Historic Restoration & Renovations
Reclaim the beauty of your home by restoring it to its former glory. Historic restorations effectively take an older home and restore it to like new condition; historic renovations, on the other hand, update and modernize a historic home without destroying the historic appeal. Gerety Building and Restoration has built a reputation as one of the most trusted historic restoration and renovation companies in the Westchester, NY and Greenwich, CT area.
Restoring historic homes isn’t something to be taken lightly and shouldn’t be taken on as a do-it-yourself project. Many of the homes in our area require specific period pieces in order to be properly restored. Some require a delicate touch and some TLC before the restoration or renovation process may begin.
A Word on Historic Restorations and Cost
Historic home renovation costs are very difficult to estimate or offer a ballpark figure without first seeing the home. Please contact us at the numbers or email address listed below to schedule a free consultation at your convenience.
Older homes possess their own unique set of concerns as opposed to their newly constructed counterparts. New homes are built to code and pass all requirements for insurance companies and the like. Older homes must often undergo slight renovations during the restoration process in order to be up to code. Some of these issues and modifications may include:
- Heating and Cooling
- Locating replacement pieces
- Matching surface materials
- Deterioration and rot
