Each era is defined by unique characteristics, from the overall architectural design to the colour of bricks and the style of windows. Because of their uniqueness, a careful approach is required to maintain, restore, and renovate period properties, ensuring these historic buildings remain for many years to come.

However, too many period properties are completed by unskilled tradespeople. Unfortunately, many period property renovation projects focus on budget, leading many to hire the cheapest available workers that may not have the necessary skills and knowledge to professionally restore the property.

  • What is a Period Property?
    Period Properties are the name given to properties which were built during a specific time period, and therefore tend to follow particular architectural design that was in-vogue at the time.
  • Are Period Properties listed buildings?
    They can be, but there is no guarantee that Period Properties are listed buildings; many times, that is simply not the case. It will depend on the age and the significance of the building itself.
  • Can I modify Period Properties?
    What you can and cannot do is often as much down to the structure as any legal issues that need to be worked around. We will happily look this over with you during any consultation process.
  • How do I know if I own a Period Property?
    Typically, it will have a bespoke kind of name to the house such as Victorian, Georgian, or even Edwardian – these are often Period Properties as they hail from a very particular era of time.
  • Can I add value to my Period Property?
    Many times, visible structural damage or other limits can make it hard to get maximum value for such a beautiful property. We can look to make changes to modernise the property without losing its grandeur.
  • Is it possible to repair Period Properties?
    Yes, though it can be much harder to do on your own than it would be to do if you were working with professionals. We recommend that you contact us today if you have any issues at all with your Period Properties.
