Period property renovation specialists
Expert help if you are looking to restore your period property
When renovating a period property it can be all too easy to get things wrong and as a result ruin the character of a property forever.
Whether it is restoring the building to be suitable for modern use or converting the shell of the building into a domestic home, there can be many unforeseen challenges.
Even if you have the look of a property worked out on the outside, getting the elements right on the inside can be equally difficult and just as important. Achieving a sympathetic period restoration look is one thing, but ensuring that all elements are safe and appropriate is another matter altogether.
Make no mistake; renovating a period property is not the same as building a new house or adding on a conservatory. Period property renovation requires specialist skills and a good understanding of the problems that could (and frequently do) lie behind the surface, even if it is still in use.
“As a general rule, the older the building, the more of an unknown factor it can be when renovation begins. With period properties there are a number of areas to look out for that may lead to further complications.”
says Luke Czerpak, from Eaton Electrical.
Eaton Electrical has a wealth of experience in working with the owners of period properties, from Victorian terraces to Georgian mansion houses. We can project manage the entire process, or use our expertise to work on the rewiring of the property.
Unfortunately the renovation of many older properties suffer at the hands of inexperienced builders and contractors. The result can be close to vandalism with unique features ripped out or poorly converted in a way that may spoil the building forever.
