Heritage or period home renovations can be incredibly rewarding but often come with special challenges. How well your builder handles these challenges is critical to ensuring that the classic beauty of your period home gains a new lease of life. We love heritage home renovations because the values of individuality, durability and quality are at the core of our approach to building.
So why should you talk to us? Here is our list of the reasons why.
With period home renovations you need to apply the same levels of integrity that the original builders did. These include specialist or rare skills such as slate roofing, traditional brickwork, putting a new doorway in a heritage wall, heritage plastering, use of pressed metal panels and traditional timber finishes. All work completed by Calm Living Homes is overseen by a Comprehensive Building Analyst and Advisor who ensures every period home renovation is completed to the highest standard.
We know the specialist suppliers that can remanufacture or supply everything you need for a heritage renovation. This might be anything from double hung window when an original may be too far gone, to finding or remaking a heritage tile or matching a fabric or a paint colour.
This means knowledge of the traditional building techniques and the ability to reproduce these to equal or better than the standard of the original builders.
The look of a heritage home is key to the character of the area and councils are looking more closely than ever at potential projects to make sure that your project complies with their regulations. We make sure that all planning for your heritage home extension takes account of these factors so an issue is unlikely to arise. If it does, we have the experience to make sure it is resolved quickly and inexpensively.
We are a quality builder that offers a personal service and an individual home that you won’t see anywhere else. What comes with that is you deal directly with the owner of our business so communication is clear and the experience enjoyable.
