Many times customers ask, “Is it possible to keep the historical look of my home?” The answer is yes! If you hire a contractor who specializes in historical home restoration, that is. A professional contractor who works on older homes should have the skills to keep the historical look of your home. Skills include, but not limited to; lead paint removal experience, a designer to help find a historical template that works, and prep and paint experience. If your contractor does not have a designer and paints outside of a historical pallet it can affect the value of your home. Another way people end up losing money is by choosing only a paint contractor to work on their home, not one that can also conduct repairs.
