Although heritage listed homes can be a beautiful place to live in, they can also be expensive to keep maintained, especially if you let them get too rundown. The key is to restore and maintain them before they get too far-gone. Clem Carpentry understands the limitations and regulations in the restoration of heritage listed homes and can help you understand what you can and cannot do.
Your local council are also a good source of information about heritage houses and regulations that surround them. Depending on the restrictions, we can work within these to ensure you are not contravening any rules, whilst giving you the finish you want. The key to being successful is to listen to what you want, research the regulations, as well as doing considerable research on the era of your house and what features it would have had when it was first built. This process can be a bit slower than an ordinary build or extension, however the results really will speak for themselves in the end. We try to work efficiently, however we don’t rush heritage restorations, given their complex nature, we like to ensure they are done right the first time.
Sometimes, modern renovations or building materials can be counter-productive to the longevity of your house. It is important to use the right materials for the job at hand, and we can ensure this is taken into consideration when working on your heritage home. In addition, we understand the techniques and workmanship that went into these buildings when they were first built, ensuring we can use these same techniques to restore them for you. If you have a heritage listed house and would like some more information about how we can help you, please call us on 1300 40 431 and have a discussion about it.
