What’s The Best Approach For Updating Your Historical Home?

Are you ready to invest in the historical home of your dreams? If you decide to pour your time and resources into an old gem, you’ll need to determine whether you want to renovate or restore the house. A renovation would involve updating all of the spaces in the home, whereas a restoration would return the home as closely as possible to its original condition with some necessary updates. Elevated Roofing and Siding can partner with you to either restore your home to its antiquarian charm, or completely update and modernize it.


Renovate Your Historical Home

If you would like to renovate your home, our experts can update your plumbing and electricity, as well as remodel any rooms that need a new look with new fixtures. We can give you a brand new kitchen and bathrooms, and even make the home more energy efficient. Older homes tend to have a dated, closed floor plan that no longer works for most families. If that is the case with your home, we can rearrange the floor plan to make it more open and flow in a way that makes sense for your needs.


Restore Your Historical Home

If you would like to restore your home as close to the original version as possible, we can handle that as well. We can preserve the integrity of the design and materials that were used in the original construction of your home to rehabilitate all of its components. We could work with your architect’s plan to ensure that all of the updates are as authentic as possible to the period in which it was built. Trust our team with your piece of history, and let us show you the potential waiting to be revealed.

Choose What’s Best For You

You’ll need to determine which approach is best for you and your household, based on your design preference and budget. Restoration typically requires more due diligence and possibly even the assistance of an architectural historian or your local historical commission. These experts can identify the appropriate materials and basically just help guide the process. Elevated will walk through your options with you at our initial consultation so that you can make an informed decision to start this endeavor.
