Historic & Landmark Restoration

Give history new life today, tomorrow and many years to come.

The architecture of the past is just as beautiful today as it was the day it was built, but it takes work to keep historically significant homes and buildings at their peak. Whether your home needs a complete restoration, routine maintenance and repairs, basic structural work or waterproofing services to preserve its features for years to come, we can work with you to maintain the historical significance while providing any necessary repairs.

From older residential homes to landmark commercial buildings, we pay close attention to the original details of a building to restore it to its former glory. New England is full of rich history, and over the years we have restored many beautiful homes in the area. We take great pride in the restoration of historical homes and buildings to preserve them for future generations.

With strict attention to detail and a deep knowledge of and respect for history, we provide historically accurate restorations. This includes custom carpentry and cabinet services, historical moldings and sills, fireplace and chimney restoration, replacement and refinishing of wooden windows and doors and many other carpentry services that maintain the integrity of your home while ensuring it provides modern day comforts.
