Remodeling, we’re experts in home restoration and would be honored to help restore your property to its full potential.
