Florida Historic Property and Renovation Specialty FirmSeptember 26, 2023
Here are some of the challenges of renovating a historic building:
- Historic preservation regulations:¬†Many historic buildings are protected by regulations that restrict the types of renovations that can be made. This can make it difficult to make significant changes to the building’s structure or appearance.
- Unknown conditions:¬†Historic buildings can be full of surprises. When you start renovating, you may discover unexpected problems, such as structural damage, lead paint, or asbestos. This can add to the cost and complexity of the project.
- Matching existing materials and finishes:¬†When renovating a historic building, it is important to use materials and finishes that match the original building as closely as possible. This can be difficult and expensive, especially for older or rare materials.
- Integrating modern amenities:¬†While you want to preserve the building’s historic character, you also want to make sure it is comfortable and functional for modern use. This can be a challenge when integrating modern amenities such as central heating and air conditioning, electrical wiring, and plumbing.
