Things You Should Restore In Your Period Property
In every period property restoration, the building will always be thoroughly inspected to know which exact repairs it will need.
As for the inspection and property refurbishment tasks, our advice is to leave it to the professionals, as your house’s old fabric may be delicate and fragile. If you aren’t careful, you might do more harm than good when investigating or repairing your home on your own.
A period restoration company will focus on identifying the floors, walls, doors, and windows which show the most signs of damage or deterioration. They will carefully repair these parts while still retaining your house’s original style.
Their building restoration services will also involve searching for structural issues, draughts, or ventilation issues in fireplaces – if your home has one – and efficiently fix and restore them.
Joists will also be plastered and maintained, although it might take some time to look for them as they can be hidden by the house’s ceilings. Brick pointing and cleaning may also be necessary.
When it comes to your decorating your house, a specialist can help you uncover and repair plasterwork to get back its original charming appearance. Even ornaments made of brass will shine again!
Plan For Your Period Property Restoration
If you have already decided to restore or renovate your home, then you should prepare thoroughly first! Doing so will make the home refurbishment and renovation tasks much easier for you and your chosen period property restoration specialist.
First, consider getting a floor plan made of your house: you can even draw one yourself. You can write down the number of rooms your house has, as well as their sizes.
When it comes to the walls, try to distinguish structural ones from studwork and plasterboard. Removing structural walls may involve additional costs and work compared to removing stud walls. If you have damaged brick walls, you may want to consider using London repointing and restoration services.
As for complying with the law and regulations, you should be aware of which restoration and renovation jobs require planning permissions.
If your period house is a listed building, you may require planning permission depending on the London restoration tasks you want to accomplish, such as re-planning the layout of the house or taking out walls.
If you’re looking for the best period property restorers and renovators in the industry, we are just one call away! We can provide your property with the best treatments and solutions for your better home.
