Historic Renovations in Pinehurst and Moore County, NC

Some homeowners desire a new, modern home with contemporary detailing. Others prefer an older home with character and charming features that can’t usually be found in 21st century construction. Should you fall into this latter camp, knowing the ins and outs of historical restoration will be very important in maintaining both the aesthetic and actual assessed value of your home. You own a piece of history and will want to protect, enhance and enjoy it, but these homes often require special care and maintenance.

First, what is ‘historical renovation’? The term can be defined as ‘the act of conserving and protecting buildings of historical significance through the process of repair, alteration, and addition while preserving those features that convey historical value’.

Though historical properties can be a bit more work, they offer a multitude of benefits for homeowners. The aesthetic upsides include timeless architecture, classic styling, and other unique features. These older homes have beautiful details, designs and fine craftsmanship that aren’t found in newer homes. Renovating one of these properties can also increase home value and may earn a greater return on value, should you decide to sell the home. Further, historic homes have been shown to sell up to 25% faster than their traditional counterparts.
